Baptism 22 Sept. 1736 Darlington, Durham
« on: Wednesday 28 February 18 08:29 GMT (UK) »
Hello

Margaret Bell baptised 22 Sept. 1736 St Cuthberts, Darlington, Durham.

Can anyone confirm that a Robert Bell was also baptised on the 22nd Sept. 1736 at St Cuthberts, Darlington, Durham which would possibly make Margaret and Robert Bell twins?
Any help would be really appreciated.

I must have been a month out.  Many thanks.
Curious as to whether he had any siblings.

What I find strange is that those records have been taken from different films. You really need to see the original register

I didn't pick that up, so many thanks.
Will want to look at original registers.
Both have the same father's name as Richard so am supposing they are brother and sister. But will certainly want to check this out.

I suspect that one of the dates is wrong, too much of a coincidence that they are both on the 22nd.  I have seen an instance where one child is baptised one week and another a couple of weeks later I could almost imagine it being too much like hard work to take them there both at once  ;D

If you search using the film number then both of these christenings turn up in film 1514534, which according to the catalogue was indexed from the Parish Registers for St Cuthbert's Darlington.

Thanks Tickettyboo, 

I had tried doing that in case I could get both baptisms up together but it did not work.  Sadly nowadays familysearch sometimes fails to deliver the same information at different attempts to search.  I still wonder if one of those records is wrongly transcribed
