He was accused of stealing fittings and goods from the hall after becoming bankrupt and was taken to court by the owner. Later occupants were Michael Spencer (son of John Spencer, steel manufacturer and coalowner of Newburn), the Appleby family and Dr. Telfer. In 1980 the house was sold to developers and split into 2 dwellings (Walbottle Hall and Millstone House). 3 houses were built on the site of the walled garden in the 1970s (Nos. 1-3 Walbottle Hall Gardens). The pebbled drive to the Hall has been moved. The gate piers are not original but they are in-keeping.
