    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. No John Walton found in Warden Parish christening records.

      2. John was the witness in the following marriage ceremony per FHL film 1068615 for Warden parish records:
      "By license, Joseph Burnhope and Elizabeth Mewis - both of the Chapelry of Haydon in this parish - were married by licence in this church this thirteenth day of January 1782 by me Wm. Laidman. This marriage was solemnized between us: [signed] Jos. Burnhope, Eliz'th Mewis [her mark of X]. In the presence of John Walton."

      MARRIAGE:
      1. Note that the church in Haydon was not allowed to record marriages since they were not licensed per the Hardwich Marriage Act of 1754. Marriages resume after 1797. Consequently, the marriage was performed in Warden which was the parish responsible for the subservient chapelry of Haydon. The entry per FHL film 1068615 for Warden parish records:
      12 Jul 1783: John Walton and Hannah Burnhope, both of the Chapelry of Haydon. Wit: Wm. Topping and Jos. Burnhope. Md. by John Farrer, curate. Both sign their names as John Walton and Hannah Burnhope. [The witness Joseph Burnhope is most likely Hannah's brother.]
      A search of other Burnhope marriages in this parish in the same time period shows only two others, both of which are relations - Hannah's brother Joseph and Elizabeth Mewis 13 Jan 1792 and Hannah's nephew (Joseph and Elizabeth's son) William Burnhope to Mary Oliver 10 Jul 1808.
