William Winlow/Windlow about 1795 - 1842

A record shows William Winlow marrying Elizabeth Pearson on 19 February 1828 at Gateshead, Durham. Her father was George Pearson. His parents were Thomas Winley (Windlow) and Ann Grey

According to the 1841 census: William was recorded as aged 45 – born abt 1795  a mariner living with wife Elizabeth, age 40, living at Milbourne Place, North Shields.

Also recorded were daughters: Isabella, age 12,  Sarah Ann, age 7, sons: William, 6 yrs, George, 3 yrs and daughter Elizabeth, age 1 yr.

The surname on this census was WINLOW. However, in later censuses, the surname is recorded as WINDLOW.

This could possibly be due to the strong North-Eastern accent and might have been misspelled by the enumerators.

William’s youngest son, Joseph was born on 31 Jan 1843 – William is recorded as a Mariner and deceased on the birth certificate, although I have not found a death certificate for William  - yet!
