Default Bankhope, Acklington

Hi, I'm trying to find a place, probably a farm, called Bankhope, Acklington. It's indicated on the 1911 census as the birthplace of my grandmother in 1892.

Could it possibly be Bank House at Guyzance?

Hi, could be. Hope becomes house?
Her family were farm labourers. I think it'd be safe to say she was born on a farm around Guyzance/Ackligton, propbably Bank House.
Thanks for your reply.

Bank House was certainly a big set up. My great grandmother's brother was an agricultural labourer there, killed in a farm related accident in 1884. The family obviously had to vacate their home, so maybe your family moved in to replace them! You never know. Here it is on an old map.

Interesting! I think my Grandmothers family were very itinerant farm labourers. All her brothers were born on different farms between Acklington and Alnwick. They were on Acklington farms from 1888 to 1896. After that they were up around Ellingham. When she met my Grandfather in 1919 she was working on Druridge farm, he was a miner living in Middle Steads just north of Widdrington.

Sounds very similar to my ancestors journeys. Off the land and into the pits!
