    • The Newcastle Courant etc (Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England), Friday, February 9, 1849
      Died at Amble on the 3rd inst, aged 90, Mr Thomas Wandless, late of Alnmouth, much respected.

      [Also in the Newcastle Guardian & Tyne Mercury 10 Feb 1849.]
    Notes 
    • No other children christened in Lesbury 1812-1877 or Warkworth 1812-1840s, and none born in the area to Thomas & Isabella in IGI 1803-1812. According to Alnmouth history, it was pretty far from the parish church at Lesbury, so lots of folks didn't bother with baptisms. Some used Howick.

      Dau. Isabella b. 1803 a few months after her parents marriage is listed as the 3rd dau. of Thomas by his wife Isabella. No obvious match for earlier marriage to Jane in IGI. Note Thomas was about 44 when he married Isabella who was about 22.

      Assuming he was from the general Alnmouth area, closest birth in IGI is Thomas chr. Chatton 09 DEC 1764, father John. But that's about 5 yrs later than his age per his death cert and the 1841 census.

      Possible relatives:
      --------------------------
      Per IGI (parish reg), a Margarita Wanless married Gulielmus (Latin for William) Turpin on 14 JUN 1724 at Warkworth.

      Might be related to (father of by first marriage?) James Wanless who married Isabella Willis - he was born abt 1783 at High Buston, which is near Warkworth & Lesbury. Need chr. rec. to see if that Thomas was a shepherd. Likewise, Thomas could be the Thomas of Bradford Lowmill who christened John in 1802 at Warenford (Val Taylor's line). But then he would have 2 sons named John who both lived, so that's not likely.
