The Reeds of Northumberland were originally centered around the chief Reed residence at Troughend in Redesdale, on the banks of the River Rede. These Reeds of Troughend were a very ancient family, as may be conjectured from their deriving their surname from the river on which they had their mansion. An epitaph on one of their tombs affirms that the family have held their lands of Troughend, which are situated on the Reed nearly opposite to Otterburn, for the incredible space of nine hundred years.
