Lee Ward  Northumberland


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

LEE-WARD, a township in Rothbury parish, Northumberland; 3 miles SE of Rothbury. Acres, 1,793. Pop., 86. Houses, 23. The manor belongs to the Duke of Northumberland. Much of the surface is open moor.

The location is that marked on modern and historic maps as "The Lee". The identification with "Lee Ward" comes from GENUKI (, accessed 14/1/2011), but broadly fits the location given by the Bartholomew and Imperial gazetteers.
