High Sheriff of Middlesex

This article is about the holders of the office of Sheriff of the former English County of Middlesex. For the Sheriff of Middlesex County, Massachusetts, see Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office (Massachusetts).

This is a list of High Sheriffs of Middlesex.

History of the office

From c.1131–1889 there was no separate sheriff for the county. By a charter of Henry I the livery of the City of London were given the right to elect two sheriffs of "London and Middlesex" on a payment of £300 per annum to the Crown.[1] This continued until 1889, when the Local Government Act 1888 came into force. A single High Sheriff of Middlesex was thereafter appointed in the same manner as other English counties. At the same time, the most populous parts of Middlesex were included in the new County of London, which had its own High Sheriff.[2]

The office ceased to exist in 1965, when Middlesex was abolished. The majority of the area became part of the jurisdiction of the High Sheriff of Greater London.[3]
