It must be supposed that the village of Newburn was a direct successor of the Anglo-saxon burgh, perhaps in the 13th century. It was the centre of a parish with 14 taxpayers in 1296, 19 in 1312, and one of the largest villages in the area. In 1332 the manor of Newburn, of which the village was part, was granted to Henry Percy, second lord of Alnwick, in whose family it remained. The village still retains some of its original plan though few of its early buildings. It has a 2-row plan with green on an east-west axis, immediately west of the burn. A row of tofts and crofts fronting the river at the south- west end of the village appears to be a later addition.
