Nathaniel Middleton Esq.

???? - 1807


East India Co. man and then partner in the London and Middlesex Bank with Gerard Noel Noel, George Templer and John Wedgwood (each of whom q.v.). Reportedly, he also held in a personal capacity a mortgage of £16,000 over estates and enslaved people in Jamaica, entered into in the 1790s. His wife Ann Frances Morse was the daughter of John Morse (q.v.), and the couple appear to have assigned her 1/5th share in the estates of John Morse c. 1784, possibly to his wife's nephew Robert Green, and then at some stage to her brother Robert Morse (q.v.), who later returned her share.
