We have no documentary information and but vague traditions con-
cerning the nativity or nationality of the ancestors of the Mullikin families
in Maryland. Some venerable persons of the name have assumed that two
brothers came from the North of Scotland to the Province, and the peculiar
spelling of the surname gives strength to this assumption. The broad
Scotch pronunciation of milk is viii/k, and of Milliken would be MuHikiii.
We do know that many associates and neighbors of the early Maryland
Mullikins had Scottish surnames, and that Patrick Mullikin once purchased
a tract of land known as " Scotland ; " probably so called from having been
settled from natives of that country.

While we find the surname written by early scribes in a variety of forms
in the provincial records, there is not an instance known where one of this
family signed his name other than "Mullikin."

In the records at Annapolis are found the statement that a female
named Jatie Midlican, — should probably be Mullikin, — was brought
Over with eighty-nine others by Samuel Gibbons in the ship "Bachelor"
from Bristol, England. There are families still living in Maryland who
have used this orthography ; and, as many branches of the clan in Georgia,
the Carolinas and Mississippi, were descended from Maryland or Virginia
ancestors and spell their surname " Mullican, " we are inclined to the belief
that all were from the same parent stock as the Mullikins. The name
Mullikin is found recorded in Virginia of date before the American Revo-
lution, and the late Howard Mullikin found evidence to show that the early
Maryland families crossed the Potomac from the "Old Dominion."

The early Mullikins of Maryland were among the " adventurers " and
** undertakers " who came over to "inhabit and plant " under Lord Balti-
more, who was Proprietary of the Province. These emigrants came into
Maryland in companies and were transported thither by persons of means
at their own charges under inducements offered in the conditions of settle-
ment, which are set forth in documents found in the Maryland archives at
Annapolis.

Patrick Mullikin and James Mullikin came into the Province of
Maryland long before they got their land patents, but we have no dates.
They were evidently persons of respectability, possessed of considerable
means, as one, at least, received grants of land in consideration of trans-
porting several emigrants into the Province. These men were probabl}^
brothers or near relatives. They took up land side by side in Dorchester
county, and subsequently in Calvert county, Maryland. The same Christian
names are found in the records of the two branches among the early gen-
erations, and' wills were witnessed by the members of the two families
interchangeably — showing an intimate association of interest.

The late Howard Mullikin of the Talbot county family had made careful
investigation of the genealogy, and records furnished by this careful authority
constituted the basis of the family history which will follow. To supplement

information anil paid considerable money ft)r certilied copies <jf the Land
Patents, abstracts of wills, and other documents found in this book.

The Mullikin families were owners of extensive and valuable plantations
and before the Emancipation Proclamation held numerous slaves. They
were intermarried with the oldest, most respectable, and wealthy families
in Maryland — the Howards, Belts, Kemps, Woodwards, DuI^Us, Andersons,
\Vorthini:;tons, Gaithers, Harwoods, Wrightmans, Bowdells, Parrotts, Mitch-
ells, Claylands, Holmes', Pickerings, Pahners.

The early generations were communicants of the Episcopal churches and
the vital statistics of the families were recorded in the church registers.
After the great Methodist reformation swept over Maryland many of the
MuUikins were devoutly aflliliated with that denomination.

Physically, the Mullikins in Maryland were tall, large framed, brawny
men ; their complexion in the early generations, fair and florid. Some
of them by inheritance from maternal tributaries of blood became corpulent
and of darker complexion.

As a family, they were possessed of superior intelligence and public
spirit. They were conservative and did not seek for political preferment nor
any official distinction. Some of them showed military tastes and held
commissions during the revolution — and subsequently. Others were church
w'ardens and vestrymen. A few were successful professional teachers.

The Mullikins who owned plantations during the early years of Maryland
history produced enormous quantities of tobacco which was shipped to
England and exchanged for such commodities as were indispensible in their
families. Materials for the clothing of the Mullikins was all purchased
abroad and largely made up upon the plantations by Irish tailors and the
neighborhood seamstresses.

