As many of our customers are aware, our earliest transcriptions of Easington district baptisms were done without including the abode or father’s occupation, and the marriages lack witnesses. Obviously this information can be important, and when we get a few minutes of spare time, we add that missing information. We have just updated the baptisms at Dalton-le-Dale for 1813-1832 with the missing abodes and father’s occupations and corrected a few minor errors, and we have added the witnesses to the marriages for 1813-1838. If you previously purchased a baptism or marriage at Dalton-le-Dale in this period, you can see the additional information by clicking My Previous Orders and reviewing the baptism or marriage.
Here is a sample baptism before the update:
- 13 Feb 1820 William Procter, son of Richard & Elizabeth Procter
and after the update:
- 13 Feb 1820 William Procter, of Dalton Moor House, son of Richard (farmer) & Elizabeth Procter
Here is a sample marriage with witnesses:
- 12 Apr 1818 John Rickaby, of the parish of Easington married Judith Storey, of this parish, by licence
Witnesses: Elizabeth Rickaby, Miles Storey, William Bulman
