James Hope father of Issobell AKA Isabel
« on: Sunday 13 September 15 16:52 BST (UK) »
Hi,

Through some great research started by another's family tree, I have been able to get back to James Hope father of:

James Hope Christening  Aug 20 1732 Peebles, Peebles, Scotland
Issobell AKA  Isabel Christening Jun 30 1734 Peebles, Peebles, Scotland
Alexander Hope  Christening Jan 11 1736 Peebles, Peebles, Scotland
Elisbeth Hope Christening Nov 12 1738 Peebles, Peebles, Scotland

I thought I would then seek out his marriage details.

I have come up with these possibles:

1.
James Hope
mentioned in the record of James Hope and Maitland Lettie
Name    James Hope
Spouse's Name    Maitland Lettie
Event Date    09 Jan 1728
Event Place    Inveresk With Musselburgh,Midlothian,Scotland

or

James Hope
mentioned in the record of James Hope and Agnes Grinlaw
Name    James Hope
Spouse's Name    Agnes Grinlaw
Event Date    09 Jun 1732
Event Place    Longformacus,Berwick,Scotland


Question 1.

Is Midlothian closer to Peebles than Berwick?

2. IS one of these liekly to be the marriage of my James Hope?

3. Has anyone done this tree/family line?

Thanks

Hi

Are you sure there were no more children ?

Familysearch shows two later baptisms with mothers names given

Kathren Hope bp. 20 January 1745 Peebles. PArents: James HOPE and Christian TURNBULL

and a James bp. 25 September 1743 Peebles. Parents: James HOPE and Elizabeth SALTON

EDIT: can rule out Christian Turnbull, she married 1743

This is what threw me off:

Jennet Sallton & Allexander Brunton
Marriage:   Aug 13 1731
 Peebles, Peebles, Scotland
Wife:   Jennet Sallton
Husband:   Allexander Brunton
Indexing Project (Batch) Number:   M11768-6
System Origin:   Scotland-ODM
GS Film number:   102267, 1067920, 1067921

and I can't find a death certificate or burial for Allexander Brunton.
