Who were the parents of Mallachia Maund? Mallachia was probably born before 1750. The three known possibilities are: Lott, William III,and Noah.

Lott Maund married twice: If Mallachia is the son of Lott, his mother is probably Lott's second wife Prudence Hughlett. The will of Lott Maund has not been located. The Norfolk Co VA reference goes only through 1753. [145] His will is not listed in the Edgecombe Co NC will index. [150 V2] Therefore the death dates of Lott and Prudence are unknown.

Noah Maund. There is no documentation of a marriage or heir. His1752 will is listed in a Edgecombe Co NC will index. [150] Maybe Vol I of 'Estate Records of Edgecombe Co NC' has the will. Only Vol II is located in the Houston Co AL Library.

William Maund III and Mary Howell. His 1761 Edgecombe Co NC will only lists Hardie as a son.[053] However this does not exclude Mallachia being his son.


At this time, there is no definite conclusion as to the parentage of Mallachia. None of the three above are ruled out.
