A History of the County of Oxford mentions the family in a section on Wardington: "There has been much continuity of individual families at Wardington. Some of the families in the survey of 1552 appear in 1623 among the purchasers of land on the former episcopal estate; and descendants of eight families which purchased land in 1623 still owned land in the parish in 1762though by 1785 all save two of them had ceased to do so. Eight families in all (Chamberlayne, French, Gardner, Short, Gubbins, Hirons, Muddin, and Hunt) survived until the inclosure of Wardington in 1762 in possession of lands bought in 1623...The break-up of the former episcopal estate, its further partition in 1623, and the sale of Williamscot manor in 1633 were followed by much buying and selling, increased owner-occupancy, and a comparatively high level of prosperity among the yeoman farmers." Later Muddens were mentioned in the history as cordwainers: "successive members of the Muddin family (John, William, and another William) were cordwainers from the 1690s to 1758".
