Alnwick St. Paul baptisms 1846-1851, marriages 1846-1852

The new parish of St. Paul was carved out of the parish of Alnwick St. Michael, and the new church of St. Paul was consecrated on 16 Oct 1846, with Charles F. Charleton as the first incumbent. Here’s a little package to start this church’s record collection:

  • 244 baptisms covering 1846-1851
  • 52 marriages covering 1846-1852

These marriages are all civil-registration style, with full details, except most of the ages are listed as “full” rather than a number. Here is a sample marriage:

  • 27 Sep 1850 William Shell (bachelor, painter, full age, of Alnwick, son of William Shell, painter) married Georgiana Ann Dixon (spinster, full age, of Alnwick, daughter of Richard Dixon, mason)
    Witnesses: Richard Dixon; Isabella Beal Slight

and the baptism of that couple’s first child:

  • 28 Sep 1851 William Shell, of Bondgate, son of William Shell (painter) & Georgiana Anne Shell

Abodes are mostly streets in Alnwick but also include Alndyke, Cawledge Park, Ducket Croft, Rugley, and Shield dykes.
