I am researching the Scott's in Bishopwearmouth, Sunderland, and in Earsdon, North Shields, Northumberland. I have a copy of my family tree back to the late 1600's in Northumberland and I am trying to connect it it to my family in Sunderland. Unhappily, there is little information on the websites that I have examined. I cannot visit the parish churches etc. because I am now living in San Diego, California.
So let's take it one step at a time... Can anyone help me find more information about a William Scott born about 1739 in Bishopwearmouth? Possible wife Jane. Child William Scott (b. 1781) and Jane Davison (b. 1783) from Rothbury (documented).
