      3. From online biographical sketch of Robert Mattinson, 4 Nov 2002: Jake Mattinson. E-mail . Webpage <http://www.angelfire.com/ut/Mattinson/biog.html>:
      Betsy C. Mattinson, daughter of Isaac and Elizabeth Burnhope, born June 19, 1848, Stay-the-Voyage, county of Durham, England. Baptized August 16, 1862, by Elder M. C. Farnsworth. Died August 17, 1922.

      Isaac Burnhope, son of William and Mary Burnhope, born August 1805. Baptized by Elder William Knox. Died February 14, 1869, Salt Lake City. [Note these dates are in variance with those I use and as cited below.]
      Elizabeth Burnhope, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Charlton, born October 21, 1803. Baptized by Elder William Knox." [Note date is in variance to what I use.]

      4. Sketch of the Life of Mary Ann Burnhope Wallace [see her notes for full citation]: "I was born April 24, 1835 at Hexham, Northumberland Co., England. My parents, Isaac Burnhope and Elizabeth Charlton, were of English birth and of Protestant and Catholic faith, until the year 1847 when they with their seven children were baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My father, when a young man, enlisted in the British Army. He was bought off, ran away and joined the army, served his time and then worked at freighting. After his marriage he was a section foreman on the railroad. My mother was a housekeeper in the families of the nobility for fifteen years previous to her marriage. My ancestors were foresters and brewers... My parents, with my brother, Thomas, and sister, Betsy, came to Salt Lake City from England in the summer of 1868. They lived with us and in February 1869 father died with erysipelas. Mother was very sick with the dreadful disease, but recovered..."

      5. Entry from Journal with no name given, FHL film 485335, item 1, pp. 265, 266:
      Mon., 3 Jan 1853: " I read in the 1st Number of Star, Vol. 15 the Revelation given to Joseph Smith in 1842 on Marriage. Some of the Sisters looked rather Solid at it, but no kicking that I have as yet discovered. I visited several families of the Saints, and met with the Book of Doctrine and Covenants Class, spoke a short time to the School, and went to my lodgings."
      Tues., 4 Jan 1853: "Went in train to Bro. Burnhopes. Got my dinner and read the revelation to them which was given to Joseph in 1843, then walked to North Shields and baptized three..."

      6. From website www.Nathanielspens.com 18 Dec 2003: Isaac Burnhope was a bricklayer.

      7. The following names are found in the following document: "Names of Persons and Sureties indebted to the Perpetual Emigrating Fund company 1850 to 1877," (also known as the 1877 Debtors Index) by Richard L.

      Isaac Burnhope -- Elizabeth, Thomas, Betsey: 1868.

      BIRTH:
      1. It is my opinion that Wharmley is the best choice for birthplace. It is misspelled in the records below as Wheamley, but modern maps show it as Wharmley. It is about centered in a triangle formed by Hexham, Haydon Bridge, and Warden. Being it has no church, the three previous mentioned towns do and they are all about two miles away..

      2. Date per website for Utah State Historical Society Cemeteries Database; 8 Jan 2002. Notes: "Haxham, Northumberland, Eng."

      3. Variant date shown in some LDS family group sheets is 12 Nov 1808. Variant location of Fillside also shown.

      4. Sunderland, England LDS Branch records 1843-1854, FHL film 87035, p. 4, entry 25: "Isaac Burnip, born at Wheamelly, Co. Northumberland, Nov. 15th, 1808 Baptized in Hendon Bay by Ebeneser Gillis June 5th, 1847. Confirmed in the arcade June 6th by C. Phelps and William Knox - removed to South Shields Oct AD 1849."

      5. Sunderland, England LDS Branch records 1843-1854, Reformation and Rebaptism of Durham Conference, FHL film 87035, p. 2a, entry 26: "Isaac Burnop, born at Wheamelly, NHumberland, Nov. 15th, 1808. Baptized at Sunderland June 5th, 1847. Confirmed June 6th, 1847 in Sunderland, Durham by C. Phelps. Moved Oct 1849."

