Documentary Evidence


Laygate House is shown on Brigham and Cowan's map of 1827 with a formal garden. The house was bought in the early 19th century by the Stevenson family from Glasgow. The patriarch of the family had become a partner in the Jarrow and South Shields Chemical Works. Laygate House was probably demolished shortly after c.1856 due to the planned re-development of the area for Tyneside Flats to house the growing influx of workers, and the family moved to Westoe village.
