Do you spell your last name or have found any other spellings of the Mulley line?

On my line, the Mulleys have been Mulley's pretty much all the way through. There's been instances of Mulloy and Mully and small variations like that.

I stumbled upon your message while idly searching for the origins of the name "Mulley" on the web. I am married to a Mulley whose family hails from South Shields, England. His father, now in his sixties, was born there.

I'm curious if you know the origins of the name. My inlaws claim to be English, but when we were in the U.K. a while back, folks we met said it sounded more Irish to them. It doesn't appear on any of the lists of Irish names/crests I've seen.

I don't have the time to embark on a major genealogy project at this time, but we're the only Mulleys in the phone book here in State College, PA, and I'd love to know a bit of family history. Any light you can shed on the subject would be great.

If you'd like any information on our branch of the family, I'll see what I can dig up to share.

Mulleys from South Shields

Saw your message and wondered if this is of any use to you:
I have a family of Mulleys in my ancestry that originally hail from Suffolk. They moved north to the Bishop Aukland area (between 1872 and 1876). There were several children to the family, my GGgrandfather moving to Leeds in the early 1890's which is where I was born. However I do not know if the other siblings stayed in Co Durham area or moved away.
There seem to be numerous Mulleys from the Suffolk area. Although the name does sound Irish, from what I have read from other people, it most probably isn't.
I found another Mulley message board on:
one person had several explainations of the origin of the surname.
please let me know if you want more information on my Mulley line, I would like to know more on your South Shield connection if you have the information.

Benjamin/Mully(ey) from Scranton, PA

In light of new info taken from death certificates I received last week, I am now trying to make a connection with the Benjamins and Mulleys of Scranton, PA. Specifically Providence section. Mr. Ambrose Mulley was the owner of a store in Providence. My Great Great Grandfather's wife was Agnes Mully (as spelled on the death records) On the census records from 1880, Nathaniel and Agnes' two oldest boys worked as "clerks in store". At this point I believe Ambrose and Agnes were siblings. The boys worked in thier Uncle's store. I am excited about this prospect. Feel free to reply to me directly at

There is an Ambrose Mulley I am trying to make a connection with. He died in 1899 in Scranton, PA. Agnes Mulley (Mully) was my great grandmother and was married to Nathaniel Benjamin. I believe Agnes was Ambrose's sister. Do you have any information on these Mulleys.

Hello! My grandfather was Edwin Charles Mulley born in London, England in July, 1883. He had a brother, Herbert Henry Mulley, born March, 1874, in London, who later emigrated to Australia. He had three daughters (I don't have the names with me) Other siblings of Edwin and Herbert were Kate, Arthur, and Ernest. Edwin emigrated to Canada and lived in Winnipeg and then Vancouver. Any info on Australian or British connections would be appreciated. The parents were Henry Mulley and Catherine Rhoda Templeman. Thanks, Jane
