Malbon a Family History  (pre 1066 to present)

The history of this branch of the family moves back through time to before the Norman invasion in 1066. Investigations by ourselves and others have placed our earliest known ancestors in a town by the name of Brecy northern France.

Once our ancestors set foot in this country, they like many other families who provided assistance to William the Conqueror, were allocated vast tracts of land; Ours being most of South Cheshire, parts of North Wales and North Shropshire. The Falaise Roll carries 315 names of all the Noblemen who  were involved with William.

Once initially settled in the area our earliest ancestors took up residence in the area known  as Wick Malbanc (Latin = Malbedeng (Within what is now Crewe & Nantwich Cheshire)) confirmed by the Domesday book. Given that in those days only the nobles (Norman surname protocol) used what we now call a surname they would in order to  integrate with the local community take the a surname reflecting the local district, which in our case was  'de-Wick Malbanc ((Latin = Malbedeng)', meaning 'of Wick Malbanc'), with this then over time changing into 'Malbank' and eventually 'Malbon'. The remaining members retained their original surname 'de-Brecy ((Braceio)', or translated  'of Brecy') until they gained land or control elsewhere

Other variants of the original Malbanc include Mallbone, Milbanks (Yorkshire), Milbanke(Baron Wentworth) and I hope to find others.

Over time the family spread its branches, some would fade due to no male heirs, others like mine have carried on to today. Along the way my ancestors have held public office in Congleton, Cheshire as Mayor Thomas Malbon (b.circa 1630 & d. 23/12/1711) , to his son John Malbon (b.06/1656 & d. 11/1746) a Curate & Teacher in Butterton nr. Leek  to his son John Malbon (b17/12/1682 & d. 11/1746) a Parish Clerk again in Butterton.

There is also  Malbon House Farm in Butterton.

From Butterton the family branches again extended out with my line coming to Cheadle & Mobberley, Staffordshire, again the branches diverged with my line staying put in the area until my father Alan Malbon left after marring my mother Beryl Lawton in 1961.
