Mulcaster Early Origins



The surname Mulcaster was first found in Cumberland where they trace their lineage back to the place name Muncaster, home of Muncaster Castle, a privately owned castle overlooking the Esk river, near the west-coastal town of Ravenglass in Cumbria which dates back at least 800 years. Baron Muncaster was a title in Ireland and the United Kingdom held by the Pennington family, traditional owners of Muncaster Castle. The placename "Muncaster" contains the Latin word castra, meaning "encampment", or "fort."

An early branch of the family was found at Bewaldeth in Cumberland. "[The township] was granted by Alice de Romely to John de Utterfield; after which, the family of Mulcaster had the manor for several descents. In or about the year 1400, Robert de Mulcastre or Mulcaster conveyed it to Robert de Highmore." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
