From 1663 to the end of 1812:
- 3,538 baptisms
- 1,116 marriages
- 2,433 burials
The baptisms from 1798 to the end of 1812 contain the mothers’ maiden name and both parents’ nativity (birthplaces). Also in this period, the burials of children usually include the mother’s maiden name and burials of married women usually give her maiden name. This Northumberland parish shares a border with the parish of Edmundbyers in County Durham, and there was lots of family movement back and forth between these two and other adjacent parishes.
