HER Info

A coal mine, paying 40s rent, is listed as part of the manor in 1367. Later, in his rental of the manor in 1499/1500, John Cartington listed "A subterranean coal mine, rent 106s 8d, in the lord's hand". Its location is unknown. There were further references to mines at Newburn in the 17th century.
