The surname Mullyngton 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.

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. CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Mullyngton family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Mullyngtons to arrive in North America: 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.
