Updated 3,206 baptisms spanning 1867-1934 at Haswell St. Paul in Easington district, with abodes, birth dates (present in about 1/3 of these), and the occupations of the fathers and single mothers. We also added 3 baptisms we’d missed, and 27 baptisms in 1934 to finish out the year – these were not available when we first did this transcription many years ago.
Sample baptisms before the update:
- 31 Dec 1890 Hilda Smith, child of Charles Smith & Emma Jane Smith
- 15 Sep 1918 Muriel Elizabeth Smith, child of Michael & Bertha Smith
and the same baptisms after the update:
- 31 Dec 1890 Hilda Smith, of Haswell, born 8 Dec 1890, child of Charles Smith (dealer in musical instruments) & Emma Jane Smith
- 15 Sep 1918 Muriel Elizabeth Smith, of 14 Pesspool Terrace, Haswell, born 16 Aug 1918, child of Michael (foreman at Tuthill Limestone Quarry) & Bertha Smith
