The first Mallories appear in the 1100's, shortly after the time of William the Conqueror, and likely had fought with him. The name has also been spelled Malory, Mallorie, Malore, Malri, and Maleure. The name is probably Norman French in origin, meaning something close to "weighed with misfortune," or it could be from the word, "maillerie," which is a mill that breaks up hemp in the manufacturing of textiles. The first time the exact spelling of Mallory appears is in Leicestershire by 1774. During King Stephen's reign (1135-1154), this family held lands in Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Rutland, Cambridgeshire, Yorkshire, and Cheshire.
Richard Mallory was living during the reigns of Kings Stephen and Henry II, i.e., 1135-1189.
