History & History Related Items

"A reader from this town asked about its name origin, and no information turned up. However, the Essex, Middlesex, and Sussex regions of England take their names directly from the Saxons, who along with the Angles of course gave England its Anglo-Saxon heritage. And even today, there's a region in Germany known as Saxony. 'Essex' is a shortened form of 'East Saxon Region,' and Sussex comes from "South-Saxon Region," so it doesn't take much imagination to figure out how West Middlesex got its name back in England"
