The origins of the name Midelmes are from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from Michaelmas, derived from the season or day that the child was born.

Midelmes Early Origins



The surname Midelmes 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.

Midelmes Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Midelmes family name include Middlemass, Middlemas, Middlemaist, Middlemiss and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Midelmes surname or a spelling variation of the name include: George Middlemane (Middlemast) settled in Virginia in 1679; William Middlemass, who came to Virginia in 1723; James Middlemiss, who came to America in 1726.
