Douglas - or Daglass, Dagless or Dagloss?

John Dagless was a blacksmith living in Norfolk. He married Elizabeth Pearson and they has eight children:
Susannah, baptised 14 Apr 1816
William, bap 6 Dec 1819
Richard, bap 28 Dec 1834, born 29/11/1829
Thomas, bap 24 Feb 1822
John Pearson, bap 20 Mar 1814
Elizabeth, bap 9 Nov 1817
Harmer, bap 20 Apr 1834
Daniel, bap 28 Dec 1834, born 08/03/1826

All baptisms were in Burgh-next-Aylsham, Norfolk, England

John Pearson Dagless emigrated to Canada and died there. He married Mary Webb, and had a son, Thomas Pearson Douglas, born 1854 in Northumberland, Canada, who died in Bruce, Ontario, Canada. John Pearson Dagless Snr has been recorded as John Percy Douglass

I have a note that John Charles Daglass moved to Canada and changed his name (or it was changed for him) to Douglas. but who was he?

I have also noted this:
John Douglas/Douglass/Dagless  was born Northumberland, England, 1815, lived most of his life in Alnwyck, Northumberland. He was the son of John Dagless and Elizabeth Pearson. I think it must be wrong.

My question is this: was John Dagless, the blacksmith a Douglas?

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
