Deciphering a place name
« on: Saturday 30 September 17 11:14 BST (UK) »
Attached is an extract from the 1619 Visitation of Cambridgeshire which mentions Malyhall in Lincolnshire.

I have run out of 'googling' ideas as to what was meant and wondered whether anyone can work it out.

thanks

Just a suggestion . . . . .   Sounds like the name of a property.  -    Specially given the name beside the previous generation.

I don't know just guessing, and going by the way some of my distant ancestors were written up.

- or possibly a now deserted /non existent village!

I agree but sometimes the name of the hall / property can match the location. I feel that this one should not be that hard.

The NS that married Alice was born c1564

I have NS's will and know where he & Alice were buried, I have also sorted out the marriages, births, etc of children.

Carol, thanks.

I think Marley Hall is a good suggestion, but that one is in Yorkshire. However I have also found one in Cheshire and another in the midlands. It is quite likely that there is or was one in Lincolnshire as well.

Regarding the links you sent earlier, I have tried those as well, also been looking at Lincolnshire maps in the vain hope that something stands out.

Nothing obvious in Lincolnshire wills and admons from mid 1500's to 1750, marriage indexes and licences, tried various searches on Lincstothe past, searched the baptism, marriage, death and apprentice indexes and finally PCC wills.

Slightly frustrating

The 1575 visitation has 'translated' Malyhall to Maltby Hall in Lincolnshire. The only one I have found so far is in the Maltby in S Yorkshire.

There could be another in Maltby (nr Louth) or Maltby le Marsh
