Tyne and Wear HER(1310): Newburn, Jacks Cross - Details
Newburn, Jacks Cross
Religious Ritual and Funerary
The description of the boundaries of Newburn manor in 1613 included a reference to "a certen wood crosse called Jacks Crosse in the way leading from Newborne to Newcastle...". Its site must have been somewhere on the road along the river and was presumably of medieval date.
