Granted by the Masonian Proprietors in 1749, the town was named after Sir Charles Middleton, 1st Baron Barham, who was in charge of convoy service between Barbados and the colonies The land was first settled shortly before the Revolutionary War by settlers from Lee and Rochester Soon after the War, its population was challenged when a number of Quaker families led by the town auditor, Nicholas Austin, left for the more peaceful setting of Austin, Quebec Although the soil is rocky and unsuited for cultivation, cider was made in considerable quantities, and maple syrup to some extent2

Middleton was situated on the road between the New Hampshire Seacoast and Wolfeboro, the location of Colonial Governor John Wentworth's summer home, Kingswood Today the road survives as "Governors Road" in northern Rochester and Milton and continues as "Kings Highway" through Middleton3 Neglect of the road caused the governor to bill the proprietors for repairs he had to make for safe travel to Kingswood, built in 1771 Middleton was incorporated on March 4, 1778, and originally included Brookfield, which was split off in December 17944
