The surname Mallock was first found in Devon 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. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held lands.

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Mallock has been recorded under many different variations, including Mallack, Mallake, Mallac, Mallagyn and others.
