The terraced houses of Blayney Row were built for the employees of Heddon brickworks by Bates of Heddon Hall in 1889 and sold to the Throckley Coal Company in 1895.

Cadwallader John Bates(18531902), was a notable antiquarian who inherited Heddon Hall, Colliery and Brick Works from his father Thomas Bates LinkExternal link
The Bates family had been established in Northumberland since the fourteenth century, but their connection with the Blayneys of Gregynog, Montgomeryshire, introduced a strain of Celtic blood, and Cadwallader himself was named after a cousin, the twelfth and last Lord Blayney (d. 1874).

This was the connection used by Cadwallader John Bates in his naming of Blayney Row.
