In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Newland like this:
NEWLAND-CUM-WOODHOUSE-MOOR, an extra-parochial tract in Wakefield district, W. R. Yorkshire; 3 miles N E of Wakefield. Pop., 78. Houses, 8. Apreceptory of the Knights-Templars was founded here in the time of King John.
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 Newland has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Wakefield. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Newland and units named after it.
