Cambois place name, speculated in Hodgson’s History of Northumberland:

“It is often written Cambhouse; and might have its name from having at it, in old times, a Cambium, or house of trade, barter or exchange. There are seaports of the same name in Scotland and France.”

The more fanciful side of my brain would like to think that a group of French soldiers on their way to Scotland to help fight the English might have stopped off here and set up home. It would make the village quite a cosmopolitan place, French, Scottish and South American influences about the place…but that’s just conjecture (seeing as Cambois has been a place since at least the 1200’s).

Hello,
My Thompson great-grandparents lived at 41 Boathouse Terrace Cambois.  They sailed to America in 1888.  I would like a description of the houses, did they have gardens, was the necessary shared, etc. Was the key returned to the manager of the properties, or could the house have been turned over to a relative?  Where did they shop; where is the railway station.  I'm writing a story and your help would be much appreciated.

Hello,
I am new to this site, and not sure yet how to navigate it all, let alone send you a photo.  But, I have three books on Bedlington that are mainly photographs.  The first is called, "Images of England - Bedlingtonshire" compiled by Evan Martin ISBN 0-7524-0784-8, and it has several images of Bedlington Council School in 1908, 1914, 1937.  There's the Village Infant School, and Church Infant's School, Whitley Memorial School.  It's really more of a collection of photos and the text leaves one wanting more (as we all do).  The other two books by Evan Martin are "The People's History Bedlingtonshire Remembered" ISBN 1 902527 52 6, and "The People's History Memories of Bedlingtonshire and Beyond" ISBN 1-902527-77-1.  I'm yearning for images, too.

Welcome to rootschat, Northumberland daughter.  We are usually a friendly bunch and don't ignore newcomers but we seem to have missed this one.

Have a look through the Northumberland pages - there have been many references to local photographs over the years.

They are my great grandchildren and the baby has been at school for a year now - maybe it's time I changed the photo!
