Robert FITZROGER 2nd Baron of Warkworth, Lord Clavering, Sheriff of Northumberland
New Burn On Tyne
Newburn was first mentioned in the pages of history in 1071, when it was the residence of the Saxon Copsi, whom William the Conqueror had raised to the Earldom of Northumberland.
It was anciently a borough, the manor of which was given by King John to Robert, the son of Roger de Clavering, Baron of Warkworth. John, the last Lord Clavering, granted the reversion of it to the Crown, when Edward 111 gave it to Henry, Lord Percy, from whom it descended to the Duke of Northumberland.
