Signature of Joseph Wanlace at his 1805 Tynemouth marriage to Jane (Oxley) Pinder

Signatures of Peter & Lancelot Wanless/Wandless

Signatures of Peter & Lancelot Wanless/Wandless

signature of the Thomas Wandlass who witnessed the will of Peter Wandlass in 1790
signature of Thomas Wandlass from his will written shortly before he died in Monkwearmouth Shore in 1807
This certainly looks like the same person signed both documents, and would seem to establish a link between the family of Peter Wandlass. Tony Palmer also has a photocopy of the marriage of Thomas Wandlass & Elizabeth Bell at Boldon 21 Dec 1800 and Thomas’s signature matches that on the will of 1807, and Elizabeth’s (i.e. the Eliz. bit) matches that of Eliz. Wandlass on the will of Elizabeth Wandlass in 1820.
 

William Wanless & Ann Robinson marriage, 1857, Bishopwearmouth, DUR

 

William Wanless & Mary Ann Gibson marriage, 1833, Longbenton, NBL

 

Ann Wanless & John Anderson marriage, 1818, Longbenton, NBL

Note the similarities between Ann and William’s (above) signatures – the small loop at the beginning of the W.

 

Margaret Wanless & Samuel Baird marriage, 1825, Longbenton. Margaret’s “W” looks a lot like Ann’s “W” above, but John’s “W” doesn’t share the same small loop at the beginning. We don’t know if John is Margaret’s father, brother, or another relative.

 

John Wanless & Eliza Moor, marriage, 1841, Newcastle All Saints, NBL

 

John Wanless (brother of Isabella Wanless, son of Edward Wanless & Sarah Hall) at Isabella’s marriage to John Shotton, 1850, Longbenton
