Durham Records Online additions

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

Bishopton baptisms, marriages, burials 1649-1851
A nice package of records from Bishopton in Stockton district:
2,236 baptisms covering 1649-1851
1,531 burials covering 1654-1851
377 marriages covering 1653-1751, 1783-1812, and 1838-1851. We already had the 1813-1837 marriages online. Unfortunately the marriage register covering 1752-1783 did not survive.

3,581 baptisms and 3,375 burials at Barnard Castle St. Mary in Teesdale district, covering 1762-1797, from a combination of the Bishop's Transcript and the parish register. We now have Barnard Castle baptisms and burials from 1762 through the end of 1846.

Penshaw baptisms & burials 1837-1840
415 baptisms and 263 burials at Penshaw All Saints in Houghton-le-Spring district, covering 1837-1840.

My wife Claire is planning to swim from the Scottish island of Cumbrae to the town of Largs on September 14th to raise money for local charity Gillian's Saltire Appeal, providing respite for families affected by cancer (Claire's mum and sister in Ireland have previously come through cancer, whilst my mum, based in England, currently has bladder cancer). Her Just Giving sponsorship page, with further details, is at http://www.justgiving.com/Claire-Paton1. If you can help to sponsor her, even by a wee amount, we'd be very grateful - many thanks!
