History of Jesmond

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:

History of Jesmond Dene

This page had links to other information, but this is no longer available.

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

Dave Cross’s web pages have also now been taken down, so the information has been copied across, but formatting is still a work in progress.
