Parish History[edit | edit source]
The Parish of St Hilda is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Yorkshire, created in 1744 from West Acklam, Yorkshire Ancient Parish; located on Market Place.
Other places in the parish include: Airsholme, Newport near Middlesbrough, Newport, and Linthorpe.
MIDDLESBROUGH, a town and parish, on the river Tees, in the union, and within the limits of the port, of Stockton-upon-Tees, W. division of the liberty of Langbaurgh, N. riding of York. This place, at a very early period, had a chapel dedicated to St. Hilda. The church was erected in 1840, on the site of the ancient chapel of St. Hilda. There are places of worship for Independents, Primitive Methodists, and Wesleyans. 
Mydilsburgh is the earliest recorded form of the name. The element '-burgh', from the Old English burh (meaning 'fort') denotes an ancient fort or settlement of pre-Anglian origin. The spelling brough sets Middlesbrough apart from other English towns, which typically use the spelling borough.
It is not certain if Mydil was someone's name or a reference to its position (middle) in between the centers of Durham and Whitby). The burgh, though, may have included a monastic cell and was probably situated on the elevated land where the church of St Hilda's (demolished in 1969) was later built. The area around the church was demolished and subsequently redeveloped removing the terraced streets.
