Re: carr ellison family They're here john
I believe people in Hebburn were invited to buy their leasehold from the Carr Ellison estate in the 1960ís and someone I knew said it was not expensive. Itís just a memory I have , but I cannot remember how much they paid. At the time I believe the estate wanted to get rid of the leaseholds. I was very surprised to read some builders in recent years have bought this leasehold yearly charge back. I know flats/apartments are leasehold, but it is just greedy to bring back leasehold or ground rent as it used to be called on houses.
