Early Origins of the Milbank family

The surname Milbank was first found in Northumberland. However, some of the family were found at early times in the township of Snape in the North Riding of Yorkshire. Snape Castle was held by many families but "Thorpe Perrow, the seat of Mr. [Mark] Milbank Esq., is a handsome mansion here, surrounded by an extensive park and fine plantations. A chapel which formerly belonged to the castle, has been beautifully fitted up by Mr. Milbank, and divine service is performed in it by the vicar of Well." [1]
