"ALWINTON, or ALLENTON PARISH. Extends from the borders of Scotland at Makenden, to Burn Foot, near Trewit Mains, a distance of about 14 miles; and from Shill-Moor southward to Farnham, more than 9 miles. It is a mountainous region, lying on the north side of the Coquet river, and stretching from both sides of the river Alwine, which rises 5½ miles N. of Alwinton, and falls into the Coquet, near that village. A poem. entitled "the Marriage of the Coquet and Alwine," by an unknown author, was printed in 1817, for John Adamson, Esq. of Newcastle." [From History, Directory, and Gazetteer of the counties of Durham and Northumberland, Parson and White, 1828]
