My MIDDLEBROOK Ancestry 

Early MIDDLEBROOK references

The earliest reference to a MIDDLEBROOK that I have come across was in the 14th century:

    1334   Thomas de MIDDELBROKE (Subsidy Rolls for Kent).

These come from The Yorkshire Biographical Database of the York Minster Library & Archives:

    1510   Thomas MIDDLEBROOK of Craven (Muster Roll)

    1522   John MIDDLEBROOK of Craven (Lay Subsidy)

    1546   Christopher MIDDLEBROOK  Deanery of Doncaster (Chantry Survey)

    1553   William MYDELBROKE of Carleton (Will)

There are many 16th century references in the IGI.   Here are just a few:

    1554  The birth of James MIDDLEBROCK at Aldborough, Yorkshire.

    19/05/1563   The baptism, at South Stoke in Lincolnshire, of Myghell MEDYLBROKE.

    08/10/1582   The marriage, at Keighley in Yorkshire, of Izabell MIDLEBROOK & Anthonie WALKER.
