The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Mitlemass came from Michaelmas, derived from the season or day that the child was born.

Mitlemass Early Origins



The surname Mitlemass 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Mitlemass or a variant listed above: George Middlemane (Middlemast) settled in Virginia in 1679; William Middlemass, who came to Virginia in 1723; James Middlemiss, who came to America in 1726.
