    House & Family History: Charles I was held prisoner at Anderson Place in 1646. Sir William Blackett, MP for Newcastle (Sir William was also the owner of Wallington, Northumberland), purchased the House in 1675. Anderson Place, which stood in Grey Street, was a victim of Richard Grainger's plan to rebuild Newcastle in the 19th century. The House, which was the largest in the country within a city wall, was demolished in the 1830s.
