Hello Paul, 

You can find all of the Wilkinson profiles on Wikitree here: https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Wilkinson

You can also use the search function to see if a profile already exists for any of the Wilkinson ancestors you have already identified. I have several Wilkinsons from Northumberland in collateral lines in my tree (not yet added to Wikitree) so we may find that our ancestral paths cross at some stage. 

If you begin to add profiles for the ancestors you know then it will be easier for folks to see whether they connect up with your County Durham Wilkinsons.

Paul, Wilkinson is a fairly common name in NE England. Not quite sure why Frank has listed these particular ones. It would be better if you could tell us who you are researching so that we do not waste time on others.
Those Wilkinson's were the first ones that came up in searching for Wilkinson's who live in Durham, England at familysearch.org

First name would be a big help, as would name of spouse. A narrower time frame such as early 1800's or late 1800's, but birth year and marriage year and or death year would help pinpoint a much more specific answer.
We definitely need more information if we are going to help Paul. Picking the first ones on the list is a bit too random when you consider that in 1911 there were over 9700 Wilkinsons in County Durham.

It would be much more meaningful if you had a particular Wilkinson family, focused in your question. I have Wilkinson's in my family line from County Durham; they are only a few in the thousands that lived in the County in the 1800's.

We wish to help, but please be more specific.

I have literally just joined this site and know it was a long shot. I will be more specific when I get the hang of the site.

My thanks to those who have replied with a worthy effort.
Paul, Have you made any progress on your Wilkinson search? If you would like to add more specific information to your question we will probably be able to help you.
