The Mullock & Mulock Families of Great Britain & Ireland
By Robert Mullock-Morgans & Robert B.D.M. Hughes-Mullock FRAS
THE early origins of the Mullock/Mulock are Irish, a well-established local family probably based within the territories of the Dal-Araidhe, modern day Northern Ireland. Medieval texts make reference to the druid of Slemish, Miliuc Maccu Buan, the famed pagan druid who bought and enslaved the young St. Patrick. It is known that Miliuc would later throw himself upon his own funeral pyre rather than fall before his old slave. The children of Miliuc all became converts to the Christian religion. His eldest son, Guasacht, would be enthroned a Bishop, whilst his daughters Bronach and Eltene would become saints. The old druid also had a grandson St. Mochae, who would later establish Nenendrum Abbey in Ulster.
The oldest Irish branch of the family seems to have been clustered around Ballynakill, which lies about two and a half miles from Meelick, formerly called Miloc, on the Shannon. The presumption that the name is derived from the connection to the family is hard to discount.
Family history relates that some members of the family survived and fled to Western Scotland to flee the new religion, and in doing so established two distinct branches of the family. The Mullock family was known to be under the protection of the MacGregor Clan until at least the fourteenth century. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, Mullock family offshoots were to be found in Dumfries and Galloway in Western Scotland. At around the same time there are members of the Mullock family appearing in the English County Shire of Cheshire.
The Mullock family of Cheshire was principally clustered around the townships of Audlem, Malpas, Acton and Whitchurch. The oldest definite branch of the family descends from yeoman farmer Richard Mullock (1716-1766), a middle-class landowner and principal tenant of Sir Lynch Salusbury Cotton. By the mid-eighteenth century the Mullock family had been successful farmers and built Lodemore, a substantial half-timbered property in the Parish of Audlem (which no longer survives).
During the ‘Glorious Revolution’ of 1688 a great schism occurred in the family, largely as a result of the sides which family members allied themselves to. The Irish branch, though Protestant, sided with the Catholic King James II, while the English branch allied themselves to the Protestant William of Orange. In the wake of this, the first true separation came, noticeable in the variation of the surname. From henceforth the two main branches could easily be identified.
Although no family has the right to bear arms except for the descendants of the original bearer, the study of armorial bearings does provide an insight into the origins of a family. The arms depicted above were granted to the Mullock family sometime during the medieval period, and various branches have used variations of these arms across the centuries. In armorial terms these arms are described as been “azure, a cross moline quarter pierced, in the dexter chief a fetterlock. Crest, a lion passent in the dexter paw a crosslet fitchee”. The motto of the Mullock/Mulock family is In Hoc Signo Vinces, roughly translated as “by this sign thou shalt conquer”, the motto of the Emperor Constantine. This obviously alludes the Mullock family’s early connection with Christianity in the British Isles.
Thomas Mulock, or Mullock, of Ballynakill, in the parish of Dononaughta, County Galway, lying two and a half miles from Meelick, married about the middle of the seventeenth century, Elizabeth Mullock of Cheshire, and left at his death two sons: (A1.) Thomas, and (A2.) Nicholas.
A1. Thomas Mullock (c. 1655) Late of Moate, County Westmeath, by his marriage with his first wife Frances Meares, had a son (B1.) Jeremiah. He married secondly, Margaret Conran, and of this marriage there was issue three sons viz.: (B2.) John; (B3.) Thomas, ancestor of the Mulock’s of Kilnagarna, Bath and of Ballinagore; (B4.) Robert, ancestor of the Mulock’s of Canada, and the Homan-Mulocks of Bellair and Ballycumber.

