    Notes 
    • I'm betting that Geo. who married Isabella Young is the one for whom all these census entries are for, based on the location and their son named Thomas Young Wanless.

      For some odd reason, we can't find any Wan(d)lesses in Portobello/Harraton/Fatfield in the 1841 census. Also we don't see him or his wife in the 1871 census we have, but they are in 1881.

      The only birth match in the IGI is: George Wanlass chr. 18 Jun 1802 Auckland St. Andrew (where Shildon is), to John Wanlass & Jane Beatson. He is the only birth listed for them. They married 27 MAY 1801 Auckland Saint Andrew. I wonder though if he is related to Luke Wandless & Ann Hall, since he ends up in the same village as their son Luke. Wonder why there are no more known children of John W and Jane Beatson? (Wonder if she died and John later remarried Ann Littlefair at same Auckland St Andrew Church).

      Strays who may be related:
      1851 census - Fatfield - Isabella md. to Robert Hobson has son Robert Wan(d)less age 15, so was either married to a Wanless first or had a child before marriage

      1861 census, Fatfield village - Elizabeth Wanless or Wandless, Female Servant, 50, Housekeeper, Chester le Street.
      In 1871, she is a servant for Jeremiah Watson:
      Elizabeth Wanless or Wandless, Female Servant, 60, Fatfield
      in Fatfield Square, Fatfield village.

      John b. abt 1791 in Old Shildon, wife Ann, in Old Shildon in 1851 census.
      William b. abt 1791 in Shildon, wives Ann (Towers?) & Mary Raws
