Tyne and Wear HER(976): Haining farm - Details
Agriculture and Subsistence
Listed among the Exchequer lands of Herrington in Hatfield's Survey of 1381, Thomas Colvill is shown holding, by right of his wife, a place called "le Haynyng". It contained, by estimation, 100 acres of land and was subject to the annual rent of 37s 2d. It is not clear where to site this place since there were three Hainings - Low, Middle and High - in the mid 19th century, and perhaps earlier. At the time of the Tithe Awards Low Haining was in the township of East and Middle Herrington, the other two in Newbottle, so perhaps the former is the most probable.
