|Yvonne||John Milburn, St John's Chapel|
I found your entry for John Milburn, buried June 1781 at St Johnís Chapel, Durham.
Your note says that his father was Joseph Milburn of West Law.
Maybe you can clarify something for me: I have been searching for a death/burial record for my direct ancestor, John Milburn who married Mary Archer in Wolsingham, Durham in 1739. Other researchers have attributed the June 1781 burial date to him but the John Milburn I am seeking was born/baptised to Thomas Milburn and Margaret Stephenson at Stanhope, Durham on 17 Nov 1715. This suggests that the churchyard burial you have recorded is not the same John Milburn. May I ask how certain you are that John of St Johnís father was a Joseph? Was it on the headstone or transcription?

I have just come back from a trip to St John's Chapel in County Durham and found an indexed list of MI transcriptions inside the church but the people I was looking for weren't listed. As you have posted their details on here can I ask if you took the details from headstones or from the burial records of the church please? It's just that if they were from the headstones I am going to have to book another holiday there and make a thorough search for the graves.

Thank you for the quick response. Is this area still a lead mining business? Most all of the Hewitson's buried there were involved in lead mining.

I have about 4 citations on John Hewitson, my 4th great grand father, of living his entire life in Middle Black Dean, County Durham. Does this place still exist or was it renamed? Rod Hewitson

Thanks Just had a look ! It is indeed! It sounded like the church as lots of cemeteries are under the church's name. Great. Near Weardale. I saw lots of Golightly in that cemetery so it rather pricked my curiosity!Unfortunately it is rather a long distance from my golightly lines!
Thanks for clarifying,.

Hi Linda, Do you happen to know which parish this chapel is? County Durham is rather large! Thanks
|Lynda Shaughnessy||RE: Allisons et al|
Yes, you only have to read the Graham letters on the Killhope website to get some idea. Well worth reading.
Many thanks for your help.
