The name Mullynton is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in either of the settlements named Millington in Cheshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, or at any farm with a mill. The surname Mullynton 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.

Mullynton Early Origins



The surname Mullynton 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]

Mullynton Spelling Variations

As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Mullynton include: Millington, Milington, Mellington and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Mullynton or a variant listed above: 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.
