Tyne and Wear HER(1312): Newburn, Thrusse or Thrush mill - Details
Newburn, Thrusse or Thrush mill
Water Power Production Site
In his rental of the manor of Newburn, 1499/1500, John Cartington listed "Thrusse mill, yearly rent 2s to the provost of Newborn". The survey of 1592 records a rent of 2s for "Passage of the water at Trush Mylne", and Stockdale's Survey of 1607 noted that "The farmer of Thrush Milne holds a water course to the mill and the passage of the Tyne". It was clearly a water mill, but its location is not known. It may have been one of the anonymous mills, sometimes specified as corn mills, attached to the manor in 1250, 1367, 1592, 1613.
