Memories of Butterknowle

Emerson House, Bishop Auckland

This is not my memory but a place where my partner's grandmother and/or mother were, I believe, living at one time, which could have been in the late 40's early 50's. The name of the building was Emerson House, Butterknowle and I wonder if anyone has any knowledge of this place please? It was quite a large building - could have been a smallholding perhaps. Their surname was Morgan.
