WE don't know where this stone is, but, and this is a long shot, is it possible that it was once (and still is) on the site of Hebburn Hall. The Hall dated to the 14th century and was rebuilt in the mid 1600's. |
Long before the Manor of Hebburn was subsumed by the conurbation of Newcastle upon Tyne, the estate was acquired by the Ellisons, a family of merchant adventurers of Newcastle. Robert Ellison, Sheriff and Member of Parliament for Newcastle, replaced the 14th-century Tower house with a new manor house in the mid 17th century and again in the late 1700's .
This is from Wiki:-
His descendant Henry Ellison ( who was High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1734) rebuilt the property in a somewhat grander style in 1790, creating, it is said with the assistance of architect William Newton, a three-storey, nine-bay mansion house. Improvements were made about 1819 by architect John Dobson.
