Kibblesworth, 1848

KIBBLESWORTH, a township, in the chapelry of Lamesley, parish and union of Chester-le-Street, Middle division of Chester ward, N. division of the county of Durham, 5 miles (S.) from Gateshead; containing 219 inhabitants. It belonged at a very early period to a family of the same name, of knightly rank, of whom mention first occurs in the 12th century, and in whose possession a part at least of the lands remained for many years subsequently to that date. The whole is now divided in very various proportions. The village is scattered; most of its inhabitants are employed in a neighbouring coal-mine.
