The Parish Registers for the period 1571-1979 are deposited at Durham County Record Office, County Hall, Durham, DH1 5UL (EP/Du.MB).

Durham University Library Archives and Special Collections DDR/EA/PBT/2/84 1762-1841 Parish Register transcripts are available to search free online at FamilySearch Historical Records. There are gaps in the transcripts in the early decades until the late 1790's.

There is an additional series DDR/EA/PBT/2/85 from 1787-1793 which has page sequence PBT/2/85/1-6 but is titled for the years 1787-1838 and for the parish of St Mary the Less.

The dates of the post-1760 transcripts have been noted in detail and sometimes only cover years. For most parishes in the collection there are gaps in the sequence of transcripts. It is advisable to consult the original parish registers for these years and events.
