    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. The following family appears in the Hunstanworth Parish (1659-1760) Register (birth, marr., and burials) and is most likely a brother to Isaac Burnhope even though no specific relationship is indicated except just being the same age in the same parish with exactly the same spelling of surname. It may also be significant that Ramshaw is at the end of Mill Road as described below since our Isaac also a miller later at Woodhall Mill near Haydon Bridge where he dies in 1789. Newbigginhope is less than a mile northwest of Hunstanworth. Except for the christenings of the three children of Isaac, the following are the only other Burnhopes in the Registers. I have also since confirmed the entries with the church records on FHL film 1068651. Ramshay/Ramsby is probably the small property called Ramshaw on older maps or very good modern maps; it can be located on by going straight south just a little over a mile from Hunstanworth through the farmstead Townfield. The main road ends at the tip of the V created where Mill Road intersects the road south. On Google maps, this appears to be nothing more than a farmstead. The notations in [brackets] are my estimation of family grouping and the way I have arranged them in New Family Search 3 Aug 2009:
      Marr. 3 May 1747, Wm. Burnhope and Jane Short. [Probable parents of the next four children.]
      Bapt. 14 Jan 1747/1748, John Burnhope, son of William of Ramshay.
      Bapt. 29 Jul 1750, William Burnhope, son of William of Ramshay.
      Bapt. 29 Oct 1752, George Burnhope, son of William.
      Bur. 8 Sep 1755, Jane Burnhope, wife of William of Ramshy. [Probably Jane Short since no more entries for children occur. Judging from year, she may have died in childbirth.]
