Sorry Maida was a dog - named presumably after the battle.

Hello,

I have found this informations about the Battle of Maida in the internet.

Citation:

"The Battle of Maida on 4 July 1806 saw a British expeditionary force fight a First French Empire division outside the town of Maida in Calabria, Italy during the Napoleonic Wars. John Stuart led 5,200 British troops to victory over about 6,000 French soldiers under Jean Reynier, inflicting crippling losses while incurring relatively few casualties. Maida is located in the toe of Italy, about 30 kilometres (19 mi) west of Catanzaro. ..... ...."

Hello,

I think Sir Walter Scott's Maida is in the Deerhound lines (?).

S.DOBELL'S MAIDA is the Grand daughter of Sir Walter Scott's Maida.
