My Scottish Wilson’s are from Banff and Marnoch. That sort of area. Anyone else with Scottish Wilson’s from there?
Hi everyone, my husband is the Wilson line, originating from Kendal, Westmoreland with Isaac Wilson in 1655, but most probably his family line is from Scotland. He was luckly enough to find quite a bit of information about this line as they owned land and a ‘Hall” at Forrest Hall in Longbenton, Newcastle Upon Tyne, in saying that as with all…[Read more]

William was in the British Army and fought in the Napoleonic Wars. He was badly injured and retired from the Army as Colour Sergeant in 1820.
His wife Maria De Jesus De Costa-Reis (Reys) was born in…[Read more]
Hi GenP, I live near Port Macquarie, if you think there is a grave still. If you know if he is buried in the original cemetery in town I am happy to take a photo for you. I am going away for a few weeks, to help my parents, but can do on my return for you. Judy x
Hi Judy, thank you for your kind offer. I actually have photos of William & Maria’s grave.
They are in the old cemetery at the end of Horton St (I think). My maternal line all lived in the Port Macquarie and Rollands Plains area and my mum’s fathers side were from around Kempsey.
Great to hear… x

It talks about her family history and claims that the Wilson family were a rich land owning family based in Lancashire.

I am stuck in Tennessee with my Wilsons … Interestingly though, today I was working my way through some of the family trees of my DNA matches with Wilson ancestry … one of those has a Wilson family line from Accrington, Lancashire, England. I haven’t figured out how I connect to this person yet … it may or may not have something to do with…[Read more]
When I joined, I said I was surrounded by Wilsons in different branches of my family tree, I’m different countries. I’ve attached two screenshots so you can see, with relationships. The known and “close one” is a Great Aunt who married and lived in my hometown in Australia. For your info.
