|Arthur Mullies||Mullis Family History|
To Heather and all interested in this family.
I take this window of opportunity to introduce myself and my Mullis history book.
I grew up in west central Mo., attended MU, became a college prof. and now am retired on the family farm.
In 1984 I self-published all the information I had gathered through the years on the Mullis family, including what for me was startling proof of the surname's origin in England, via Norman invader knights from Meulles, Normandy in 1066. I included that and then concentrated on the Mullis family in Colonial America from arrival in 1658 through last record found at that ime: N. C., 1774. In the intervening years as time allowed I continued my research; my approach was quite simple: base everything on documentation, actual records. Following a fact-gathering visit in England in 2010, and, having located records on Mullis in Va/NC during the 18th century not available to me in 1984, I have completed a major overhaul and up-date of that book and it now goes to 1790, with notes of where Mullises as of then later settled, or their descendants. I must confess there are gaps yet to be filled in, but every record I could find is in the book If interested, please contact me and, also provide some notion of how far back you have traced your Mullis line: approximate date and state. Oh, I almost forgot: my name is spelled MULLIES, and IT DATES TO N.C. BY 1768, in association with MULLIS branch. It may come to some as a surprise that when spelling was becoming standardized in the sixteenth century, the ancient Meulles--Molis in Latin, the legal recording language used during the medieval era right up to the sixteenth century--I discovered the first Mullis family ever known in England, in Michaelstow Parish in Cornwall County, had throughout been recorded as Molis, then Molys, to Mollys, then Mullys, Mulles, and in 1548-1585: Mullis, Mullyes
and Mullies. All those forms used interchangeably by court clerks, the Parish Register, and Manor lease (rent)rolls in the parish back to 1483: before Columbus. As you can see, I am thorough in my research, and I clearly identify sources where the information I find is found. Included are maps, charts,Tax Lists, wills and estate inventories covering Mullis from 1053 through 1660 in England; in Colonial America 1658-1790 I dearly love research and, gladly share with others so inclined. If you have or have access to Barbara Culp Parsons book MULLIS MELANGE, then my book takes you up to where Barbara began. Between the two, you may find your linage way back to 1658 as I did and demonstrate. email: email@example.com Thank you, and email whether you want the book or not; perhaps I can be of help in your search, or provide other details to what you have found
