Newsham  Northumberland


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

NEWSHAM, a lordship in Earsdon parish, Northumberland; on the coast, and on the Blyth and Tyne railway, at the junction of the short branch to Blyth, 1¾mile S W of Blyth. It has a station at the railway junction. Pop. in 1851, 524; in 1861, 948. Houses, 188. The increase of pop. was caused by the extension of collieries. The property belonged formerly to the Delavels, the Cramlingtons, and others; and belongs now to Sir M. Ridley, Bart. Bricks and tiles are largely made.
