Seaham Harbour St. Mary Magdalene baptisms 1859-1868 updated

Updated 496 baptisms covering 1859-1868 at Seaham Harbour St. Mary Magdalene Roman Catholic church in Easington district, adding the previously-omitted birth dates, godparents, and abodes (which started appearing at the end of 1862). We also added 3 baptisms that got missed the first time, and we returned all the names to the Latin form found in the register and corrected several minor spelling errors.

Sample baptism before the update:

  • 15 Dec 1863 Mary Ann McGovern, daughter of Michael McGovern & Elizabeth nee Donnigan

and after the update:

  • 15 Dec 1863 Maria Anna McGovrin, of Seaton Colliery, born 4 Dec 1863, daughter of Michaelis McGovrin & Elizabethae olim Donnigan
    Godparents or Sponsors: Terentius Quinn; Birgitta Brouen
