Woodhorn - anyone going with free time?
« on: Sunday 15 October 17 12:01 BST (UK) »
Hi
I just wondered if anyone who lives near Woodhorn was going and felt like doing a look up for Rothbury post Bishops transcripts? I've been through all online which cover up to 1831, so I am interested in post 1831 up to 1837 or 1840.
I'm interested in children born to William and Martha Scott living by then at Flotterton. I've got 7 children up to that date which is great.
I'm also interested in
Robert Scott b 1834- 1836
Luke Scott b 1834
James Graham Scott b c 1838
Edward William Scott b c 1840 - mum's not named on possible GRO birth entry so its a long shot that he was baptised. I haven't bought the birth cert as mum wasn't shown so far but I may have to - even with the GRO trial.
The last 3 show on census's as William 's grandchildren so I'm trying to find out their parents.
All these grandchildren consistently say they were born at Flotterton.
I have the censuses thanks.
Thanks for reading.

I'm normally there every week but, as I've said once before on here, I've just had a new hip and I'm not driving yet - plus the walk from the carpark to the search room is a bit daunting at the moment.

I'm hoping to be back in action by the end of this month so if you still haven't had your look up by then send me a pm to jog my memory and I'll gladly see what I can find.

That's very kind of you , thanks . I'd been hoping I'd be lucky and that the BTs would have just been there for a tad longer years wise as some parishes are, but typically the parish I need stops at 1831.
Hope your new hip is working well and you are pain free .

I don't have BT information but I do have a transcript of Rothbury.  Only names and dates but might be helpful in finding those ones listed. These are closest to the years you mentioned

Robert Scott baptised 18 May 1834 s/o Sarah

Luke Scott baptised 5 Apr 1833 s/o Barbarah (sic)

No James Graham Scott but there is a James baptised 18 Mar 1838 s/o Barbara either Scott or Graham and Richard Scott or Graham.  Both names appear but I don't know which is which.

Edward William Scott--sorry my index transcript only goes to 1839 and nothing on him for 1839

Thank you so much for this Janis!
I suspected Luke , James and Edward belonged to Barbara but couldn't prove it. This suggests at least Luke and James were.
Barbara was a Scott and was still single in 1851 living with her parents so I'll keep looking re the Graham bit.

Re Robert, it's possible his mum was Barbara's sister Sarah so I'll have a hunt on that basis .
They are proving to be an intriguing family!!
Thanks again.

It is not often that a baptismal will have the name of the purported father of the child.
