Milton Ernest is a village and civil parish in Bedfordshire, England, about 5mi north of Bedford itself. It had a population of 754 in 2001. This had risen to 761 according to the 2011 census. The village is situated on the east bank of the River Great Ouse, and is the site of Milton Ernest Hall, which was used as the United States Eighth Air Force's support command headquarters in the Second World War.The village is named in the Domesday Book. The entry reads:"Middletone / Mildentone: Miles Crispin and William Basset from Hugh de Beauchamp; Thorgils from Nigel d'Aubigny; Reginald from Walter of Flanders; Ivo, Hugh de Grandmesnil's steward from Adelaide, Hugh de Grandmesnil's wife; a beadle from the king. Mill."All Saints' Church was built between the 12th and 15th centuries.Possible variations in spelling may include "Milton Harneys", in 1396, & "Midelton Erneys", in 1430. The first half of the name means “Middle Farm”. The second half of the name is derived from the name of the main manor of the village and was added in the 13th century to distinguish it from Bedfordshire’s other Milton (Bryant).Milton Ernest has a small voluntary controlled village school, closely linked to the church, that has between 60 and 65 pupils drawn from this and surrounding villages. The village is in Lincroft Middle School's catchment area. The school, in the village of Oakley, is around 3mi from Milton Ernest. The upper school for the area is Sharnbrook Upper School and Community College, in the village of Sharnbrook, also around 3mi away.
