• Description

    "Eachwick would seem to have been, after the English conquest, the "wig" or fortified abode of a noble bearing a name like Acca. Half the manor of Eachwick was given to the prior and convent of Hexham, about A.D. 1140, by Eobert, son of Hubert de la Vale and his mother Richolda ; and Richolda confirmed to them her rights in the other moiety.....During the reign of Henry III., Peter de Faudon gave 7 acres at Eachwick to Hexham Priory.

All these grants were, in consequence of the originals having been burnt by the Scots, made the subject of an inquisition taken at Newcastle, the Friday before Holy Cross Day, A.D. 1295, by a jury, on which Richard Turpyn and William de Echewyk served, and confirmed by Edward I. in the charter of Inspeximus given there under the Great Seal, 23rd November 1297....."