" Biue-eyed " flax was raised on the plantations and dressed by slaves.
The daughters in the Mullikin households were taught to spin, sew and
knit, and the linen used for clothing, table, and toilet was often woven by
them. Wool and cotton were also hand-dressed on the plantations and
woven into coarse cloth. Some of the families had a building erected for
the spinning and weaving; others had a place set apart for this industry in
the kitchen, near, but not adjoining the plantation mansion.

The "gentry" wove linen and wool, brocade of silk, and Erench prints
of brocade patterns, all imported. The early men in the Mullikin family
wore the conventional colonial costume — George Washington style — long
coats with broad full skirts ornamented with brass buttons ; knee breeches
with silver buckles; silk stockings and "pumps" (low shoes) with silver
buckles, and fine linen underwear. About the close of the Revolution the
well-to-do began to wear finer cotton goods, and one of the old Mullikins
was wont to tell how he rebelled against wearing his first cotton shirt, and
cried \\\\^x\ his mother insisted that he must put it on. A kind of cloth
.called "prunella" was imported and of this material the women made
their slippers.

The ladies wore very short-waisted, low-necked dresses with long trains
which were held up by negro boys when they walked through the gardens
and over the plantations, or when they visited a neighbor's house. Eancy
the scene ! Matrons wore thread-lace caps and very high shell combs.



;)14 THE MULLIKIN FAMILY IN MARYLAND.

Grandmothers wore turbans of fine white " mull " or white muslin. Young
women wore high combs also, and belts with golden buckles often set with
precious stones. When making an afternoon call, or a day's visit, the
MuUikin ladies took their knitting, quilt-piecing, or fine sewing; thus
uniting sociability and utility.

It was customary for the Mullikins, the gentlemen, to congregate at
each others houses and play games both inside and out. They played at
'' quoits " and cards, and danced with the ladies on waxed floors. Card-
playing was carried to the extreme of betting and playing for money, even
among ladies of the "smart set."

Many of the early Mullikins kept hounds, bred from the best imported
stock, and frequently met with the planters roundabout, uniting their packs
after the English fashion for the fox hunt. Young ladies were early taught
to ride in the saddle and often joined in the field sports. The gallant who
claimed the fox, decorated the hunting cap of his sweetheart with the tail.

The old folk were driven to church in fine family carriages, while the
young gentlemen and young ladies rode horseback. The slaves were usually
required to remain without doors to care for the Mullikin equipage and to
be ready, when the service closed, to take their master and mistress home.

The principal room in the old Mullikin mansion at the " Forks of the
Patuxent, " was called the " Hall, " and there the young folk danced and
the old ladies had quilting parties. Apple-butter making was an occasion
of amusement in the kitchen, and the butter was stirred by negroes.

Cornshucking, followed by the singing and dancing peculiar to the col-
ored people, was often watched with great interest by the Mullikin families.

When a party of young people assembled at the Mullikin mansion for
recreation, they had a game called "Dusting the Butter." A pound of
butter was tied up in a canvas bag and hung before the open fire, while a
slave kept it constantly turning. At intervals some one of the company
would raise the cry, " Who will dust the butter " ? In turn some young lady
would spring forward and shake flour over the bag of melting butter. If
the person called did not respond promptly, — and this was often the case, —
a forfeit was demanded, and paid later in the evening. The butter was con-
stantly melting and ozing through the bag, but the dry flour thrown on and'
mixing with it, prevented it from dropping until it was crusted and browned
by the heat and was very good eating when the bag was taken down.

v-^.



