My friend found a baptism record for Elizabeth Ramage in 1810. We need help in identifying the parish.
**
"The register contains the baptism of Andrew Ramage’s second daughter, Elizabeth, and it’s a detailed entry and gives his native parish as Peebles (see attached).  Unfortunately we can’t read the place named – Westerpiuhope? – nor can we find it on an old Ordnance Survey map."

Thanks

I could not find this Parish either.

One avenue that you might consider is contacting the Borders Family History Society. They can be found at  www.bordersfhs.org.uk/p_shire.asp

Good luck.

Not sure if it's much help but there are quite a few 'Hopes' around the Ettrick Forest area. Also, I found a Pinhope burn mentioned in Scotlands Place - near a White Hill in  Roxburghshire.

Thank you.
My friend had said: "Just to let you know about a week ago I discovered a full transcription of a ‘missing’ Byrness baptism and burial register in the Society of Genealogists library in London.  An index of this register is on FindMyPast, but I ran into a cul-de-sac when I wanted to view the original register to check additional details in it: neither the London FamilySearch Centre nor the Woodhorn Archive in Northumberland has a microfilm of it, and when I contacted Woodhorn they said it had never been deposited with them.  Luckily, the SoG has a handwritten transcription, made in 1939 from another transcription.  Result!"

So this handwritten transcription was made in 1939 from another transcription and something may have "got lost in translation."

Richard, won't help necessarily with working out place name from baptism, but could this be Andrew Ramage's https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTB8-DZG  Would fit well with the name of his children (James and Elizabeth).

Thank you Monica.
I have this record on my Anc***** tree as the most likely for Andrew.
It's always good that somebody else agrees that this is the best fit.

Westerhope is in Tweedsmuir, Peeblesshire.  Could that be it.  Found it on Scotlandsplaces.gov.uk

Can't find it in the census so maybe long gone even before 1841.

The place name reads Westerpinhope in the par(ish) of Peebles.

I volunteer at Borders FHS archives and can find no Westerpinhope in Peebles.  Westerhope in Tweedsmuir is the closest.
