New additions to Durham Records Online (

Bishopwearmouth baptisms 1821-1828
2,979 baptisms at Bishopwearmouth St. Michael & All Angels in Sunderland district, covering 1821-1828, but also including numerous baptisms that were recorded years after the child’s birth.

Monkwearmouth All Saints baptisms 1847-1874
2,262 baptisms at Monkwearmouth All Saints from the start of the first register in October 1847 to the end of 1874. All Saints parish was created out of Monkwearmouth St. Peter’s in 1847.

Longbenton baptisms 1813-1830, marriages & burials 1813-1829

2,682 baptisms covering 1813-1830
570 marriage covering 1813-1829
1,621 burials covering 1813-1829
These are from the Bishop’s Transcript with some checking against the parish register.

Pre-1753 Hart baptism & burial dates modified
We went through our early baptisms and burials at Hart St. Mary Magdalene, comparing to the register, and, for dates between 1 Jan and 25 Mar in the years 1577 to 1752 inclusive, changed the date, where necessary, to be consistent with today’s dating scheme; that is, changed to the following year.
