The earliest record of a Muckleston in the rural county of Bedfordshire, found so far, is the baptism of Susan Muckleston daughter of Edward and Mary which took place in Streatley on 2nd March 1772.

 

There is however a marriage of a John Muckleton to Martha Waters in Toddington in 1760, who may be a relative of Edward with the surname spelt differently. The deaths of James and Anne Muckleton are also registered in Harlington in 1814 and 1816 respectively as they reach the ages of 86 and 85; it is also possible that the Muckletons were a well established Bedfordshire family. As some of Edwards children went to work in Harlington it is possible that the Muckletons and Mucklestons were connected.

 

As Edward Muckleston died 14th April 1803 in Streatley and he currently heads this branch of the family. We need to know more about this Edward to enable us to identify if this branch, from which most of the Mucklestons living today are descended, is connected to the main Shropshire tree or became Mucklestons by accident by changing their name from either Muckleston or Muggleston.
