Baptism entry of Robert Hutchinson, Stanhope area.

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I have found the baptism entry of my 3xg grandfather, Robert Hutchinson.
I found it on in the Bishops Transcripts 1762-1833 at Stanhope, Co Durham – page 407.
Robert was baptised in Stanhope, on 19th June, 1814.

His parents were Hugh and Elizabeth Hutchinson. I can’t make out what their address is, apart from Hope ?, then Parish of Wolsingham.

Please could someone have a look for me, and see if they can decipher it for me.

On a different note, does anyone know if the Rootsweb lists are still down?

Re Rootsweb mailing lists, the simplest thing is best - just to go to the Rootsweb site and click on the Mailing Lists tab. This is the only information it gives, but obviously they're not working yet:

Mailing Lists: Mailing Lists have been functioning as normal, but the archives have been unavailable. We plan to make the archives available to you once we have WorldConnect available to you in a readable version.

We will be making decisions about other functionality over time.

We appreciate your patience as we bring the different pieces of RootsWeb back online in a secure manner. You, our contributors and viewers, are what has made RootsWeb the vibrant free genealogy community it is.
