Tyne and Wear HER(1333): Mason village

  • Description

    "The vill of "Merdesfen" was first mentioned in 1190 when a toft there was granted by Sir Roger Bertram to St. Batholomew's Nunnery. There were 8 taxpayers in 1296....Possibly the village, as such, did not survive the Middle Ages, and its site was thereafter marked by the surviving North Farm and the former South Farm, at the north-east end of Dinnington...."
