Middelham History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Middelham family

The surname Middelham was first found in Durham where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded in Durham at Bishop Middleham. Edward of Middleham, Prince of Wales, 1st Earl of Salisbury (1473-1484), was the only child of King Richard III of England and his queen consort, Anne Neville.
