Leemailing  Northumberland


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Leemailing like this:

LEEMAILING, a township in Bellingham parish, Northumberland, on the North Tyne river, 1 mile NW of Bellingham. Pop., 234. Houses, 48. Hesleyside here is the seat. of the Charltons, and has a neat domestic chapel. Stone is largely quarried.

The location is that of Hesleyside, as Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of England (1831), in its entry for Leemailing, describes Hesleyside as withing the township. The location also corresponds broadly to the location given by the Bartholomew and Imperial gazetteers, i.e. a mile NW of Bellingham.
