Seaham Harbour Primitive Methodist Circuit baptisms 1889-1948 updated

Added the child’s birth date, abode, and father’s occupation to 1,224 baptisms from the Seaham Harbour Primitive Methodist Circuit in Easington district, spanning Sept 1889 to July 1948. Also added 4 new baptisms that we missed the first time around. This circuit was called just Seaham Harbour Methodist Circuit for 1941-1948 and includes New Seaham Primitive Methodist circuit baptisms for 1919-1932.

Sample baptism before the update:

  • 17 Oct 1889 John George Akenhead, child of Robert & Georgina Akenhead

and after the update:

  • 17 Oct 1889 John George Akenhead, of 21 William St., born 3 Oct 1889, child of Robert (blacksmith) & Georgina Akenhead

If you have purchased a baptism on this circuit, we encourage you to review it to get the new information and see if any changes were made. Log in, click My Account, then click the My Orders tab to see your purchases. Remember, you can now sort the Orders table by a record’s modification date, so it’s easy to see any records that have changed when they sort to the top of the table. If a change (other than a minor spelling change) was made to a record you purchased, an email has already been sent to you with the correction.

This is part of our mission to update our Easington-district records that are missing information.
