Lintz-Green

LINTZ-GREEN, a township, in the chapelry of Tanfield, parish of Chester-le-Street, union of Lanchester, Middle division of Chester ward, N. division of the county of Durham, 8 miles (S. W. by W.) from Gateshead; containing, with the township of Beamish, 2671 inhabitants. The ancient manor or vill of Lintz appears to have included the present estates of Lintz-Green, Lintz Hall, and Lintzford, and probably other separate freeholds. Lintz-Green lies on the extreme western verge of the chapelry of Tanfield; Lintz Hall is a little to the south, and Lintzford northward on the Derwent. At Low Friarside, to the west of Gibside, was a small chapel, of which some remains are still standing, in the middle of a large pasture field, near the river.
