Note

Daughter of Mr. Henry Blackett. According to Durham Records Online, the record is in a block of 15 entries labelled "births", entered in the parish register in the middle of 1724, even though the birth dates extend to 1740. This may mean the families were non-conformist. The marriage bond of Nicholas Clark shows wife as Margaret Blackett. However, Robert Surtees, in a letter to the College of Arms states that Catherine Blackett married Nicholas Clarke, and that in 1787 Nicholas and Catherine Clarke signed as lawful heirs of her great-grandfather Henry Blackett on the sale of Helmington. Catherine is named in the baptism of their seven children.
