Searching for "MIDDLETON"

You searched for "MIDDLETON" in our simplified list of the main towns and villages, but the match we found was not what you wanted. There are several other ways of finding places within Vision of Britain, so read on for detailed advice and 20 possible matches we have found for you:

  • If you meant to type something else:

  • If you typed a postcode, it needs to be a full postcode: some letters, then some numbers, then more letters. Old-style postal districts like "SE3" are not precise enough (if you know the location but do not have a precise postcode or placename, see below):

  • If you are looking for a place-name, it needs to be the name of a town or village, or possibly a district within a town. We do not know about individual streets or buildings, unless they give their names to a larger area (though you might try our collections of Historical Gazetteers and British travel writing). Do not include the name of a county, region or nation with the place-name: if we know of more than one place in Britain with the same name, you get to choose the right one from a list or map:

  • You have just searched a list of the main towns, villages and localities of Britain which we have kept as simple as possible. It is based on a much more detailed list of legally defined administrative units: counties, districts, parishes, wapentakes and so on. This is the real heart of our system, and you may be better off directly searching it. These administrative units are not currently included within "places" and exactly match your search term:
    Unit Name Type of Unit Containing Unit (and Type)
    MIDDLETON Manor ROTHWELL CP/AP (Parish-level Unit)
    MIDDLETON Manor BRADING CP/AP (Parish-level Unit)
    MIDDLETON LG_Ward Parish-level Unit WIRKSWORTH UD (Local Government District)
    MIDDLETON Irish Civil Parish CORK (Irish County)
    MIDDLETON LG_Ward Parish-level Unit LEEDS CB/MB (Local Government District)
    MIDDLETON Poor Law Union CORK (Irish County)
    MIDDLETON HalfHundred Ancient District SUSSEX (Ancient County)
    It may also be worth using "sound-alike" and wildcard searching to find units with names similar to your search term:

  • If you are looking for hills, rivers, castles ... or pretty much anything other than the "places" where people live and lived, you need to look in our collection of Historical Gazetteers. This contains the complete text of three gazetteers published in the late 19th century — over 90,000 entries. The following descriptive gazetteer entries exactly match your search term:
    Place name County Type of entry Source
    Middleton Derbyshire ecclesiastical district and village Bartholomew
    Middleton Glamorgan   Bartholomew
    Middleton Kinross Shire a small village Groome
    Middleton Westmeath seat Bartholomew
    Middleton Northumberland railway station Bartholomew

    MIDDLETON Northumberland a railway station Imperial

    MIDDLETON (Dirty) Herefordshire a place Imperial
    It may also be worth using "sound-alike" and wildcard searching to find names similar to your search term:

  • Place-names also appear in our collection of British travel writing. If the place-name you are interested in appears in our simplified list of "places", the search you have just done should lead you to mentions by travellers. However, many other places are mentioned, including places outside Britain and weird mis-spellings. You can search for them in the Travel Writing section of this site.

  • If you know where you are interested in, but don't know the place-name, go to our historical mapping, and zoom in on the area you are interested in. Click on the "Information" icon, and your mouse pointer should change into a question mark: click again on the location you are interested in. This will take you to a page for that location, with links to both administrative units, modern and historical, which cover it, and to places which were nearby. For example, if you know where an ancestor lived, Vision of Britain can tell you the parish and Registration District it was in, helping you locate your ancestor's birth, marriage or death.
