An account of the history of Jesmond written by Frederick Walter Dendy in 1904 can be found here: Account of Jesmond.  This was transcribed by Dave Cross who maintains the Jesmond Network website.

Dave Cross also put together a summary of the history of Jesmond:

History of Jesmond - 1850 to 1950

History of Jesmond - 1950 to 2010

as well as keeping a copy of the History of Jesmond Dene that was on the City Council web site:

The links on this page do not work as they relate to the City Council web site that no longer exists.

There are also some Historical Maps of Jesmond - the first one shows the old Ward boundaries.
