Capt. Roger Mallory

 


Thomas, rector of Mobberley and Dean of Chester, the father of the Virginia Mallorys

When civil war broke out in England, Thomas who was rector at Northenden church, rode immediately to the home of Robert Tatton and joined a small band holding there against Cromwell's forces. They were not well armed and were soon overtaken. Thomas seems to have been taken prisoner at this time. All his property and income were sequestered. In 1660 he petitioned Parliament to regain his property and living. A month later, Charles II being restored to the throne reinstated Thomas and made him a canon of Chester. The following December he was created a doctor of divinity and was afterward identified as 'Thomas Mallory the Devine'. He died in 1671 in Lancashire where he was rector of Eccleston and Brindle. His will was proved in Chester in May of 1674. Sons Thomas and Roger are named as being in Virginia in his will. He was married twice, first to Jane and secondly to Frances.

According to Rexann Mallory<rexannm@sweb.net> quoting from the red book "Roger was born in 1632 and obtained a grand of land in VA in 1660. Roger's Uncle Philip had no heirs nd so he willed to Roger all his holding in VA, which made Roer one of the wealthiest men in the Colony. Roger was Justice of the Peace o New Kent Co., VA, 1680-1690 and of King and Queen Co in 1693. In 1704, he was Justice of William Co. During the years 1688-1700, he acquired 4,814 acres of land in addition to his vast holding inherited from his father and his Uncle Philip. From 1676 to 1693 he was refered to as Captain Roger Mallory, Gentleman. It is possible that he may have married, because he had three sons, Roger, William and Thomas."
