Early Origins of the Madlock family
The surname Madlock was first found in Derbyshire
, at Matlock, a parish, in the union of Bakewell, hundred
of Wirksworth. "This place, which was formerly called Mesterford or Metesford, is equally celebrated for the beauty of its scenery, and the purity of its medicinal springs, and consists at present of the village and the baths, nearly a mile and a half distant from each other. The waters were first applied to medicinal uses about the end of the seventeenth century." CITATION[CLOSE]
