I recently found the following MALLINSON families residing in New Jersey:
In the 1880 Census for the 2nd Electoral District of the 4th Ward in the City of Paterson, NJ. Richard Mallinson, age 40, policeman, born in England Elizabeth, age 39, wife keeping home, born in England Samuel, age 5, son, student, born in New Jersey
In the 1880 Census for the 1st Electoral District of the 8th Ward of the city of Paterson, NJ, S.W. of centre line of Pine St. Janet Mallinson, age 67, keeping house, born in Scotland Jessie, age 40, working in a flax mill, born in Scotland Hellen, age 36, working in a flax mill, born in Scotland
In the 1850 Census for the Township of Hanover, Morris County, NJ. Joseph Mallinson, age 39, cotton spinner, born in England Elizabeth, age 37, born in England Joseph S., age 14, born in England
The Joseph S. above is probably my 2nd great grandfather who married Sarah E. Moshier and lived in Paterson until his death sometime in the 1890s.
I would appreaciate hearing from anyone who can fill in any of the obvious blanks, are any of these families related(?), are there any additional details(?), etc.
