A survey of 1541 states that the township of Yerdle contains a 'bastell house without a barmekyn' and is the inheritance of Thomas Hebburn and Gilbert Scott (Bates 1891).
Dacre's map of 1584 shows this tower (this map, reproduced in Bates, has insufficient information for even approximate siting).
In the 17th century the Hebburn's lands were at South Earle and the Scott's at North Earle. The present (1935) houses at these places are of the early 19th century (Dodds 1935).
The present buildings at North Earle and South Earle show no traces of antiquity, and there is no local tradition of a tower (F1 EG 29-SEP-1955). (Northumberland HER)
