Early Origins of the Mallerey family


The surname Mallerey was first found in Leicestershire at Kirkby-Mallory, a parish, in the union of Market-Bosworth, hundred of Sparkenhoe. "This place derived its name from the family of Malory, its ancient lords, the first of whom noticed in history was Geoffrey, father of Sir Ankitell Malory, Knt., governor of Leicester Castle under Robert Blanchmains, Earl of Leicester, in the reign of Henry II." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The first record of the family was Geoffrey Maloret who was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. Later Richard Mallorei was found in Nottinghamshire c. 1155 and almost twenty years later, William Maleuerei was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Yorkshire in 1170. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Mallerey family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become powerful new nations. Among early immigrants of the Mallerey surname to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Capt. Roger Mallory, (c.1637-c. 1696), English immigrant, holder of the 1660 patent on 2,514 acres in New Kent County, Virginia and direct paternal ancestor of thousands of Mallory descendants in North America.
