Derived from the name of the territory of the Middle Saxons, Middlesex had by the end of the nineteenth century become very much part of London. The county was formally abolished in 1965, although retained as a postal district until the 1990s. However, its name continues to be used today, particularly in connestion with sport and, notably, cricket.