      6. South Shields [Durham Co.], England LDS Branch records 1848-1855, 1870, Membership Roster, FHL film 87033, p. 1, entry 5: "Isaac Burnip, md., residence at Boldon, born at Worden, Northum., 15 Nov 1808. Baptized at Sunderland, 5 Jan 1847, Elder."

      7. Endowment by proxy by son Thomas Burnhope indicates birthdate of 12 Nov 1808 at Hepham Cumb., Eng.

      CHRISTENING:
      1. My research shows no christening record for this individual in the Hexham Parish records. All of Isaac's siblings are in the record showing they were living in Fellside then Sunnyside.

      MARRIAGE:
      1. FHL film # 87,035, South Shields Branch, England, 1827-1852; "Branch Registration of Marriages, per Certificates thereof": "Isaac Burnhope and Elizabeth Burnhope, registered at South Shields, married 12 Aug 1831 in Hexham by [illegible]."

      2. No source cited but part of a list of 8 individuals with Charlton surname all married in Hexham, England; I don't recognized any of the other names except the following: "Isaac Burnhope and Elizabeth Charlton (both of Hexham) 13 Aug 1831 by William ??? (Curate)."

      3. Online Ordinance Index has the following extracted marriage record per FHL film M109171: Isaac Burnhope and Elizabeth Charlton, m. 13 Aug 1831 at Hexham, Northumberland, England.

      4. Hexham Marriage Transcripts, 1754-1861: 13 Aug 1831, Isaac Burnhope and Eliz. Charlton, both of the parish. Wit. Jsp. Burnhope, Jane Fiske. [An alternate transcription of Hexham marriages gives a date of 30 Aug 1830 for this couple. Source: Rounces Marriage Index: Hexham Marriages 1759-1837.]

      5. The following variant is provided by Louise Crookston, Pinedale Arizona "cllouise@juno.com May 18, 2009 by email to me. Her exact source is unclear and the date of the marriage does not correspond with the the more definitive marriage sources listed above - so I discount the reported 1830 below in her notes: "The Burnhopes are related to me through my great grandfather, Nathaniel Spens. Jane Ann Burnhope was his first wife. She has an older brother named William Burnhope born 1832. I do not have an exact birth date for William, nor do I have a wife, but I do have the christening record that indicates his father was Isaac Burnhope and his mother Elizabeth. I have the record of his parents marriage 30 August 1830 in Hexham, Northumberland, England. "Parents' marriage: Parish Hexham alternatively Hexham, St. Andrew aka Abbey in county Nbl Married on 30/08/1830 Groom Isaac Burnhope residence - other - Bride Elizabeth Charlton residence - other - Orig - Checked N "William's christening record: Christening/Baptism record: 21 October 1832 Child's name William BURNHOPE Father Isaac Mother Elizabeth Mother's Maiden name - Place Sunnyside Occupation - Other info - Father Hind Mother - Notes - Birth date -/-/- Parish Hexham, Nbl Checked Checked."

      DEATH:
      1. Date and place per website for Utah State Historical Society Cemeteries Database; 8 Jan 2002.

      2. Per obituary; age 60 year and 3 months is exact with birth on 15 Nov and death on 15 Feb in the noted years. Confirms with note #1 above.

      3. Daughter in her autobiography indicates Feb., 1869.

      4. Death per temple endowment record cited below.

      5. Copy on file of 1869 death or burial records of Salt Lake City; photocopy made by Chris Petersen but source, actual title, and date not given. Page appears to be 1869 and is only second half of page with names cut off but judging from death date, it is of Isaac Burnhope. Transcription: born at "Hexham, Northumberland, England, died 15 Jun 1869 of Erycephalus, H 9 11."

      BURIAL:
      1. Date and place per website for Utah State Historical Society Cemeteries Database; 8 Jan 2002. Notes "H-9-11-ROD-SO.2"
