"Crossgate is a township in the parish of St. Margaret's, taking in the western suburbs of the town, and the site of that historic battle, Neville's Cross. Its area is 454 acres, ratable value £12,570."
"Framwellgate Township was formerly included in the ancient chapelry of St. Margaret, and a great portion of it forms the north-western suburb of Durham, and participates in the privileges of the city. It was governed by a bailiff, appointed by the bishops, till the charters of Bishops Pilkington and Matthew incorporated it with the city of Durham. The township now comprises 3717 acres, being an increase of 250 - the area of Finchale Abbey Farm, which was added to this township in 1886, and taken from that of Elvet; and its ratable value is £25,151."
