Tyne and Wear HER(1366): Elswick manor - Details
Agriculture and Subsistence
Land Use Site
Elswick was probably given to Tynemouth Priory as early as 1120; was certainly in their possession in 1189, and the manor was one of ten listed in 1292. It is possible, though not certain, that the manor was located north-west of Elswick Hall, on the south side of Elswick Road, opposite the south end of Mill Lane. There was still a farm here in the mid-19th century.
