Documentary Evidence


In 1354 it was found that Robert of Byker (died 1349) had been seised of 42 acres in Shieldfield... a limekiln worth 3s 3d.... It is not clear, however, as to whether all the property listed in the 1354 document was in Shieldfield. The area of the limekilns excavated on the west shore of the Swirle was transferred to Newcastle in 1299; Shieldfield was included within Newcastle in 1549.
