Early Middleton History-

By the late Georgian era, the Middleton family were established in the West Riding of Yorkshire as cultural and civic figures, particularly in the legal profession. The law firm Messrs Middleton & Sons was founded in Leeds in 1834 by gentleman farmer and solicitor William Middleton, Esq. (1807–1884) of Gledhow Grange-Hawkhills Estate. One of his sons, solicitor Arthur Middleton (1846–1907), inherited Hawkhills from his father.[9][10][11][12][13]

William Middleton's descendants include his grandson (Richard) Noël Middleton (1878–1951), a solicitor, director of the family woollen manufacturing firm and co-founder of the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra.[14][15][16]

Noël Middleton's youngest son was Captain Peter Francis Middleton, who was Prince Philip's co-pilot on a tour of South America.[17][18] Peter Middleton's second son is entrepreneur Michael Francis Middleton, who married Carole Goldsmith

The Middletons were "friends of British royalty" to whom, in their civic capacity, they "played host as long ago as 1926".[31][32][33][34]

The great-grandfather of Catherine, Princess of Wales, Noël Middleton, and his elder brother, photographer[35] and civil engineer[36]

Captain William Middleton (1874–1940)[37] reportedly wed their fiancées in Leeds at Mill Hill Chapel in the years before the First World War.

Mrs William Middleton (née Agnes Clara Talbot) was the niece of Sir James Kitson, 1st Baronet (later 1st Baron Airedale),[38][39] who led the chapel's congregation at this time,[40] while Mrs Noël Middleton (née Olive Christiana Lupton)[41] was the first cousin-once-removed of Baroness von Schunck (née Kate Lupton),[42] and the second cousin of Baroness Airedale (née Florence von Schunck) and of Lady Bullock (née Barbara Lupton).[43][44][45][46][29]
