Hi, has anyone come across George Wright born abt 1866 in Chowdene, West Pelton?

Chowdene and West Pelton are two different places. The former north of Chester-le-Street and the latter west of Chester-le-Street.

I think I see the problem--like the 1871 census has the registration district where they were living as Chester le Street--but that is not the parish.  Chowdean (I have enough relatives from there) is in the Lamesley St. Andrew parish.  The parents are Thomas and Jane, correct? RG10/4995 folio 23 page 10?

I think the father Thomas was baptised along with 2 siblings William and Margaret  in Chester le Street 7 Sep 1831 s/o Thomas and Margaret, Basket maker, Chester le Street

Or is it a different Wright family?
