    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. By following the various christening records of his children, we can ascertain Isaac's residence and and the name of his wife Jane. Isaac lived in the Newbiggin/Riddlehamhope area which was centered near Shotley, Hunstantworth, and Hexham parishes all of which he had children christened. Newbiggin/Riddlehamhope do not show on most maps since they are not villages as much as a just a location. Using older maps, I was able to locate them. On modern maps such as Google, locate Hunstanworth in County Durham. Just slightly above Hunstanworth across the field is the River Derwent going from west to east. Slightly to the west of Hunstanworth, the river turns upward northwesternly while a serpentine forested hill turns southwesterly. At this first bow on the north side is Newbiggin Fell. Continue to follow the river as it then immediately turns back west and then you are at Riddlehamhope on the north side of the river. Slightly to the west of that is Riddlehamhope Fell. Note that this river is the boundary between counties Durham on the south and Northumberland on the north thereby making the Burnhopes residents of Northumberland. The meaning of the old English word Fell is from the Old Norse meaning an upland stretch of open country; a moor; or a barren or stony hill. We know that Isaac was a miller because he eventually ends up at Woodhall Mill very near Haydon's Bridge where he dies in 1781. The location of Newbiggin/Riddlehamhope on a river may have been due to work as a miller even though his early profession is not given in the christening records.
      The record of his child William must appear in two separate registers (a local and bishop's transcript?) because my transcription shows the entry below whereas the LDS IGI shows the same entry without the father but with a mother Jane Burnhope listed. This establishes Jane as the wife of Isaac. The various parish records showing the christening of Isaac's children in chronological order show:
      Shotley, Northumberland:
      William Burnhope, son of Isaac of Newggin(sic) hope chr. 21 Jul 1745.
      Hunstanworth, Durham:
      Kath. Burnhope, d. of Isaac, chr. 27 Jul 1747.
      Isaac Burnhope, s. of Isaac of Ridlehope [sic], chr. 2 Mar 1748/1749 (bur in 1762 in Hexham).
      John Burnhope, s. of Isaac of Newbigginhope, chr. 10 Mar 1750/1751
      Hexham, Northumberland:
      Mary Burnep, dau. of Isaac Burnep chr. 14 Oct 1753.
      Joseph Burnip, son of Isaac Burnip chr. 7 Mar 1756.
      Ann Burnip, dau. of Isaac Burnip chr. 9 Apr 1758.
      Hannah Burnip, dau. of Isaac Burnip chr. 23 Mar 1760.

      2. The following two records for the same son help establish parentage of William as Isaac and Jane Burnhope:
      A. From the book of indexed baptisms (1675-1786) transcripts in the Shotley parish church from my 23 Jun 2009 visit to the Society of Genealogists in London, England. I also reviewed parish record transcripts in the Northumberland and Durham Record Offices. The baptismal entry transcript: "1745, Jul 21, William Burnhope, son of Isaac of Newggin(sic) hope."
      B. LDS IGI has an extracted record for William Burnhope, chr. 21 Jul 1745 at Shotley, Northumberland, England with a mother shown as Jane Burnhope. No father is shown in this extraction. No other Burnhopes (or other name variations) occur in the fully extracted christening record of 1675-1861.
