It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Middleton 3: Middleton of Leighton Hall, Middleton of Middleton Hall
The following Thomas Middleton may have been a descendant of Sir Peter de Midelton of Midelton a 1315. However, HACWC reported that it is not known how this family obtained the manor of Middleton but noted that the manor was passed from the Talebois family into the Preston family who conveyed Middleton to Henry de Kennet husband of Euphemia, who may have been a Preston in 7 Ed1 1278-9. A Kennet of the next generation may have become known as 'de Middleton' or more likely that an heiress married someone who changed his name to de Middleton or someone who already bore the name Middleton.
