SKELTON IN CLEVELAND: Skelton in Cleveland, Boosbeck Chapelry St. Mary's PRs 1908-1909


Baptisms and Burials for St. Mary's, Boosbeck, 1908-1909

A friend has kindly loaned me a copy of this book. I remember my grandmother having a large collection of them and having asked her for them when I was a teenager when she died (nothing so blunt as a kid). However, we moved to NZ long before this sad event happened and I was overjoyed to see this copy lately. During the next few weeks I will print out some of the lists of bapt. marr. and burials. Not only is Skelton included but also St. Aidan's, Boosbeck with Moorsholm. It was interesting to note illigitimate children don't seem to be included - obviously not a topic for celebration. However, some parents seem to have differentnames, whether they are unmarried or using family names as second namesor the priest if including maiden names, I cannot tell but I will type surnames they are writ (not as capitals which I do prefer). The book starts Nov. 1908 (which seems odd to me but there you are).

I can't give any information on any of these are I am totally ignorant and please remember there is nothing like the original parish records. I was particularly delighted to see some strays and residences (at least the street) mentioned.

Hope some of you find something. Kind regards to all. Macha in NZ Macha in NZ
