Milton Malsor is a small village situated three miles to the south of Northampton. At the time of the Domesday Book there were two manors in the village and the powerful Malesoure family, who descended from followers of William the Conqueror, caused the village to be known as Middleton or Milton Malesoure – subsequently contracted to Malzor. The population has fluctuated. There are some three hundred dwellings with a population of over seven hundred. Many of the dwellings are built of attractive local sandstone, some retaining their thatched roofs.
