Middlesex definitions

Merriam Webster's

geographical name former county SE England, now absorbed in Greater London

Britannica Concise

Former county, SE England, situated along the Thames River. Its earliest settlements date from 500 BC; Belgic tribes arrived in the 1st cent. BC, followed by the Romans, who established outposts along the river. It was colonized by Saxons in the early 5th cent. AD. Situated between the E. and W. Saxons, it obtained its name (meaning "middle Saxons") by AD 704. Middlesex was established as an administrative county in 1888. In 1965 Greater London incorporated parts from the former county.
