The history of the name Mallory begins in the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It was a name for a person who was known for bad luck and an unhappy disposition having derived from the Old French word malheure meaning unhappy or unlucky.

Mallory Early Origins



The surname Mallory 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]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

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]

During the reign of Henry III., Anketil de Malore was listed in Berkshire, Oxfordshire and and Yorkshire. About the same time, Robert Malhore, or Mallore, or Mallori, or Mallory, or Mallure was found in Northamptonshire. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list Anketil Malore in Shropshire and Crispiane Malure in Leicestershire. Later, the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls listed Johannes Malore, Alicia filius Johannes Maulore and Peter Mature (Herefordshire.) [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Mallory or a variant listed above:
