Documentary Evidence


Staiths were included in the $40 rent to Tynemouth Priory for their coal pits in Elswick in 1378. In his lease of the Elswick pits in 1530 Christopher Mitford had liberty to take timber to maintain the staiths, and staith leave was included in 1538. No precise location is known.
