The constituency was created by the Great Reform Act of 1832 by the splitting of Northumberland constituency into Northern and Southern divisions.
The constituency was abolished by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885, being divided into single member divisions: Berwick-upon-Tweed, Hexham, Tyneside and Wansbeck.
