MIDDLETON Family History

This distinguished surname, of Anglo-Saxon origin, borne by the Barons of Barham, the Earls of Middleton, and having no less than forty-two Coats of Arms, is a locational name from any of the various places, at least twenty-five of them, throughout England named with the Olde English pre 7th Century "midel", middle, and "tun", a farm or settlement. These places are recorded variously as "Middeltune", "Middeltone" and "Mideltuna" in the Domesday Book of 1086 for Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Shropshire and Sussex. Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace...
