    Notes 
    • There is a James md. to Jane Gordon with a child born Sep 1875 living at 3 Richmond Ct, Edinburgh, in the Scottish Church Records database who may be a nephew (or a son not listed with his family in 1861?), or even this James with a 2nd wife - he is a journeyman baker and lives at a similar address to Wm Ramsay Wanless.

      Not found in 1841 census at ScotlandsPeople unless he is the 13 yr old James living with a Bell family in Edinburgh.
