Birth or baptism of Mary Ann Bell


Active member
I'm requesting more help please. This time the birth or baptism details of Mary Ann Bell born in 1844/45 Lanchester, Durham. At the age of 18 became the wife of John Stobs. From their marriage record in St. James, Durham it states that John Bell was her father. I can see no reference to his occupation. I'd like to know more about her parents and siblings.

Thank you for the help you're giving me.
I can find no baptism, but there maybe a result in the 1851 Census...............................
