    Notes 
    • Maiden name from son Charles's death cert, which says she was b. Northumberland. Maiden name & birthdate & place in family bible. Maiden name also on son Isaac Wanless's marriage cert.
      Pedigree chart of Paul Fyffe Wanless says her father was Isaac Brown, a blacksmith who was b. abt 1816, that at the time of her marriage she resided at Marley Hill, Whickham, that her mother's maiden name was Goffard, and that Isaac Brown's father was a market gardener at Thurby, Cumberland. We don't yet know the sources of these bits of information.
      Marley Hill, Whickham, and Gateshead are just across the river on the Durham side from Willington, NBL (now Tyne & Wear). There is also a Willington in County Durham, a few miles southwest of Durham City and a few miles west of Bishop Middleham where her husband was born. There is a Thursby (not Thurby) in Cumberland a few miles southwest of Carlisle.
