It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Mo31 =32 =34. William de Molines, later of Sephton b c 1040
William was father or possibly brother of ...
the founder of the family, was so named, according to some authorities, from Moulins, a town of Bourbonnais, France. This doubtful as it probably took its origin from some place in Normandy. There is a village of Moulineaux, situated at the foot of a hill about ten miles from Rouen, where the church contains some curious sculpture of the thirteenth century. On the summit of the hill are the remains of an ancient stronghold known as the Chateau of Robert le Diable. Froissart also mentions the capture of a Castle of Molineux: “The lorde Courcy and the lorde de Ryuer,” so runs the chronicle, “beseiged Carentyne with great puissance, and at last they dyde so moche, that they had it by treatie, and so it was gyuen up to the obeysance of the Frenche kyng. Thus they had Carentyne, and put therein newe men of warre, and then departed and went to the Castell of Molineaux, and within three dayes they had it by treatie.” Carentyne, or Carenton, is a town in Lower Normandy, situated on the river Douve.

The name of Molineux was anciently called by the common people in Lancashire “Mulas,” and it is so rendered in the Testa de Nevill, or Liber Feudorum, compiled temp. Henry III. and Edward I. Roger Gerneth, who held the lordship of Spec, or Speke, shortly after the Conquest, gave two carucates of land to “Richard de Mulas,” or Molineux. In some instances—that of Adam, Bishop of Chichester, for example—the name was spelt Moleyns.
