“A SCRAP OF UNWRITTEN HISTORY - William Muckleston MD, of the old English gentry, born in Oswestry County of Salop, removed in early manhood in the State of Connecticut, leaving behind him his father and an elder brother who was by English laws, heir to the whole property. He made his home in Middletown, Conn., and there married and became the father of two daughters, Mary and Lucy. While Lucy was yet an infant, Dr Muckleston received news from home of both his father and his elder brother; which left him sole heir to the great English estate. Making temporary arrangements for his family, he sailed alone to England with a view to the settlement of affairs, and perished at sea, never reaching his destination. This event owing to difficult communication in that early day, remained for a long time unknown, and no effort was ever made to obtain possession of the inheritance, which indisputably belonged to the American descendants of Dr Muckleston, Mary the eldest daughter, married Elisha Burge of Connecticut, then and by some of his descendants now, erroneously spelled Birge, and was the mother of the late James and Joseph Burge of Lichfield, Connecticut, and also of Tryphena Burge (details some of her descendants).

Lucy, second daughter of Dr William Muckleston, married David Beach of Connecticut. Among her descendants was the late Jesse Beach, a revolutionary officer and father of Mrs William Humphreys, formerly of Humphreysville and Derby Connecticut.

The Muckleston family trace their ancestry to Hocskin Muckleston, boen in 1345, who married Gertrude, daughter of Hugh Kynaston. The estate of Merrington came to the Mucklestons by the marriage of Edward Muckleston with Mary, daughter and heir of Thomas Colefaxe, of Merrington. The curious in such matters will find to-day the following entries among the parish records of Oswestry:

John Muckleston, of Oswestry, Gentleman, buried April 6 1682. Aged 64 year.

John Muckleston, eldest son of above, born 1652. Buried July 16, 1702 aged 50 years. [This one died without issue]

William Muckleston. Born April 5 1663. there is no record of his marriage or death.”

Note we need to certify lucy is his daughteras the dates do not tie up!
