- 23 Apr 1876 Henry Walton of High Dyke, born 29-Nov 1874, child of Isaac (quarryman) & Margaret Walton
- 1 Sep 1901 John William Inglesant of 18 Market Place, Middleton, child of Herbert Inglesant (sett maker) & Sarah Jane Inglesant
After the last baptism, I had to go find out what a sett maker was – essentially, Herbert would have cut and dressed small stones for use in paving, working in one of the several quarries in the area. This article is about Dartmoor, but the process of sett making was probably similar in County Durham.
