Middlewick History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Middlewick family
The surname Middlewick was first found in Cheshire East, at Middlewich, a market town that dates back to the Domesday Book in 1086  where it was listed as Mildestuich and literally means "middlemost salt-works."  There was a settlement there since at least the time of the Roman occupation and has always been an important center for the extraction of salt. The Romans called the place Salinae because of its surrounding salt deposits and this has remained the principal industry for the past 2,000 years.
