In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Netherton like this:
Netherton North Side and Netherton South Side, 2 townships, Alwinton par., Northumberland-North Side, 762 ac., pop. 49; South Side, 731 ac., pop. 109; the townships contain Netherton, vil., 6½ miles NW. of Rothbury; P.O.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Netherton has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Alnwick. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Netherton and units named after it.
