Families covered: Mauleverer

Commoners starts its article on this family with: "The name of this famiy in ancient writings is called Malus-Leporarius (Mal-levorer), the bad hare-hunter, and tradition says, that a gentleman of Yorkshire, being to let slip a brace of greyhounds, to run for a considerable wager, so held them in swing that they were more likely to strangle themselves than kill the hare, when the designation was fixed upon the unskilful sportsman, and transmitted to his posterity. But Peter le Neve, Norroy, supposes it to be Malus-operarius, or the bad-worker". We do not know what relationship, if any, there was between this family and that shown on Mauleverer03.
