    Notes 
    • High Buston (in Warkworth parish) is just next to Lesbury. May be related to the Isabella Wanless chr. Lesbury 1803? Birth not in IGI, although IGI is supposed to contain Warkworth for those time periods. Father might be named Thomas, as that's what he named his first son. May also be a brother to John Wanless who married Elizabeth Turner - he was born at Bradford, Belford/Bamburgh in 1802, chr. at Warenford, and his father is speculated to be Thomas of Bradford Lowmill.

      Marriage not in IGI under either name.

      Possible christening at Chillingham, Northumberland (from parish register):
      bap 12 Feb 1786 James son of Thomas Wanlass, Chillingham, a bastard
      Chillingham is just west of Ellingham where his wife was christened and only 5 miles from Lucker where some of his children were christened. It's possible that he was christened there because it was a family seat, or it's possible he was born there but moved to High Buston shortly after, so thought he was born in High Buston. Note this is the only match for a James b. NBL 1781-1785. This is the only Chillingham Wanless record.

      Possible other son, from 1851 census, living at Barrasford, Chollerton, NBL in the Coulson household:
      Wm. WANLAS, Lodger, Un, 25, Ag. Lab, Northd Bamburgh
      If we ever find son Robert's christening, we might find William's at the same church. Note IGI has Lucker baps through 1875 and Mary, Robert, and Wm are not there, so try Warenford, Belford.
