Isaac Blackett was born about 1590 and died 4 May 1642 in Tynemouth, Northumberland. His burial record states that he was of Chirton, Northumberland, but the only baptismal record of an Isaac Blackett around that time that we have found is that of Isaac baptised 25 July 1598 in Pittington, Co. Durham. Although this tree can now be connected to the main Blackett tree through the marriage of a descendant, no other connection has been found between Isaac of Chirton and Pittington around this period. Several generations of Isaac’s descendants lived in Tynemouth and neighbouring Longbenton and Newcastle-upon-Tyne and several generations later some descendants did move south of the River Tyne into Co. Durham. See also Blacketts of Stockton-on-Tees below.
