The entry for Lord Middlesex in Latham's Index volume suggests this is Charles Sackville. Although the entry for Sackville just describes him as "styled Lord Buckhurst."

Wheatley footnotes Lord Middlesex as
"Lionel Cranfield, third and last Earl of Middlesex. Died 1674 when the title became extinct.

Lionel Cranfield was first Earl of Middlesex. The title passed to his son(s?) and the title became extinct upon their death. A grandson, Lionel Cranfield SACKVILLE, became first Earl (Duke?) of Dorcet. The distinction between the two is not made very clear in a number of references, but checking the dates will clear it up.
