    Notes 
    • Birth record:
      4 Oct 1818      Wanles, James Keiller, child of James a weaver & Jean White named after J. K. Senior & Junior 27 Sep.

      No obvious Keillor/White/Wanless connection in IGI. But a James Keillor was the father of Margaret Keillor who married James Wanless a shoemaker in 1834 in Dundee.

      Not found in 1841 Dundee census; probably at sea, per seaman's tickets.

      In June 1837, James was on the ship Williams - is the below a relation?
      William Wanless, 19, Dundee, boy, 4 Aug 1837 Williams
      Or is this just an error and this record is also for James ?
