"ALLERTON MAULEVERER, a parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire, near Knaresborough, the ancient seat of the famous family of the Maulevrers, Kts. who, in old writings, are called Mali Lepararit; because, as Dr. Fuller says, they managed the dogs ill in hunting a hare. They were so ancient a family, that one of them was sheriff in the R. of Hen. V. and another Knt. of the Shire in that of Edw. III. Rich. Arundel, Esq; treasurer of his Majesty's chamber, has a seat here."
