Maybe should you read
http://docs.qgis.org/2.14/en/docs/user_manual/working_with_vector/attribute_table.html#creating-one-to-many-relations
to see what the relations are designed for.

You can fix the content of each map item by checking "Lock layers for map
items" in its properties tab or creating a layer preset.
See
