      4. Birth place of Heddon-in-the-Wall is at Hadrian's Wall across northern England. The roman wall at this location is up to 10 feet thick. Hadrian's Wall was built by Roman soldiers from the three legions of Britain and is 8 roman feet thick (a roman foot is slightly larger than a standard foot), 12 feet high and fronted by a ditch except where natural crags of rock made this unnecessary. An earthwork known as the vallum, ran behind the wall and between the vallum and the wall was military way. Every third of a mile, a tower was built and every mile, a milefort or milecastle with barrack blocks. Larger forts were built at intervals of approximately 7 miles. The wall remained in use until the end of the rule of Rome in Britain in 410. Hadrian's Wall was built as a continuous defensive barrier across northern England from the Solway Firth on the west coast to Wallsend in the east (73 miles) by Caesar Trainus Hadrianus Augustus, Roman Emperor between 117-138 who was responsible for the unification and consolidation of the Roman Empire. Initial building took 6 years followed by vrious expansions. The wall has suffered damage to the stones being used for local house building and road being taken through it. Many parts of it still remain.

      BIOGRAPHY:
      1. Biographical sketch of Robert Mattinson, "Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah," pg. 1027: "Mattinson, Robert (son of Peter Mattinson, born Dec. 3, 1803, and Ann Shaw, born Feb. 6, 1812, of Sunderland, Eng.). He was born July 16, 1835, Lancashire, Eng. Came to Utah Nov. 30 1856, Edward Martin handcart company. Married Betsy C. Burnhope (daughter of Isaac Burnhope and Elizabeth Charlton, latter a pioneer Aug. 19, 1868, John R. Murdock company). She was born in England. Their children: E.A., m. James Nolan; Laura S., m. Peter Borup; Marie, m. Richard Barrett; Ann, m. J.F. Rushter; R. Frank; H.B. b. Nov. 24, 1880; Effie M., m. E.O. Simons; Joseph B., m. Ella Balch; Roy B. b. Sept. 11, 1891; Veatus b. Oct 16, 1893. Family home Payson, Utah."

      2. 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..."

      BIRTH:
      1. Dates seem to vary subject to the source:
      26 Oct 1806 at Heddon-in-the-Wall, Northumberland per 1847 LDS convert baptismal record.
      22 Oct 1806 at Heddin-in-the-Wall per 1843-1854 LDS branch records.
      21 Oct 1807 at Newburn, Northumberland per 1848-1870 LDS branch record.
      22 Oct 1806 at Helton in the Wall, Northumberland, England per living endowment record.
      Mid-Oct 1806 per obituary calculation of age.
      I use christening record below for birth.

      2. Sunderland, England LDS Branch records 1843-1854, FHL film 87035, p. 4, entry 27: "Elizabeth Burnip, born at Heddin-in-the-Wall, Oct. 22nd, 1806, baptized in Hendon Bay August 29th, 1847 by W. Knox. Confirmed by C. Phelps and W. Knox and E. Gillis in the arcade - removed to South Shields Oct AD 1849."

      3. Sunderland, England LDS Branch records 1843-1854, Reformation and Rebaptism of Durham Conference, FHL film 87035, p. 2a, entry 28: "Elizabeth Burnop, born at Heddon-in-the-Wall, NHumberland, Oct. 26th, 1806. Baptized at Sunderland, Durham by William Knox June 5th, 1847. Confirmed in Sunderland, Durham by C. Phelps. Moved Oct 1849."

      4. South Shields [Durham Co.], England LDS Branch records 1848-1855, 1870, Membership Roster, FHL film 87033, p. 1, entry 6: "Elizabeth Burnip, md., residence at Boldon, born at Newburn, Northum., 21 Oct 1807. Baptized at Sunderland, 27 Aug 1847."

      CHRISTENING:
      1. Online Ordinance Index has the following extracted record (Film printout 6904961, film source 0593804, dates 1775-1838, batch C06481) which gives Elizabeth Charleton, b. 21 Sep 1806 to Thome. Charleton and Elizabeth Ferguson and christened 29 Sep 1806 at St. Thomas Aquino Roman Catholic, Stella, Durham, England. County Durham directly adjoins County Northumberland. There is no Catholic church in Heddon-on-the-Wall and this particular church is just a few miles southeast of Heddon-on-the-Wall. Another child Ann is also christened in the same church per FHL film # 593804. The church records are written in Latin. Each Christening is divided by town location title. Before Ann Carlton is "Heddon-on-the-Wall." The god parent listed for Ann is Maria Lock. Sometimes godparents could be a relative (maybe Maria Ferguson or Maria Charlton?). It is interesting that the Charlton parents are buried in the Established Church whereas some of their children were baptized in a Catholic Church.

      2. From website www.Nathanielspens.com 18 Dec 2003, there is the following unreviewed/undocumented variant by me: 8 Sep 1807 at St. John's Parish, Newcastle/Tyne, Northumberland, England.

      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."
