Witnesses: John DUNKERLY;   John DUNKERLY the younger;   Ann DUNKERLY.
Probate issued at Chester 29 Aug 1791.
Submitter's Note: the above Thomas MIDDLETON of Liverpool was probably the son of William MIDDLETON and his wife Arminal HEGINBOTHAM, christened at Thomas Becket [CelF] 13 Jan 1716/17 and who married Elizabeth the daughter of James CLEGG. Ann and William would be Thomas's siblings but I'm not sure about Joshua MIDDLETON.
