The Parish Church You have reached the website of the Milton Malsor Historical Society - MMHS for short. The Historical Society was formed in 2004 to bring together like-minded people to study and record various aspects of the village and village life, particularly of times gone by. The members of the Society meet regularly to exchange information on items of common interest, to listen to guest speakers, and to visit local places of historic interest. The Society is affiliated to the Northampton Association for Local History.

The Village School Milton Malsor is a small village situated 3 miles to the south of Northampton, right in the centre of England. At the time of the Domesday Book there were two manors in the village and the powerful Malesoure family, who were descended from followers of William the Conqueror, caused the village to be known as Middleton or Milton Malesoure - subsequently contracted to Malzor. Much has happened since then! The population has ebbed and flowed over the years, but by the year 2005 there were some 300 dwellings, occupied by 700 villagers. Many of the dwellings are built of attractive local sandstone, some retaining their thatched roofs.
