Millington Surname History



The Anglo-Saxon name Millington comes from when the family resided in either of the settlements named Millington in Cheshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, or at any farm with a mill. The surname Millington belongs to both the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads, and the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.


Early Origins of the Millington family


The surname Millington was first found in Cheshire at Millington, a civil parish or at Millington, a small village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Both were listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. The Cheshire parish was listed as Mulintune and at that time was held by William Malbank. Rather small, it had land enough for one plough. However the Yorkshire listings were spelt Mileton, Milleton and Milletone and each had their own entry. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

These have evolved into the modern day places of Millington Woods, Millington Pastures and Millington Springs. The place name literally means "farmstead with a mill" having derived from the Old English myln + tun. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Millington family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Millington or a variant listed above:
