Bamburgh parish records of baptisms for 1768 show this hamlet with the name of Gloweroerum
The name comes from olde english to 'Glower 'eor them' or to look over them. This is believed to be due to the fact that there was an old Roman fort on the site of the Farm that looked over Bamburgh Castle whilst it was seat to the king of Northumberland
Prior to re-development in 2010-2012 there were substantial farm buildings on the crossroads. Although the farm buildings have now been converted into luxury "Barn conversion" type residences including detached and terrace cottages and larger terraced houses, Glororum is still a working farm run by the Dryden family since 1883.
To the north-east of the hamlet there is a large holiday park comprising mainly large static caravans. The caravan Park was established in 1953 with 10 caravans and has grown over the years has grown to the size it is now.
