Early Origins of the Mildenhall family
Suffolk at Mildenhall, a small market town and civil parish which dates back to c. 1050 when it was listed as Mildenhale. By the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, the town was listed as Mitdenehalla and possibly meant "middle nook of land," having derived from the Old English words middel + halh. Mildenhall is also a village and civil parish in the Kennet Valley in Wiltshire and this village dates back further to 803 when it was listed as Mildanhald. Over one hundred years later, the village was listed as Mildenhalle in the Domesday Book. CITATION[CLOSE]