James Mullikin came to Maryland contemporary witli Iiis kinsman, Patrick
MuUikin, who was head of the " Eastern Shore l"'amily." He patented a
rhree-hundred acre tract of land under Lord Baltimore, in Dorchester Co.,)
\Id., calleil *' Mullikin's Orchard", on April iSth, 1664, and a two-hundred
acre tract in the same county denominated " Mullikin's Green, " on Aug.
14th, 1665. From this man are descended the "Western Shore Families,"
early settled in Anne Aruiulel and Prince George Counties. James Mul-
likin was married prior to 18.68 to Mary Darnali.,* widow of John Darnall,
who was evidently his second wife. He made his will on Aug:. i8th, 1660 ;
this was proved Oct. 16, 1669, the year of his death. i'his testament is
very brief. He caused to be written: "First, I give and bequeath all my
lands and all that I have unto Mary Mullikin my wife and all my children,
and that none other shall have to do with anything therein, she only pay-
ing my debts." This was witnessed by William Murrah and IJenjamin
Granger. In his will he was styled "Planter of Patuxent, " and the old
Mullikin estate so long in possession of this branch of the family has been
described as situated at the "Forks of the Patuxent." From the old Land
Plats now preserved at the homestead, it appears that the " Forks" means a
bend, or loop, in the Patuxent river. One who claimed to know, said James
Mullikin purchased the Patuxent property for two of his sons and that he,
meanwhile, lived in another county. From his title in the will we conclude
that this James was a resident of Anne Arundel county. The names of all
of his children are not known as they are not mentioned in his will. It is
recorded, however, in the Provincial records, as follows : " An act for the
payment of the public charge of the Province in Calvert county, to the
orphan children of James Mullikin, 450 pounds of tobacco." This was of
date April, 1671 ; was due to their father for some service he had rendered
the province and was paid by order of the Provincial Assembly. From the
plural number employed in his will, " all my children, " and the corres-
ponding statement in the last quoted entry of the early records, we know
that there were several children in this family ; and we have found in the
registers of the Episcopal churches the names of Mullikins of a date so
early that we are safe in assuming that they were the offspring of this James
Mullikin. Some of these were probably children of his first wife, and sons
may have settled in other sections of Maryland as heads of families whose
genealogical connections have not been satisfactorily established. There
are reasons for believing that this James Mullikin, and Patrick Mullikin of
the Eastern Shore family, were brothers. They both settled in Calvert
county, and took up land near each other in Dorchester county.



*I am not sure about this surname. The late Howard Mullikin of Baltimore, Md.,
wrote me: "it is Darnell or Darnerall." In one branch of the Mullikin family it was
clearly written Diivall; but the families may not be identical. Illegible chirography is
the cause of many errors of spelling in personal names. Author.

CHILDREN OF JAMES MULLIKIN A^rD MARY DENRALL.

James MuUikin-' (2), son of James Mullikin, was b. before 1663 as proved
by a Chancery Deposition in the Land Commissioner's office at Annapolis,
I\Id. He was evidently his father's successor to the old estate in Anne
Arundel county. He was a man of considerable enterprise and consigned
his crops of tobacco to English merchants, exchanging this " Indian weed "
for such articles as were needed on his plantation. He made his will April
25, 1740, and must have been an aged man. His wife's name was Charity.
He gave his son Je /-efni a /i a negro named " Robert." Gave his son Benjamin
a negro named "Snow," — with condition that if either son should die
before the age of 18, the survivor should have both negroes. He gave his
son Tho7nas a negro boy. Gave his daughter, Mary Howard, 20 pounds in
money. Gave his daughter, Elizabeth Durall* a negro girl named "Hannah."
Gave his son yfliOT^.r a negro named "Pompey." Provides that his sons
Benjamin, Jeremiah and Thomas " enjoy the benefit of their own labor" after
thev reach the age of 18. Uutil that time thev were to be maintained and
educated by their mother. Balance of his property bequeathed to his
children, James, Be?ijamiji,/eremia/i, Thomas, and Elizabeth. Gave grand-
son, James Durall, the first child of negro Hannah, " when it is born."
This will was witnessed by Thomas Mullikin and John Mullikin. Names
of children, far as known, will follow.
