Administrative / Biographical History

Malyn was a surgeon of some importance in Manchester in the early eighteenth century. His daughter married Dr Peter Mainwaring (see above) in 1731. He was born before 1665 and practised in Manchester, Sale and Nottingham. There was also a Massie Malyn (b 1688, d after 1729) practicing in Sale, who was possibly his son (see Eighteenth Century Medics).
