Surnames used to get changed in the early years when people couldn't read and write so they depended on the Enumerator to write it down.
Jimmy lived Jutland Ave/Whickham Rd junction. He had at least 2 older brothers. One was Maxie Walsh who became well known as an Officer in Hebburn Sea Cadets. We had Welsh, Walsh & Welch surnames in Hebburn which complicates things for you.
