Re: Malpass Family - Gornall. Nr Dudley
Cousin Lisa, The earliest record we have is a John Mophats who was imported into the Virginia Colony (Northumberland County, Virginia) on 20 April 1664 by a Col. Richard Lee. About twenty years later: 20 June 1688- John Malpus(being a native of this country)servt to Christopher Garlington, is adjudged to be fourteen years of age. This could be the son of the earlier John. A few years later a Richard Malepass shows up in a 1694 record on the Virginia-North Carolina border. It is this Richard that most American Malpasses are traced to.
