      BURIAL:
      1. From the book of indexed burial (1654-1812) transcripts in the Haydon Bridge parish church from my 23 Jun 2009 visit to the Society of Genealogists in London, England. Note that the place Woodhall is actually Woodhall Mill which still exists and which I visited. It sits by itself less than a mile east of Haydon Bridge on a small creek and has been recently divided and renovated into a small freehold of four homes while retaining the old name. It was an actual mill once owned by Lady Dentwent of the gentry. The Burnhopes were contract millers moving from one mill to the next depending on their contracts. Contemporary records of that time indicate that the Burnhopes were millers. There is nothing else in the near vicinity making it its own farm/mill in the countryside. Haydon Bridge would be the nearest parish church. The following are all of the individuals surnamed Burnhope or variation thereof for the period of time from 1654-1812. We can surmise that the Burnhopes first moved to the area by no later than 1785 when Joseph had a child christened there and that Isaac's son Joseph continued there until at least 1809 when his daughter Elizabeth is buried there. We can also link Joseph with Isaac since both are of the Woodhall Mill, a single farmstead. Being that Isaac died without a notation that he was the "son of," we can safely assume he was an adult and even though there is the possibility he could be a brother of Joseph, it is more likely in my opinion that he was the father:
      1781, Oct 4: Isaac Burnhope of Woodhall.
      1809, Oct 1: Elizabeth Burnhope, dau. of Joseph of Haydon Bridge.
      1790, Oct 25: Thomas Burnhope, son of Joseph of Woodhall Mill.
