Early History and the Millen Name

Thanks to Marsha Jane Ferguson who wrote on October 21, 2007:

"I distinctly remember my Father telling me that our family was descended from the MacMilla/ens . . . he had done some research on the family in the late 50's or so and information also came down from his father and uncle. The direct ancestor was one of 3 MacMillan cousins who stood with Bonnie Prince Charlie (Charles Edward Stuart) before his flight from the English army and from Scotland. The ancestor escaped to England and took up the noble occupation of Highwayman . . .." 

Patrick Hanks gives two possible sources for the Millen name:

"Millen is likely a topographic or place name from Middle English meaning one who lives on a lane leading to a mill. This is from mille or milne which means 'mill' and lane or lone which means 'lane.' Millen is also said to be a variant of the Irish name Mullen which comes from Maolán which means 'the tonsured one' and comes from maol which means 'bald.'"
