Religious Ritual and Funerary
Place of Worship
A document from the reign of Edward I refers to "a chapel anciently at Heaton, which in the year 1299 was honoured with the presence of King Edward I to hear a boy bishop perform the vespers of St. Nicholas therein, on the 7th day of December that year...". There is no record of a building and no known site, though it has been suggested that it was probably near Adam of Jesmond's house.
