Agriculture and Subsistence
Farendon-grange is listed as one of the properties of Hexham Priory, its boundaries described in great detail, suggesting that most of its land was in a single block between the vills of Herrington (sic) and Silksworth, but in the territory of the latter. Also mentioned are a windmill, oven and brewhouse. Its precise location is unknown.
