When you say your George Hood was buried by the Quakers but "not in membership" are you certain he wasn't baptised a Quaker and that's why you can't find him.

I have come across several instances of people baptised as Quakers, marrying a non-Quaker, baptising children as Quakers with a note saying "not in unity" then being buried by Quakers "not in membership".  Marrying a non-Quaker may also be a reason for him not being accepted in 1836.  Just a thought as I've been following your very interesting thread.

There were some Arsons in the Hawnby/Bilsdale area, not far from Kirkdale, from at least early 1500's.

There are various spellings Arson/Areson/Ayreson etc

Some of the trees on Ancestry are hilarious in their absurdity.  I've no idea why people would waste their time typing in such rubbish on a public website.  Obviously name collectors who have never actually researched the people in their tree.

I have almost 60,000 in my tree but each person is sourced before they go in.  Having most of my ancestors from North Yorkshire has been very useful as the Dade records from the 1770's - 1812ish have been invaluable

Thank you very much for the further burial entries, which are very much appreciated.  Again these were the people I was looking for so your help in finding them has been great.  I will do as you recommend and look at Family Search.  They were from Yorkshire so it was a surprise to find them buried in Durham

Thank you

Thank you so much for the burials, it is very much appreciated.  They are the ones I was looking for.  Thank you for offering to look for any Stocktons.

If anyone has access to the monumental inscriptions in Blackhill Cemetary, Consett I would be very grateful for any information there may be on the names Bulmer and Stockton

Many thanks

I just checked and I joined Rootschat in 2004.  It is by far by favourite website.  I look forward to sitting down at the end of the day with a cuppa and reading the posts, helping where I can and learning such a lot from the experts.

David Fletcher's father George shown 1851 in Hovingham with his birth recorded as Snarlesworth.  This I believe is a corruption of Snilesworth near Hawnby and his baptism record:

Bapt 19/10/1775 Hawnby, Yorkshire Geo s/o Geo Fletcher Snilesworth