In August 1720 he married Ann, daughter of Robert Drought, of Park, King’s County. Prior to the marriage an indenture of settlement was executed between Robert Drought and Thomas Mullock. This deed of settlement was the last documented occasion that members of the Mulock family spelt their surname in this way. In this document both Thomas and John signed their surname ‘Mullock’ but, in the will of 1755, John spelled his name ‘Mulock’.
There was no issue of this marriage and by his will of 1755, John Mulock, then of Kilnagarna, devised the Ballyard estate to his nephew the Rev. John Mulock and his heirs, subject to a small annuity payable to the testator’s brother Robert Mullock. In his will he also devised all his interests in the holdings in Moate, County Westmeath to his brother. John Mullock died without issue on 22nd September 1757. In the announcement of his death in Exshaw’s Magazine of the period, he is described as then ‘of Castlerea, King’s County’.
B3. Thomas Mullock (1700-1777). Of Skinner Row, Dublin, and afterwards of Kilnagarna, the third son of Thomas Mullock, of Moate, became a conveyancer and public notary – then a branch of the legal profession – and was admitted to practice under a faculty from the Prerogative Court of Ireland. In 1744 the staunch Protestant Church of Ireland Mulock family formed a union with the staunch Roman Catholic Lawless family. On 17th May 1744 Thomas married Mary, daughter of James Lawless, of Shankill, Co. Dublin, by his first wife Margaret, daughter of Thomas Cave.
The Lawless family, originally from Hoddesdon, Herts. came to Ireland in the fourteenth century or earlier, and was seated successively at Shanganagh, Co. Dublin, Talbot Inch, Co. Kilkenny and Shankill, Co. Dublin. The above-named James Lawless was a first cousin of Robert Lawless, of Dublin and of Abingdon, Co. Limerick, father of Sir Nicholas Lawless, Bart., created Baron Cloncurry on 22nd September 1789. The Lawless family were Roman Catholic and devoted adherents of the House of Stuart; and when King James II and the remnants of his forces were encamped at Loughlinstown, Co. Dublin after the disastrous Battle of the Boyne, the King was entertained by Peter Lawless, who then resided in the fortified house of Puck’s Castle, on the lands of Rathmichael, near Shankill. A few days afterwards Mrs. Lawless gave birth to the above-named James Lawless, who received his baptismal name in compliment to the Sovereign. The King, with the Duke of Berwick serving as proxy, acted as one of his sponsors.

D1. Rev. Thomas Samuel Mulock (1789-1869) Born in Dublin, he was a man of great ability, but even greater eccentricity. He matriculated at Magdalen Hall, Oxford, but soon abandoned his studies at the University. He was for some time Private Secretary to the eminent statesman George, later Viscount Canning, with whom he was on intimate terms. In 1819 he published his ‘Answer given by the Gospel to the Atheism of all the Ages’ and he wrote various letters on Christianity to Lord Byron, whose ways and ideas he sought to mend. He delivered courses of lectures In London, Geneva and Paris. He appears to have entered the Baptist ministry and founded a Baptist Chapel at Stoke-on-Trent. On the 7th June 1825 he married Dinah, daughter of Thomas Mellard, of Newcastle-under-Lyme. Abandoning the Baptist ministry, he became the editor of a newspaper in Scotland. During the latter years of his life he wrote many pamphlets on various subjects, social and political. Many contemporary commentators wrote that Mulock’s evangelicalism was only superseded by his eccentricity, while another wrote ‘Reverend Mulock, whose profession of extreme evangelical religiousness was not carried out by his practice’. By the early 1830s he had been confined to lunatic asylum, his chapel had been taken over and his family moved to Newcastle-under-Lyme. Shortly after the death of his wife on 30th April 1845 he deserted his family. He lived to the ripe old age of eighty and died at Stafford on the 11th August 1869. He was survived by three children, two sons and a daughter.
E1. Dinah Mariah Mulock (1826-1887). Better known as the author of ‘John Halifax, Gentleman’. Born on the 20th April 1826 at Stoke-upon-Trent, and owing to her father’s erratic habits, she was led at a very early age to seek to make a livelihood by her pen. She settled in London in around 1846. On the 30th April 1865 she married George Lillie Craik, Esq. and died without issue at Shortlands, Kent, on the 12th October 1887 and was buried at Keston in the same county. A beautiful memorial to her is erected in the Abbey Church, Tewksbury, and the portrait of her by Herbert Von Herrkomer can be viewed at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The position she held in contemporary society can be partially identified by the composition of the committee formed to place a memorial to her at Tewkesbury. The committee included Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Matthew Arnold, Robert Browning, Sir John E. Millais, Professor T H Huxley, Mrs Margaret Elephant and James Russell Lowell.
E2. Thomas Mellard Mulock (1827-1847). Born on the 18th November 1827, he died unmarried and without issue on the 22nd February 1847. A promising artist, he was forced to give up his studies and articled himself to the captain of a merchant ship. He was an Art School contemporary of Holman Hunt and others of the pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Hunt admired the young Mulock’s good looks. At the start of his second voyage Thomas fell from ship into the dry dock where it was berthed. Both his thighs were broken and he died after a few day of intense suffering. William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) named his daughter Gladys Millais Mulock Holman Hunt in honour of Thomas.
E3. Benjamin Robert Mulock (1829-1863) Born on the 18th June 1829 at Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, he emigrated to Australia in 1850 aged just 21 years. In 1855 after returning to England he served with the Royal Army Works Corps in the Crimea. In 1858 he served as an Engineer under Mr Newlands, well-known Liverpool City Engineer. After educating himself in the art of photography he became from November 1859 until April of 1862 the Construction Photographer for the Bahia to San Francisco Railway (BSFR) in Brazil under its principal engineer Hutton Vignoles. Upon his return to England he continued with Civil Engineering, however he became, like his father, prone to bouts of mental illness. On 17th June 1863 he was accidentally killed while absconding from an Asylum.
D2. William Mulock is believed to have emigrated from the United Kingdom; but he was not heard of after 1845, and no further information concerning him has been obtained.

