Hetton-le-Hole village








Documentary Evidence

A "Hetton" appeared in Boldon Buke, c.1183, when it was held for hald a knight's fee. It was recorded in the i.p.m of Peter de Brackenbury of 1349 that he and his wife Cecilia held the manor of Hetton for life, with remainder to his son Thomas, still for half a knight's fee. Other parts of the manor belonged, in 1380, to the Latons, from whom it descended to the Tylliols and Musgraves. Surtees equated this reference with Hetton-le-Hole, suggesting it was half the original manor and had developed later than Hetton-on-the Hill. The two settlements aquired the tag the le-hill and the other one le-hole in the 16th century. The early core of Hetton-le-Hole appears to be the area bounded by Front Street (E), Park View (N), and the burn in Hetton Dean (W and S). To the north, in the mid 19th cenuty, was Hetton Hall (HER7706).
