Dear Sandie,
I've had a look at the FreeBMD site and there is no Mary Owens born in
Sunderland in 1837 online yet, though she could still be waiting to be
Don't forget that if she was born in the first half of 1837 she won't
appear in the GRO indexes at all, as civil registration didn't start
till the third quarter of that year.
You may have to start searching parish registers on microfilm. Mary
Owens is a Welsh sounding name, so you might start with non-conformist

I know what you mean about the 1841 census pencil problem. I was
heartbroken, as I have a real problem ancestor who could have been
anywhere by 1851, but there was a good chance that he was in Sunderland
in 1841.
Good luck,

Hi Keith and fellow listers,
I just heard back from the Sunderland Registrar. They were unable to
find the birth of my Mary Owens (1837-9) father William (based on 1881
census info for Middlesborough) in Sunderland and they
suggested the St.
Catharines Index. I've tried locating the family on the 1841
census but
it is largely unreadable. Does anyone have access to an 1851 census
index who could look up a William Owens family in Sunderland? Also are
the St Catharine's index's the English vital statistics . How do I
access? I live in Nova Scotia
