This entry, extracted from the Stamfordham parish baptism register 1662 - 1695, refers to William Dod baptised 19th October 1680. William was the son of James Dod of Stamfordham.
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 Stamfordham parish are deposited with Northumberland Archives Service.
