Moneylaws


The adjacent hamlets of East Moneylaws and West Moneylaws in Northumberland are located close to the border with Scotland, about 8½ miles north-west of Wooler and 2 miles south of Cornhill-on-Tweed. The remains of an Iron Age settlement are located on the nearby Moneylaws Hill. There was a Medieval village at Moneylaws, but this declined in size in the 16th and 17th century.[1] In the 19th century, Moneylaws was a township in the ancient parish of Carham. Today, Moneylaws forms part of the Civil Parish of Carham.

MONEYLAWS, a township, in the parish of Carham, union of Glendale, W. division of Glendale ward, N. division of Northumberland, 4½ miles (S E. by S.) from Coldstream. It includes Old Moneylaws, and comprises about 850 acres, all arable land, with the exception of a few acres of grass; the soil is principally loam, and the surface mountainous, with extensive and beautiful prospects. The great tithes have been commuted for £161, and those of the incumbent for £28. In the Castle field here are the remains of a Roman camp.
