My guess, and it's only a guess, the the house referred to may have been either Jarrow Wood House or Cockcrow. In their day, they were the only large houses on the 1859 map set close together with nothing to spoil a view of the river. They were also set between the A and C pits and eventually fell victim of the Palmers (Hebburn) yard. The remains of Jarrow Wood House can still be seen on a 1936 aerial photo (Britain from Above). I have a blow up of that which I will dig out and post to the board.
There is no trace of a quay or wharf adjacent to these buildings but it is interesting that they are part of what might have been known as Hebburn Quay, even in those days.
