The surname Mallebone was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries.
