Mainwaring, Mannering.—

Local, from * the manor of Warin.*
This family, so long established in
CO. Cheshire, claim to have come
with the Conqueror in the person
of Ranulph de Meinilwarin, and is
distinctly Norman, as its earlier
forms, Menilwarin and Mesnil-
warin, prove. The second half of
the name is Warin or Guarin,
a once common font-name, intro-
duced by the Normans into England;
V. Warren (a) and Wai-eing. It is
said that this name can be found
spelt in no less than 131 different

Major, Mager. — Bapt. < the
son of Malger ' or * Mauger.' The
modern form is imitative. The
font-name was fairly pofmlar in the
13th century. Mauger is found as
a single personal name in the
Hundred Rolls (ii. 609, and again
"• 797)' For other instances, v.

I find no evidence to prove that
Major as a surname is the Latin
major ^ i.e. mayor, a town magistrate
(v. Mair). The present military
major is modem from a surname
point of view.

Makeman, Maokman. —

? Bapt * the son of Maymond '

the k and ck represent the
original g sound. As a Lincoln-
shire form this is the more likely.
Other forms of the surname are
Mayman, Maidman, and Maidment,

Malbon, Mallabone, Malle-
bone, MaUabnnd.— T Local, * of
Malbanc'(?). As Malbon undoubtedly
arose in Cheshire, it probably
represents the old de Malbancs of
that county. Ellen de Malbanc
was second wife of Sir Robert
de Stokeport, who was living in
ia68 (East Cheshire, i. 337-8).
Otherwise I cannot explain it.
The corruptions into Mallabone,
Mallabund, &c., are not singular;
cf. Allibone for Alban. The d in
Mallabund is excrescent, as in Sim-
monds, or the provincialism goumd
for goum. The corruptions seem
to have increased as the name
extended into the further counties
of Sufford and Warwick. A family
named Malbon resided near
Mottram, co. Cheshire, for many

Malin.— Bapt. < theson of Malin';
v. Mallinson.

Ma.1k1n, Malkinson. — Bapt.

'the son of Matilda,' from dim.
Malkin. < Malkyne or Mawt,
propyr name (Molt, K., Mawde,
W.), Matildis (Matilda)*: Prompt.
Parv. In the face of this clear
statement it seems strange that
Malkin should have been uni-
versally treated as the dim. of
Mary. * It was formerly a common
diminutive of Mary' (Halliwell).
I suspect Malkin represented Mary
in the North of England, and
Matilda in Norfolk and South-East
England generally. At any rate,
Maid Marian was also known as
Malkin, and Marian, or more cor-
rectly Marion, is an unquestionable
diminutive of Mary. Malkin is
found early :
