    Notes 
    • Possible death record:
      Wanlass Thomas Newcastle T. 1859 Jun 10b 104

      Thomas may be the son or grandson of Joseph Wanlass & Rachel Walton of Alston, Cumberland. He named children Thomas, Rachel, Joseph, Ralph - all names from the Alston-area family. Son Hugh is after his wife's father. Joseph and Rachel's daughter Mary married in Tynemouth in 1797, so she at least was in the North Shields area. J & R had a son Thomas in 1776, who could have died young, or this Thomas could be the son of Thomas b. 1776.

      No birth match in IGI.

      Here is a possibility. In the Strays tree (100), we have Thomas Laws Wanless born 1798, christened 1800 in North Shields, to Thomas Wanless & Dorothy Coxon, whose marriage has not been found. The father Thomas is a linen draper in North Shields - he could be the Thomas b. 1776.

      Likely earlier child - burial at Garrigill:
      19 Feb 1821 Joseph Wanlass, Red-brow, infant
      -- no matching baptism at Garrigill or Alston, but the timing is right for this to be their first child
