    Notes 
    • There is another Thomas b abt 1813 at Wallsend; do not confuse the two.

      Wonder if Thomas was named Thomas Simpson Wanless after his mother's first married name?

      Not in 1891 census.
      Possible death, although he should be 72/73:
      Wanless Thomas Newcastle 1885 Sep 10b 90 age 75
      or this:
      Wanless Thomas Tynemouth 1886 Jun 10B 144 age 72
      He was in Newcastle in 1881, but could have moved back to Wallsend.

      His daughter Margaret was a companion to and lived with Jacob and Ann Grey of Newcastle from about 1874 to her death in 1879, and Ann is described as her cousin - how is she related?
