Who was the person who engraved the Midland shotgun?

One cannot be certain who engraved the gun, but it is done to a high standard. It may have been done by Harry Morris, who was active in Birmingham from 1906 to 1964. However, as the gun appears to be from the London trade, it may have been engraved by Harry Kell (1881-1958). The other possibility is Jack Sumner (c1885-1940s).

What’s the date on my Midland gun co shotgun?

The number 840 is the lowest that I have seen for a Midland Gun Co shotgun. Though it is not possible to ascribe a definite date to your gun, I suspect it is more like 1900 than 1910. Its most interesting feature is that it bears London proof marks. This suggests it was made by a jobbing gunmaker in London.
