Excerpt from A History of Northumberland, Vol. 1: The Parish of Bamburgh, With the Chapelry of Belford

It was resolved that, so far as possible, the new book should follow the lines laid down by the late Rev. John Hodgson, and that those districts which he had left untouched should first be dealt with. In this way new ground would be broken, and some progress would be made towards completing that great History of Northumberland, monumental alike in its conception and execution, which Mr. Hodgson was unable to finish in his lifetime. The large mass of material, collected by Mr. Hodgson for the unfinished portions of his book, has been placed at the disposal of the committee by the historian's grandson, Mr. John George Hodgson.

The History of Northumberland, as planned and partially carried out by Mr. Hodgson, has furnished the model on which the present work endeavours to proceed. The work is a parochial history, to be supplemented at some future time if practicable by a volume in which the fruits of minute research will be summarised and tabulated. For the parochial history two units of division have been adopted, the old ecclesiastical parish and its subdivision the township.
