Ingleby-Berwick

INGLEBY-BERWICK, a township, in the parish of Stainton, union of Stockton, W. division of the liberty of Langbaurgh, N. riding of York, 3¾ miles (N. E.) from Yarm; containing 138 inhabitants. At the time of the Domesday survey, the lands here were described with those of Acklam, to which the hamlet pertained, as is implied in the term Berwick: the ancient name of the place was Berewyke-juxta-Tees. The township is situated in the western part of Cleveland, close to the river Tees, which is here joined on the east by the Leven, whose banks are in this place naked, and rise abruptly to a considerable height.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
