I am researching the MARLING name in Nova Scotia. A Peter MARLING born 1811 in NS had a son named MILBY MARLING. This seemed like an unusual given name thus my search. I can not find the origins as yet of the MARLING family. There is a Barnet MARLING in Shelburne for the 1791 tax. I believe he is mine but must prove it. If you can shed some light on any connection here I would appreciate it.
