Haltwhistle Holy Cross Baptism Register - Click for bigger imageThis entry, extracted from the Haltwhislte parish baptism register 1798 - 1812, refers to Job Henderson born 23rd January 1806 and baptised 20th May 1806. He was the son of John Henderson, who was a Farmer by profession and was a native of Newbrough. John's wife was recorded as Mary Hunter. When a person is baptised an entry is made in the baptism register. Of particular interest are the baptism registers for the period 1798-1812. These are known as Bishop Barrington registers. Shute Barrington, Bishop of Durham, ordered that additional information should be recorded in the registers, for example, details about the parents and sometimes grandparents of the child being baptised. The baptism registers of Haltwhistle parish are deposited with Northumberland Archives Service.
