Melim Early Origins



The surname Melim was first found in Lancashire at Melling-with-Wrayton, a civil parish in the City of Lancaster or at Melling, a village a village nearby. "In the Conqueror's survey, Mellinge, Hornebi, and Wennigetun, are placed in Yorkshire, as constituting one manor, in which Vlf, whose name is perpetuated in that of Wolfa Crag, had nine and a half carucates of land. The earliest record in which the parish is subsequently mentioned, is the charter of Roger de Poictou, who gave the church of Melling to his newly-founded priory of Lancaster." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
