Following the Norman Conquest the town came into the possession of the de Merlay family, and a motte and bailey castle had been constructed by 1095. Newminster Abbey was founded by Ranulf de Merlay, lord of Morpeth, and his wife, Juliana, daughter of Gospatric II, Earl of Lothian, as one of the first daughter houses of Fountains in 1138.
The town became a borough by prescription. King John granted a market charter for the town to Roger de Merlay in 1199.The market is still held on Wednesdays. Morpeth Castle was built in the fourteenth century by Ranulph de Merlay on the site of an earlier fortress: only the gatehouse and parts of the ruined castle walls remain.
Morpeth was described, in 1540, by the royal antiquary John Leland, as “long and metely well-builded, with low houses,” and as “a far fairer town than Alnwick.” During the 1543-50 war of the Rough Wooing, life in Morpeth was disturbed by a garrison of Italian mercenaries, who ‘pestered such a little street standing in the highway’ by killing deer and withholding payment for food.
In 1552, William Hervey, Norroy King of Arms granted the borough of Morpeth a coat of arms. The arms were identical to those of Roger de Merlay, with the addition of a gold tower. In the letters patent, Hervey noted that he had included the arms of the “noble and valyaunt knyght”… “for a p’petuall memory of his good will and benevolence towardes the said towne “.
Until the nineteenth century Morpeth had one of the main markets in northern England for live cattle. The opening of the railways made transport to Newcastle easier, and the market accordingly declined.
In the Second World War, Royal Air Force Morpeth opened at nearby Tranwell and was a notable air gunnery training school.
