I have been the proud owner of this unbeatable historical book in Two Volumes which has been passed down through the family over the past 135 years. It was my great grandfather William P Bartlett who purchased the two volumes in 1880 and had them bound into one volume.I received the book from my uncle J Bartlett in 2001, and whilst I was researching the family tree,I found a few accounts resembling the family written down in several pages which has helped me a great deal. My research has took me from Berwick upon Tweed in Northumberland to Reeth in Yorkshire with this book used as my key agent. Since my great grandfather, the book has been passed down through four generations to my youngest son. So anyone who is interested a near accurate account of the North East & Durham, from Roman to 1864 I can certainly recommend this John Sykes book to anyone.
