Garmondsway Moor

Primary tabs

"Garmondsway Moor is an extra-parochial place, embracing an area of 1040 statute acres, and its annual value is £3165. The number of its inhabitants in 1801 was 28; in 1811, 41; in 1821, 35; in 1831, 43; in 1841, 157; in 1851, 129; in 1861, 125; in 1871, 109; in 1881, 156; and in 1891, 160 souls. In Boldon Book, Garmondsway is stated to have contained nine oxgangs, of which five were in cultivation, and four lying waste. Bishop Pudsey endowed Sherburn Hospital with these lands, which still belong to that establishment. It is said that when King Canute performed his pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Cuthbert, he took the route of the Via Garmundi, the road or way of Gormundus the Dane, from whom the township is said to have derived its name. Here are extensive limestone quarries, giving employment to a large number of men. This place was formerly given with Bishop Middleham, but for ecclesiastical purposes has been annexed to Kelloe parish."
