Documentary Evidence


The provenance for this medieval village is based on a single known documentary reference. In the Durham Priory bursar's account of 1348-9 Threptend is listed among the vills owing tithes to the cell of Wearmouth. On the assumption that it therefore lay within the parish of Monkwearmouth it must have been situated on the north side of the River Wear.
