The Midland Circuit up to 1863 comprised Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Warwickshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland. By an order in Council of 8 November 1863 Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, and Rutland were transferred to the Norfolk Circuit, and Yorkshire was transferred to the Midland Circuit from the old Northern Circuit.
In 1876 Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland plus Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire were transferred back from the former Norfolk Circuit by order in Council. Yorkshire was also transferred to the newly-created North-Eastern Circuit.
