About Northumberland History and Directory, 1855

This database provides a lot of historical and local information for Northumberland and for England as a whole. The work begins with a review of the very early history of Great Britain, discussing subjects such as the Roman, Saxon, and Danish invasions, the dominant races of Britain, and the kingdoms and divisions of the British Isles. Following this review is a general history and description of Northumberland. This portion of the work provides information on Northumberland's agriculture, minerals, roads, rivers, castles, etc. Historical and descriptive sketches and directories are given for the areas of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Gateshead, and Berwick-upon-Tweed, as well as for all the boroughs, towns, parishes, and hamlets in Northumberland. This work is of great worth to the genealogist because of the nature of the historical and local information provided and also because of the directory, which lists the names, occupations, and addresses of the heads of households of the county.
