Origins of surname
There is some speculation that this surname has the same derivation as Mellow and Mellor, from ancient British moel bre, meaning 'bare hill', but this cannot be confirmed. The family tree below suggests that Millow is a corruption of Mulot, but we have not been able to confirm the earlier generations of the tree.
The name was first recorded in Jersey in the 1850s.
