Methodist baptism updates at Trimdon Grange, Wingate

Updated 1,083 baptisms on the Wingate Wesleyan Methodist Circuit in Easington district from 1873 to 1896 and Sep 1909 to 1940, adding birth dates and street addresses. From 1909 to 1940, this circuit was also known as the East Durham Wesleyan Methodist Circuit – Wingate Section.┬áThere are no baptisms in the register between Dec 1896 and Sept 1909.

Sample before the update:

  • 16 Jul 1912 William Ramsey Wylie, of Shotton Colliery, son of Frederick & Jane Wylie

and after the update:

  • 16 Jul 1912 William Ramsey Wylie, of 20 Doctors Row, Shotton Colliery, born 5 Jul 1912, son of Frederick & Jane Wylie

While doing this work, we discovered that 76 baptisms at the Trimdon Grange Wesleyan Methodist Chapel had been mis-classified as Wingate WM circuit (because they were on the same film). Those have now been renamed and moved to Stockton district, and purchasers of those baptisms have been notified. We also found one additional baptism that had been omitted.
