Hi Michelle
I wish you well with your search but as the PRs for Barton St Mary start in 1619 according to Genuki and Phillimores I would have to wonder how the person who entered that on the IGI knew for certain they were born there.
I assume you have the information from the IGI? as a patron submission it would need careful checking.
The entry states :-
About 1560 Barton'S St Mary'S,Yorkshire, , Durham, England
(what the submitter meant by the above is anyone's guess, Yorkshire is a County as is Durham)
About 1632
(no mention of where)
Or do you have a separate source?

Descended from the family of Wilkinson of Harpley & Ferry in the Bishopr
ic of Durham. St. Mary, Yorkshire County. Christopher married Feb. 25, 15

NOTE: There is also another Christopher Wilkinson B: abt 1570 of Darlingto

The majority of information on the Wilkinson/Wilkerson was furnished by Raymond Ray.

Marriage Date: February 25, 1594 to Helen Buck

Hi again
I would suggest going back to Raymond Ray and ask for the actual sources, it looks on the face of it that the IGI entries are based on guesswork
For example if the PRs for St Marys at Barton Yorkshire start in 1619, where was the marriage recorded?
