Bolam Vicarage was a township in the ancient parish of Bolam and became a separate civil parish in 1866. The civil parish was abolished and the area absorbed into Belsay in 1955.

A Vision of Britain through Time does not offer a gazetteer article and Wikipedia does not mention it either. It covered a small area to the east of Bolam parish.
