Descendants of Thomas BURNETT of Bishop Monkton

Notes


39. William BURNETT

William emigrated to Vermont in America with his uncle, Thomas METCALF, when he was a young man and married there. Many years later his brother John also emigrated. William obviously returned to his home country in later life - he lived in Yorkshire at the time of his death in 1902.

All of the information about William's descendants came from Rose Barnes, a great-granddaughter of William's brother John, who provided a detailed family tree showing the descendants of the two brothers in America. This information has since been confirmed in the original source - the book by Charles Henning HENDRICKS published in 1996 under the title: "William Burnett and Edna Mead of Underhill, Vermont : their descendants and their ancestry ", available on microfilm through the LDS Family History Library.

Edward BURNETT, lab, 17, farm labourer, Littlethorpe - [one of five men employed as farm labourers by farmer Christopher CLARKE.]

Edward married Ann HELMSLEY in 1855 and they had two known children before 1861, however, the family have not been found in 1861 census returns for England & Wales. Edward was a railway worker and could have been in Scotland at the time of the census.

He was identified as her son - see notes for this Abraham BURNETT]

Abraham   do       , son, 13, errand boy, Ripon
//
This Abraham was without doubt the son of the recently deceased Edward BURNETT of Ripon but his mother was Ann BURNETT, nee HELMSLEY, who would have been 54 yrs old at the time of this census and who was born in Bedale. So who was the 'mother' Jane BURNETT in this census return? **Possibly** Mary Jane, daughter of Edward & Ann BURNETT of Ripon, with her supposed illegitimate son. If this was the case she was almost certainly NOT a widow, she had added 8yrs to her age and she had given a false birthplace. There was an unusually long gap of 14yrs between the birth of Edward & Ann's son Harry and the birth of Abraham, and Ann would have been 41yrs old when Abraham was born whereas her daughter Mary Jane would have been just 22yrs old. The jury is still out.

1901 census: RG13/4042, folio 10, p12
Abraham was living with his brother William Robert BURNETT & his family in Ripon - see notes for William Robert BURNETT.

John emigrated to America sometime after the 1891 census. Rose Barnes, a great-granddaughter of John, has provided a detailed family tree showing the descendants in America of John, and his brother William, who also emigrated.


87. Christopher BURNETT

GRO Index of Births: BURNETT, Christopher, Sep 1862, Ripon, 9a 70

Christopher's mother died when he was just 2yrs old and his father John BURNETT married again. After having six more children with his second wife, John emigrated with his family to America. Christopher was thought to have accompanied them. According to information provided by Rose Barnes in America, a descendant of John BURNETT, Christopher died on 14 Jul 1962 - she did not say where. If correct, Christopher was 100yrs old at the time of his death. This could not be confirmed in primary sources, indeed Christopher was not recorded with his father & half-siblings in 1871 census returns [his sister Jane Ann was] and the GRO Index of Deaths contains the following entry: BURNETT, Christopher, Sep 1862, Ripon, 9a 45.
It would appear that Christopher died as an infant. The date of death was *probably* 14 Jul 1862.


88. Jane Ann BURNETT

Information from Rose Barnes, a descendant of Jane Ann's father John BURNETT who lives in America, gives date of birth 20 May 1863. This is NOT consistent with ages in census returns and birth registration. The date of birth was *probably* 20 May 1861.

GRO Index of Births: BURNETT, Jane Ann, Jun 1861, Ripon, 9a 81

1871 census: RG10/4280, folio 5, p6
With her father and step-mother in Dishforth, age 9yrs, birthplace Littlethorpe - see notes for father John BURNETT.

Jane Ann married John SMITH in 1878 - though she was only c18yrs old at the time.

1881 census: RG11/4318, folio 156, p30
Bridge Hewick
John SMITH, head, 30, farm labourer [Ag], Hawnby

Jane Ann's husband John and their son John both died before the 1891 census was taken.

Copt Hewick
Jane SMITH, head, wid, 30, laundress, Littlethorpe
Sidney do , son, 8, scholar, North Stainley
Margaret do, dau, 6, scholar, Kepwick Limekilns
//

It is interesting to note that Jane Ann's grandfather William BURNETT died at Copt Hewick in 1889, according to a monumental inscription in Bishop Monkton churchyard. He may have been staying with his granddaughter, being looked after by her in his old age.

Jane Ann married again in 1892 - her second husband was Thomas INGLEBY.

1901 census: RG13/4054, folio 44, p48

SYdney and Margaret SMITH were of course Thomas INGLEBY's step-children, not his son & daughter.


89. Arthur BURNETT

1871 census: RG10/4280, folio 3, p1
Arthur aged 4 months was living with his grandparents William & Jane BURNETT


90. Rose BURNETT

Rose Burnett was the grandmother of Rose BARNES who has provided a detailed family tree showing the American descendants of William Burnett and Jane Metcalf.

