The name Middlemas is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from Michaelmas, derived from the season or day that the child was born.

Middlemas Early Origins



The surname Middlemas was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat at Middlemarsh, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066, but like most Anglo Saxon families they soon found the oppression of the Norman intolerable, and moved north to Scotland where they obtained lands from a grant from the King of Scotland and became tenants of the Abbey of Kelso.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

Middlemas Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Joseph Middlemas, who settled in New York, NY in 1825

Middlemas Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • Charles Middlemas, aged 39, a labourer, arrived in South Australia in 1853 aboard the ship "Epaminondas"
