What years are you looking for in Bedlington? According to the Hugh Wallis site the IGI covers baptisms 1643 to 1812 and marriages from 1653 to 1812. Whether it has been updated since I am not sure.

Hi Evie,
  thats useful, I didn't know how to search for marriages in that catalogue.  I found all the christenings for Gofton and there seem to be two sets of parents.  Thomas Gofton and Mary Davison and Ralph Gofton and Frances ???
  I wanted to see if the marriage records were there for either couple or if there were earlier christening records for Thomas or Ralph.  Unfortunately not.
  Back to the drawing board.

On that link I gave you I saw a marriage for Ralph Gofton and Frances Potts 27 April 1760, Bedlington. Is that not the one you are after?

Hi Paul,

Bedlington is missing from the Family Search site. I assume that either the Bishop's Transcripts haven't been added or that they haven't survived at all. You would need to look through the original register on film at the archives.

erm... yes, thanks

There was also a John Gofton married a couple of years later.  I have my ggggfather as Thomas Gofton who had some children in that parish at the same time and one was also called Ralph

This is what I have as his wedding details
Mary Davison -  ‎17 May 1752 Bolam, Northumberland, England

Do you know where Bolam is?
I have this http://www.genuki.bpears.org.uk/NBL/Bolam/
but how do I find the link that you posted to Bolam?

Evie,
  sorry I saw Bolam further down that page.  I have found Thomas Gofton's marriage again to Mary Davison.  Must have been her parish.
Thanks

Paul,

  A little historical quirk !

 Bedlington ( the parish of) was County Durham, not Northumberland.
(So too were parishes in the north ie Twqeedmouth, Norham etc).

Until 1844 when these "enclaves" reverted back to County of Northumberland.

Browsing around the "Newcastle Courant" there are mentions of Gofton folk in Newburn Parish and in Gosforth Parish.  And of a place called Gofton in area of Bellingham and Wark Parishes.

I will pass some Deaths info to you from the " Courant", but only when you request it... you might be close to info overload ?


 The man I saw was Charles Gofton Young _ wasn't there a Young in the Thompson/Gofton household on 1891 census in Hillheads Farm ?