Rose Burnett was also the great-grandmother of Debbie HERNDON who is also researching this branch of the BURNETT family.


92. Edward BURNETT

Dishforth parish register has the baptism of Edward on the same day, probably at the same time, as that of his brother John. However, they were not twins - Edward was born in 1874 and was thus two years old at the time of the baptism.


48. William BURNETT

GRO Index of Births: BURNETT, William, Mar 1841, Ripon, xxiii 310
Born at Wind Hill Farm, Bishop Thornton, where his father farmed.

Mary (LIGHT) WALKER

Mary was a widow when she married William BURNETT. Her first husband had obviously had the surname WALKER but her maiden surname was LIGHT. [see notes for second husband William BURNETT]


95. William WALKER

1881 census: living with his mother and step-father William BURNETT at Burton Leonard [See notes for step-father William BURNETT].

1891 census: RG12/3518, folio 162, p3
No.5 Station Road, Burton Leonard.
William WALKER, nephew, unm, 28, Well Sinker, born South Stainley, was living with head of household Joseph LIGHT, next door but one to the widower William BURNETT. William's mother Mary must therefore have been Joseph's sister - from which we can deduce that William BURNETT's wife, Mary WALKER, was the former Mary LIGHT.

Some time before 1891 Mary ‘married’ Joseph BAINS as witnessed by the following census extract:

No record of Polly's marriage to Joseph BAINS has yet been found.


103. George Herbert BURNETT

GRO Index of Births: BURNETT, George Herbert, Mar 1875, Settle, 9a 21

The entry for George Herbert's baptism, in the Bishop Monkton parish register, indicates that he was the [illegitimate] son of Mary BURNETT, "single woman" of Manchester. It would appear that Mary, having become pregnant while working away from home in Manchester, had come home for the birth and to have the child baptised. Mary's brother Thomas had recently married and moved to the Skipton area and it is possible that Mary stayed with him and his wife.

George Herbert may have been brought up by his grandparents, George and Margaret BURNETT. At the time of the 1881 census he was staying with George & Margaret in Bishop Monkton. Given age 6yrs, birthplace Malham [see notes for grandfather George BURNETT].

*[North-Eastern Railways]

 

William was living next door to his father George BURNETT.  Wife Annie was a widow when she married William, her first husband having been named FULLER and the two children of that name being from that relationship.  Peter BURNETT in America, a descendant of William and Annie provided the information that her maiden surname was REYNARD. The lodger William REYNARD was probably a close relative - possibly her brother.

 

Wife Annie died in 1896 shortly after son William jnr was born.   William snr wasted no time in marrying again - he married second wife Sarah in 1897 [GRO: Mar 1897, Ripon].

**James Henry BURNETT, the first child of William's second marriage.

 

Information provided by Peter BURNETT in America shows that William died in c1922 in Lagos, Nigeria. Kay Gifford and Linda Donald, two others with research interests in William Burnett, have found shipping records that showed he had voyaged to and from Africa on several occasions from the early 1900’s to 1920. It is possible that William might have been 'trapped' in Lagos for the duration of the First World War 1914-18.


Annie (REYNARD) FULLER

Annie's maiden name was REYNARD. Her marriage to William BURNETT was her second. Her first marriage was to a man named FULLER with whom she had two children, Edward b:1881, and Edith b:1884. These children were listed as William BURNETT's step-children in 1881 census returns. [see notes for husband William BURNETT]


110. Mable BURNETT

1891 census: living with her parents and brother Fred at "Moor End", Bishop Monkton.
[see notes for father William BURNETT]

Age given as 3yrs 11mths at burial on 24 Dec 1893 - hence born c Jan 1889. Mabel was about 9 months old at her baptism in Oct 1890.

Information provided by Peter BURNETT in America, a descendant of Mabel's brother Fred, suggests that she died in a tragic fire accident.

[Following notes provided by Kay GIFFORD]
There is some evidence to suggest that his Annie BURNETT had a (possibly) illegitimate male child, prior to marrying Benjamin R. AITCHISON in 1914, in Darlington, Co Durham. He died 1949 in Durham. They had a child Agnes AITCHISON, b: 28 Aug 1915, Co Durham (d: 8 Nov 2008 Bishop Auckland, Durham).

Agnes was brought up by her father Benjamin Aitchison and his sister, as Annie left the marriage whilst husband was serving in France. He asked his mother had she seen Annie as he had not received replies to his letters. It appears that Annie left behind Agnes and took off with her son never to be heard of or found at a later date. It is possible that she met up with an American or Canadian and left with him for the America's in c1918.
