Study Description 

Stamfordham is a village and civil parish in Northumberland, England. The place-name Stamfordham is first attested in the Pipe Rolls for 1188, where it appears as Stanfordhamn, which roughly translates as ‘village at the stony ford’.

There is large village green with a market cross (the Butter Cross, dating from 1735) and also an old village lock-up on the village green in Stamfordham which was built in the early 19th century.

This study sets out to provide a comprehensive overview of the village. How did the village evolve? What have been the key events? Who lived here, and how where they are employed? Where can you find out more information?
