A Middleton & No Pembertons in Tithing Maps of Nantwich
Searched the tithing maps (http://maps.cheshire.gov.uk/tithemaps/) for any Pembertons and Middletons near Nantwich. Found only William Middleton, who occupied a croft (plot 81) owned by William Foster and John Minshull in the township of Alvaston. William's use was mowing. It was recorded as 1 rood and 8 perches. A rood is an acre and 8 perches is 132 feet so am not certain what that means. The shape of the parcel is a fat teardrop.
