Today's generation of the Mullinix family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Mullinix family lived in Lancashire.

Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, Norman French and other languages became incorporated into English throughout the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Mullinix include Molinieux, Molinaux, Molineaux, Molineux, Molinex and many more.

First found in Lancashire as "an ancient Norman family, who have been possessed of the manor of Sefton, in this county, from the period of the Conquest, or very soon afterwards: it was held as a knight's fee, as of the Castle of Lancaster." [1] William de Molines was the first recorded ancestor.

In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Mullinixs to arrive on North American shores: James Molinex settled in Philadelphia in 1685; Edward Molineux, who arrived in Virginia in 1719; Jonathon Molineaux, who came to Maryland in 1726; Samuel Molineaux, who settled in Philadelphia in 1846.
