Hello Barry. With your update this morning I agree with all you say and very impressed with your detailed research. The program for superimposing positions between map and Google Earth is spot on. It seems as though the map makers and OS were not getting it right all the time. Both the naming and the ground plans often differ between the various maps and I would agree with you that what is being called Jarrow Wood House on some maps, is being called Cock Crow in others.
When looking at some of the aerial views it seems that Palmers were treating those buildings as if they were standing on hallowed ground and working around them, at least up to WW2.
In the enlarged section of photo shown below (Britain from Above) the main ruin and its surrounding 'outhouses' conforms with the plan view of those structures in the 1912 OS map. However, as you say, it is being named on the map as Cock Crow whereas it had been named in most of the preceding maps as Jarrow Wood House. I don't suppose we will ever quite get to the bottom of it until someone comes up with a Time Machine.
