Updated 2,396 baptisms at Monk Hesleden St. John in Easington district, adding the previously-omitted abodes, birth dates, and fathers’ occupations. We also added 10 baptisms to finish out 1930 – these were not available when we first did this transcription years ago.
Sample baptism before the update:
- 1 Apr 1888 Elizabeth Clayton, child of Charles & Sarah Clayton
and after the update:
- 1 Apr 1888 Elizabeth Clayton, of Castle Eden Colliery, born 5 Mar 1888, child of Charles (grocer) & Sarah Clayton