Educated at Upper Canada College and the University of Toronto, where his father was vice-chancellor and which he left after 1901, prior to graduating but with his future secured. In 1897 he was the sole beneficiary of the estate of his great-aunt Sarah Crowther, widow of William Cawthra and William Allan Murray, both wealthy businessmen. At the age of twenty-one Cawthra began to receive instalments of an estate worth $2,700,000, the Canadian press dubbing him ‘the boy millionaire’. The residue, including Sarah Cawthra Murray’s magnificent residences, was to become his after he turned twenty-five. Why his sisters and elder brother were passed over remains a mystery.
On 24th June 1903 he married Miss Adèle Baldwin Falconbridge, daughter of the Hon. Sir William Glenholme Falconbridge K.C., M.A., B.A., Kt (1846-1920), Chief Justice of the King’s Bench, Ontario and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, 1900-1920. This marriage caused much consternation, because Adèle was Catholic and Cawthra was an Anglican. Catholic Archbishop Denis O’Connor, intent on discouraging mixed marriages, insisted that they be married in the priest’s residence rather than in a church. Sir William Mulock, at this time a cabinet minister, enlisted pressure from Sir Wilfred Laurier, Canadian Prime Minister and leading Canadian Catholics, but O’Connor resisted and the marriage took place in the residence at Our Lady of Lourdes Church. [Source: Dictionary of Canadian Biography].
In 1904 Cawthra was recruited to the Board of Toronto General Hospital by its chairman, after someone (possibly Sir William Mulock), suggested that he would be spoiled by his money unless put to work. He also sat on the Board of the Toronto Guild of Civic Art, leading to his construction at a cost of $750,000 the Royal Alexandra Theatre on King Street, completed in 1907.
A taste for entrepreneurship facilitated Mulock’s entry into business. In 1908 he bought a seat on the Canadian Stock Exchange and following the receipt of his entire wealth in 1909 he became Director of Confederation Life Association, the Imperial Bank of Canada and the National Trust Co., Ltd. As vice-president of the Maple Leaf Mining Co., Ltd., he was responsible for the creation of the Canada Bread Co., Ltd in 1911, which he controlled. In addition he was President of the National Iron Works Ltd., and the Guardian Trust Co., Ltd. His business portfolio was expanded by property at Brighton Beach, Lake Simcoe and Toronto’s exclusive Rosedale district. In 1913 the Toronto Daily Star estimated Cawthra Mulock’s wealth to be $4 million, Toronto’s fifth wealthiest man.
Like his father, Mulock was a Liberal. A member of the general committee of the Ontario Liberal Association, he enjoyed good relations with Sir Wilfred Laurier, and he and his wife were regular guests at the Prime Minister’s home.
Cawthra Mulock, who the Toronto Daily Star described as ‘ a strikingly handsome young man, in a bloodless, blond way, the golden boy of Edwardian Toronto’, died suddenly on 1st December 1918 while visiting New York, a casualty of the Spanish Influenza epidemic. He was brought back to Toronto and interred in St. James’ Cemetery. His estate, valued at $2,351,211.87, was divided amongst his children, (I1.) Adèle Cawthra; (I2.) Frances Cawthra; (I3.)

Together they built a 300-seat summer theatre, the Red Barn Theatre. At the opening Harry Belafonte sang and the new theatre was one the first to show Tennessee Williams’s The Glass Menagerie and Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes. The first season was a financial failure due to its staging of serious drama and Al left, moving to the United Kingdom.

