Excerpt: ... THE MULFORD FAMILY HE records of the Mulford Family are, un fortunately, not very complete, but the line can be traced back to the latter half of the sixteenth century.

The mansion dates from early in the eighteenth century; and during the Revolution was, at times, occupied by Generals Howe and Cornwallis and other British officers.
