Tyne and Wear HER(1296): Newburn, Saxon burgh - Details
Newburn, Saxon burgh
Newburn formed part of the royal demesne of the Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, which included Bamburgh, Warkworth and Corbridge. When the kingdom ceased to exist, the land and all the royal privileges passed to the official earls of Northumbria. In 1095 this demesne passed to the crown of England as a result of the revolt of Robert de Mowbray. No reference to Newburn as a borough has been found later than 1201.
