Notes / History Middleton was the son of local landowner Edward Rayne. Following his father's sudden death in 1847, he helped his mother to run their West Barnes estate. By 1857 he was a respected member of the Vestry and surveyor of the parish highways.

In 1859 Middleton left Britain and began a successful career as a rail engineer in Madras and Allalhabad.
