In "Memoirs of the Molineux Family." Gisborne Molineux traces the evolution of the name, crests and significant ancestors from the Castle Molineux near Rouen,  France through the growth of the Molineuxes in England's North and Midlands. The text is published on this site as an aid to other genealogists tracing their Molineux ancestry. Privately published in 1882, it traces the evolution of the Molineux family in England from the time of the Conquest, beginning with William de Moulins in the 11th century AD.

This electronic version of Gisborne's work has been modified in format to utilize todays technology. However, all attempts have been made to insure that the text accurately follows Gisborne's original work. The Molineux name is spelled a variety of ways within this text, following the spelling within the original work.
