Submitted by alkirtley on Thu, 11/21/2019 - 13:27

In 1786 Frances Blackett was baptised in South Shields, Co. Durham, the daughter of William Blackett and Ann, who had at least two more children baptised in South Shields. Frances married Roger Mould in Bishopwearmouth in 1802 and their descendants remained largely in the South Shields area. We have not identified the William Blackett in question.

The relationship, if any, between that William and John Blackett, who was baptised in neighbouring Heworth in 1742, has not been discovered. John was a son of the second marriage of John Blackett to Margaret Morrow in 1740, and married Mary Mayors in Jarrow in 1775. His descendants settled in South Shields.
