Callaley with Yetlington Township, 1848


CALLALEY, with Yetlington, a township, in the parish of Whittingham, union of Rothbury, N. division of Coquetdale ward and of Northumberland, 10½ miles (W. by S.) from Alnwick; containing 306 inhabitants, and comprising 3,610 acres, of which 450 are common or waste. This place anciently gave name to its possessors; and was granted, by Gilbert de Callaley, in the reign of Henry III., to Robert Fitz-Roger, Baron of Warkworth and Clavering, an ancestor of the present family of Clavering, one of the most ancient in the county. Callaley Castle, their residence, stands in a large and beautiful park, and the scenery around is truly picturesque. Attached is a place of worship for Roman Catholics. The village of Yetlington is three and a half miles west-south-west of Whittingham. On Castle Hill, a conical eminence embosomed in woods, is a circular intrenchment with vestiges of buildings, denoting a British or Saxon position.
