Seaham Harbour Methodist marriages updated

Updated 462 marriages at the following Methodist churches in and around Seaham Harbour, adding occupations, ages, abodes, marital status, and witnesses:

  • Seaham Harbour (Centenary) Methodist Church, Stewart Street, 1954-1968
  • Seaham Harbour United Methodist Church, Church Street, 1950-1968
  • Seaham Harbour, Primitive Methodist Chapel, Tempest Place, 1912-1933
  • Seaham Harbour, Bourne Methodist Church, Tempest Place, 1933-1960
  • Cold Hesledon (Stockton Street) Methodist Church, 1946-1971

The next two churches did not record ages, occupations, or marital status, so we could only add abodes and witnesses:

  • Caroline Street Independent Methodist Church, 1939-1966
  • New Seaham, Stanley Street Independent Methodist Church, 1968-1999, plus we added 14 marriages to bring this collection up to the end of 2013. Many of these marriages name the mothers (in addition to the fathers) of the bride and groom

Added 10 marriages between 1919 and 2007 at New Seaham, Enfield Road Independent Methodist Church, and corrected some minor errors. Unfortunately this church recorded only the date and names of the parties who were married, so we couldn’t do any updating as we did with the other churches above.
