Doxford

DOXFORD, a township, in the parish of Ellingham, union of Alnwick, S. division of Bambrough ward, N. division of Northumberland, 7½ miles (N.) from Alnwick; containing 56 inhabitants. It is situated one mile south from Preston, and east of the road between Alnwick and Belford; not far distant is a stream which runs into the North Sea. There is a good quarry of freestone, from which Doxford House, a commodious and well-built mansion, formerly the residence of the Taylor family, was erected.
