1/34 Two lead water tanks on
terrace west of Newby


2 tanks. Late C17 - early C18 for Sir Edward Blackett. Lead.
Approximately 60 centimetres high and 1.2 metres long. The sides and ends
are decorated with armorial motifs in relief. The shields on the ends have
the Blackett arms: a chevron between 3 mullets, 3 escallops in the field.
They were probably used originally to collect rain water from the roof of
the house. Sir William Blackett (d1680) was a very eminent and successful
merchant who was sheriff and later MP for Newcastle. He owned large estates
and coal mines in Northumberland and in his will he left to his eldest
surviving son, Edward, the money to buy an estate of £500 in Northumberland,
Durham or Yorkshire, as well as shares in manors and collieries in
Northumberland. The estate bought was probably Newby, from Sir Jordan
Crossland in 1689.
