Rothbury All Saints Baptism Register - Click for bigger imageThis entry, extracted from the Rothbury parish baptism register 1777 - 1812, refers to Sarah Brown baptised 17th January 1778. She was the daughter of James Brown and Mary Brown his wife. James's profession was recorded as Surgeon. 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 Rothbury parish are deposited with Northumberland Archives Service.
