Families covered: Middelton (Mydelton) of Stockeld
[The lower section of this page was originally launched as MiddletonXY but was renamed during an exercise on various Middleton families on 13.11.08 on which date the upper section (previously within a temporary page called MiddletonXA) was added.]

  A. Sir Ralf de Midelton

  a. Sir Peter de Midelton of Midelton (a 1315)
  Visitation follows the line of Sir Peter's younger brother William. It is thought by some that the Middletons of Middleton Hall (and its cadet branch of Leighton) may have descended from this Peter. However, as far as we are aware, this has not been proved. It is noted that there were several places called Middleton which may have given rise to different families of that name.
