A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Ross from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "ROSS, a township in Belford parish, Northumberland; on the coast, 3¼ miles N N E of Belford. Acres: 3,598; of which 2,098 are water. Population: 64. Houses: 10."
GENUKI's list of registration districts states that it was a detached portion of County Durham transferred to Northumberland in 1844.
Ross was a township in the ancient parish of Belford. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Belford Rural District. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and the area was absorbed into the parish of Middleton.
