Lesbury St. Mary's Baptism Register - Click for bigger imageThis entry, extracted from the Lesbury St. Mary parish baptism register 1690 - 1718, refers to Jospeh son of John Raynor of Alemouth baptised 1st September 1715. 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 Lesbury parish are deposited with Northumberland Archives Service.
