Does anyone in the Maultsby family have any tradition of the name Moldesly or Modglin? A John Maltsby appears in Northampton County, North Carolina in 1747. Over the period of 1747 to 1760 he is clearly identified through his land records, but he variously uses the spelling Maldesly rather than Maultsby, which could be easily recognized as a misunderstanding of handwriting. But he also used the spelling Modglin. In later years in Bute county he primarily went by Maldesley or Moldesley, but also as Modglin. By the 1770's in Chatham County, his children were using the name Moldesley, but primarilly used the name Modglin, and by the 1790's and 1800's, only Modglin is used. Does anyone have any information about this?
