Documentary Evidence


The Northumberland County History asserts that "mention is made of coal mines belonging to the priory at Merden, or Marden, in 1316 (sic)...", though the prior's coal workings at Marden are said to have been destroyed in 1315 by a Scottish army which actually got as far as the priory.
