Durham Records Online update

New records from Durham Records Online (www.durhamrecordsonline.com):

Durham Primitive Methodist Circuit baptisms 1856-1879
5,362 baptisms on the Durham Primitive Methodist Circuit from Feb 1856 to August 1879. We now have a complete set of baptisms on this circuit from the first register in 1841 to 1960 – almost 120 years of Primitive Methodist baptisms in the area surrounding the city of Durham.

West Hartlepool St. Oswald baptisms & marriages 1895-1932
At West Hartlepool St. Oswald:
4,194 baptisms from the beginning of the first register of this church in March 1892 to mid-Sept 1931
849 marriages from the first marriage at this church in 1904 to the end of August 1932
The parish of St. Oswald's was carved out of the parish of Christ Church, first as a chapelry in 1892 and then as its own parish in 1904. Marriages were not performed there until 1904.

West Hartlepool St. Aidan baptisms 1890-1905, marriages 1891-1909
1,591 baptisms and 500 marriages at West Hartlepool St. Aidan, which was carved out of the parishes of Seaton Carew Holy Trinity and Stranton All Saints in late 1890. These records are from the first baptism and marriage register; the baptisms run from Oct 1890 to June 1905, and the marriages run from April 1891 to Sept 1909.

Earsdon baptisms & burials 1762-1772
963 baptisms and 745 burials at Earsdon St. Alban in Tynemouth district, Northumberland, covering 1762-1772, from a combination of the Bishop's Transcript and the parish register.

Houghton-le-Spring marriage witnesses 1830-1837
Added 1,162 witnesses to our existing 566 marriages at Houghton-le-Spring St. Michael & All Angels for 1830-1837, and corrected some errors, mostly minor spelling adjustments. If you have purchased a marriage at Houghton-le-Spring in this period, we recommend you take another look at it to see if anything has been changed, and to get the witnesses. You can review your purchased records by logging into Durham Records Online and clicking My Account, then click the My Orders tab. If you purchased a record in which a significant error has been corrected, such as a change in name or date, the corrected record has been emailed to you.

Middleton-in-Teesdale marriage witnesses added 1817-1851
Added 2,250 witnesses to our existing 914 marriages spanning 1817-1851 at Middleton-in-Teesdale St. Mary the Virgin, and added one marriage we had missed the first time. Abodes were added where they had been missing and minor corrections were made. If you have purchased a marriage at Middleton-in-Teesdale in this period, we recommend you take another look at it to see if anything has been added or changed, and to get the witnesses. You can review your purchased records by logging into Durham Records Online and clicking My Account, then the My Orders tab. If you purchased a record in which a significant error has been corrected, such as a change in name or date, the corrected record has been emailed to you.
All of the marriages after mid-1837 are fully-detailed civil-registration-era marriages, at a price far lower than what you would pay at a registry office…

South Hetton baptisms 1849-1852 updated with occupations, abodes
We have updated 389 baptisms at South Hetton Holy Trinity from 1849 to 1852 inclusive with the abodes and father's occupations, and made a few corrections. If a major change, such as a name change, was made to a record you purchased, an email has already been sent to you with the correction. Otherwise, if you have purchased a baptism at this church in this period, you should review it to get the father's occupation and abode. Log in, click My Account, then click the My Orders tab to see your purchases.
