A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Choppington from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
Choppington was originally a township in Bedlington parish. The whole of Bedlington parish was in County Durham until 1844 when it came under the control of Northumberland county which previously governed all of the surrounding area. Choppington did not become a civil parish, but remained a part of the civil parish of Bedlington.
