The Anglo-Saxon name Mullington comes from the family having resided in either of the settlements named Millington in Cheshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, or at any farm with a mill. The surname Mullington belongs to both the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads, and the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.

Mullington Early Origins



The surname Mullington was first found in Cheshire at Millington, a civil parish or at Millington, a small village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Both were listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. The Cheshire parish was listed as Mulintune and at that time was held by William Malbank. Rather small, it had land enough for one plough. However the Yorkshire listings were spelt Mileton, Milleton and Milletone and each had their own entry. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

These have evolved into the modern day places of Millington Woods, Millington Pastures and Millington Springs. The place name literally means "farmstead with a mill" having derived from the Old English myln + tun. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Mullington Spelling Variations



Mullington has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Spelling variants included: Millington, Milington, Mellington and others.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Mullingtons to arrive on North American shores: Joan Millington and her husband, who settled in Virginia in 1650; John Millington was a servant and settled in Barbados in 1680; Nathaniel Millingtons settled in Maryland in 1774.
