Parochial Survey Whickham Parish, Durham 1835 - look ups offered
« on: Sunday 08 September 13 13:22 BST (UK) »
The original document is held at Durham Records Office. Ref: EP/Whm 29 and copies of pages can be obtained either at the Record Office in person or they have a copy order facility where they will post the copies to you (details on their website)

Description:  Parochial survey giving names of parishioners, their occupations, denominations, education, place of marriage, size of family, etc. prepared by W. Gould, curate, 1835

It is in a ledger type format - two sides to each page, divided into columns. There are 49 pages and I have transcribed them all. Am happy to do look ups for particular names if anyone is interested.

Please post any requests on the Durham Lookup Requests Board

This is an example to give you an idea of the information included

Re: Parochial Survey Whickham Parish, Durham 1835 - UPDATED FILE

I have found that when I last altered the file and converted it, the wonders of modern technology corrupted the file so that some of the info was on the wrong lines, making it seem that some ladies had, as the other person in the house, a wife - oops!
Have amended it and replaced the file.
Many apologies , but if anyone took info from this file, re-check to make sure it was correct.
