Nesbit township in Doddington parish, Northumberland, England was once the site of a medieval village. In maps published during the 17th to 19th centuries, the name of the settlement was variously spelled Nesbet, Nesbitt or Nesbit. Nesbit is near the confluence of the Glen and Till rivers and the hypothesized location of one of King Arthur's battles against invading Anglo-Saxons. Latin documentation dating to 1242 lists "Dodington cum Nesebit membro suo" as among the holdings of Baron William de Vesci. In 1346, Edward III granted land at Nesbit to Thomas Grey of Heaton after the rebellion of the previous holder, John de Trollope. Documents note the existence in 1415 of a defensive tower at Nesbit belonging to Sir Thomas Grey. However, in a 1541 survey it was observed that: During the 19th century, the township was productive farmland supporting a small community of workers. An 1855 survey of Northumberland reports as follows. Today, Nesbit is the site of a sheep farm with no visible trace of the medieval tower or village.
