Ellison Hall, Hebburn


S Tyneside

Hebburn Hall





Country House

Post Medieval


Extant Building

The Ellison family acquired the manor of North Hebburn in 1658 and South Hebburn in 1777. The big 17th century house was rebuilt in 1790-2, possibly by William Newton and with alterations of 1819 by Dobson for Cuthbert Ellison. Inside is a plaster ceiling, probably by Joseph Rose in 1792. There was a medieval pele tower on the same site, parts of which seem to have been incorporated within the Hall - in November 2001, during restoration work, three stone corbels from the medieval structure were revealed under a suspended ceiling. Used as an auxiliary hospital during the First World War by the Joint War Committee (British Red Cross and the Order of St John of Jerusalem). LISTED GRADE 2
