Trewhitt Township, 1848


TREWHITT, a township, in the parish and union of Rothbury, W. division of Coquetdale ward, N. division of Northumberland; containing 130 inhabitants. High Trewhitt is 4¼ miles (N.W.) and Low Trewhitt 4½ miles (N.W. by N.) from Rothbury. These places were in the time of James I. possessed by Sir Ephraim Widdrington: the family of Clavering held the former in the reign of Charles I., but forfeited it by their attachment to the Stuarts. Low Trewhitt lies at the foot of a declivity, on the west side of the Wreigh burn; while High Trewhitt is seated on an eminence about a mile to the north-east.
