A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Greenleighton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "GREENLEIGHTON, a township in Hartburn parish, Northumberland; 6¼ miles SSW of Rothbury. It is noted for its fine green hill, and its excellent limestone; and it has an oval camp, encompassed by a fosse. Acres: 1,572. Population: 29. Houses: 4."
Greenleighton was originally a township in the ancient parish of Hartburn, Northumberland. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Rothbury Rural District. It became a separate civil parish in 1866, but in 1955 it was abolished and absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Hollinghill.
