LESBURY- where is Link End?
« on: Sunday 10 February 19 20:24 GMT (UK) »
I am hoping that someone who is familiar with the village of Lesbury can tell me where exactly Link End is? My 5 X great grandfather is recorded as living there at the time of his daughter Ann's baptism in 1781. Is the name Link End still in use today?

 Unravelling all the Thompson families in Lesbury and Warkworth is quite a challenge......I am wondering if anyone has ever listed all the Thompson lines?

Link End is shown on the 1828 Greenwood map of Northumberland. You can see it just a little to the north of Alnmouth (which was a Township of Lesbury Parish) https://communities.northumberland.gov.uk/007371FS.htm

It looks as though it was later called Marden House, which is at the north end of Alnmouth Links