Here he had one of his few leading roles in Huyendo del Halcon or Fly From The Hawk (Cecil Barker, 1966). This early success was followed by roles as ‘Mugnier’ in Lost Command (Mark Robson, 1966); ‘One-armed Bounty Hunter’ in Il buono, il brutto, il Cattivo or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Sergio Leone, 1966); ‘Pat’ in El tesoro de Makuba or The Treasure of Makuba and as ‘Wurlitz the Wizard’ in Una Bruja sin Escoba or A Witch Without a Broom (Jose Maria Elorrieta, 1967); ‘The Beggar’ in I Crudeli or The Cruel Ones (Sergio Corbucci, 1967); ‘Private’ in Reflections in a Golden Eye (John Huston, 1967); ‘Sgt Marvin Mulberry’ in Battle Beneath the Earth (Montgomery Tully, 1967) and as ‘Wild Jack’ in I giorni dell’ira (Tony Valerii, 1968).
His final role came in 1968 and ended controversially. In 1968 he won the role as ‘Knuckles’ in a new Sergio Leone western, C’era una volta il West or Once Upon A Time in the West. In the thirteen minute preamble sequence to the film Al Mulock (Knuckles), Woody Strode (Stoney) and Jack Elam (Snakey) are three bandits from Frank’s Gang (Henry Fonda) at the deserted cattle station with Charles Bronson (Harmonica). Whilst on location in Guadix in Spain Mulock, alleged by Sergio Leone to be a drunk and drug addict – though no one else asserts this - committed suicide by jumping from the roof of a hotel. One of the film's screenwriters Mickey Knox and production manager Claudio Mancini were in a hotel room when they saw his body pass their window. Mancini put Mulock in his car to drive him to the hospital. Knox claimed in an interview that before that, director Sergio Leone said to Mancini "get the costume, we need the costume".

The nephew of railway engineer and MP, Joseph Locke, Alfred Austin was born on 30th May 1835, at Headingly, near Leeds.

In 1883 he co-founded the National Review with W J Courthope and served as joint-editor until 1893 and sole editor until 1896.
As a pot Austin never ranked highly in the opinions of his peers, often derided as being a ‘Banjo Byron’. In 1896 he was appointed Poet Laureate in succession to Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Many saw this as a political rather than literary appointment, due to Austin’s steadfast support for Disraeli and his personal friend Lord Salisbury, the Prime Minister. Austin continued to serve as Poet Laureate until his death in 1913. During his lifetime Austin served as Deputy-Lieutenant for the county of Hereford. [Source: Obituaries, The Times, 3rd June 1913]

In 1954 he negotiated the final steps of the treaty with President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt under which British troops withdrew from Suez; so when he discovered the joint British and French invasion plan at a meeting on the 14th October 1956 he believed that the mission was mistaken and deceitful. On the 31st October, after failed attempts by future Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, to persuade him not to he resigned his post as Deputy Foreign Secretary but for security reasons, he did not give the customary resignation speech to the House of Commons, and his unexplained action proved so unpopular that his constituents forced him to give up his seat in Parliament.
After Suez Sir Anthony kept his silence over the Suez Crisis until 1967 when in his book No End of a Lesson, he explained that backing the Suez action would have put him in the position of lying to the House of Commons and the United Nations. "Either I had to tell the whole story as I saw it, or say nothing at all," he wrote. "And as long as any of the chief protagonists of the Suez war still held high office in Britain it would clearly have been a grave disservice to the nation, which they still led and represented in the councils of the world, to have told the whole story." The Suez Crisis had caused so much bitterness that even eleven years after his resignation he came under pressure from the Cabinet Secretary not to proceed and there was even a threat of prosecution under the Official Secrets Act.
In addition to politics, Sir Harold Nutting wrote a number of books including I Saw for Myself, (1958); Disarmament, (1959); Europe Will Not Wait, (1960); Lawrence of Arabia, (1961); The Arabs, (1964); Gordon, Martyr and Misfit, (1966); No End of a Lesson, (1967); Scramble for Africa: the Great Trek to The Boer War, (1970); Nasser, (1972). Sir Harold Anthony Nutting died on 24th February 1999.
He was an internationalist, an early enthusiast for British membership of the European Economic Community and an Arabist who was a founding member of the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding (CAABU) in 1967. Despite remaining a political outcast for the rest of his life, Nutting remained highly regarded in geo-political circles. In the words of the political writer Peter Kellner: "He belonged to, and was set fair to lead, a new generation of post-war Tories: moderate, inclusive and internationalist. He preferred the spirit of the United Nations Charter to the ethos of empire. He understood earlier than most of his contemporaries that Britain needed to find a new role in the world."
