Whitburn Durham request
« on: Monday 06 April 09 19:29 BST (UK) »
Hello

Does anybody have the parish records for Whitburn, Durham?? I have the ancestry world package and they are not part of the parish collections. IGI lists the people I am interested in but I need a location for the father if one exsists.

I've read that Whitburn records only list the males in the registers but IGI has a name for the mother??

I'm looking for information on William Wilkinson given wife on IGI is Isabella.  I'd like to know where William was native of. I know he had a daughter Ann Wilkinson in St Andrews, Newcastle christening 08 Apr 1781. I'd also like to figure out Isabella's surname. There is an Isabella Robinson who married a William Wilkinson at whitburn but the marriage took place after the birth of Ann in Newcastle.

John

Hello John,

The baptism for Ann on IGI only gives father William, not her mother's name

however in the same batch number there is a baptism for a John Wilkinson,
Born 1 Jul 1789      bapt 20 Sep 1789      St Andrew Par Reg And Nonconf, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland  (same place as Ann)
parents William WILKINSON  and Isabella

What makes you think William and Isabella married at Whitburn?

IGI has a possible marriage for the above parents
William WILKINSON  to  Isable THOMPSON    
   2 Feb 1772   Saint Andrew, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland
   

You may be able to find more information on the free site looking through the bishops' transcripts:

Hello Barbara

Thankyou for taking a look.

I have noticed the William Wilkinson and Isabella Thompson marriage before.

I don't know where they were married. I was just pointing out there was a William and Isabella who married in Whitburn. The census proves the relationship between the daughter born Newcastle and her siblings in Whitburn. I don't have the parish registers for St Andrews, Newcastle so I looked through the Bishop transcripts on family search. It wasn't much help because all it has is the date name and daughter of William Wilkinson. It doesn't list her as illegitamate so I assumed the marriage in Witburn would be incorrect. No other details were given apart from William was a Master Mariner.

I will take a look at the entry for John Wilkinson you mention to see if it gives me any more clues. Thankyou. I know the siblings born Whitburn are also part of this family but the Whitburn BT's are not online that I can see? They are not included in the parish records on ancestry either. I posted on thinking somebody might have a CD or book on Whitburn that would maybe provide me with the clues of William's birth place.

Thankyou again. I will take a look at the link you have provided.

John

Hello Barbara,

Thats the same family search pilot website I have been using for viewing the BT's. It's a great website but it doesn't list Whitburn and the parish records for St Andrews, Newcastle in the BT's are not very informative.

Hi Stan,

I think that will be the marriage John was referring to

Thanks Stan

I was wondering if anybody has laid eyes on the parish records of Whitburn before? I notice there are CD's and books for sale online. Will the parish records of Whitburn give location information of parents?? O.T.P or native of/address?

I'd hate to purchase these books and CD's if they only have the same information as IGI and the BT's online.

durhamrecordsonline has  St. Mary's, Whitburn marriages 1813 - 1837 - too late for you I'm afraid.

Durham records office has the parish registers:
