James married Elizabeth on 6 November 1866, you can see the church register entry at http://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/details/87e8c30023341. James is listed as being a widower in the church register. There is also a mention of James Wilson in connection with his son Humphrey,who died in WW1  on http://www.scarboroughsmaritimeheritage.org.uk/greatwar/f15-flanders-1915.php [it's about halfway down the page]. I hope this is of some help :)

Did anyone find any more about the first wife of Sergeant James Wilson please? Some sources say she was born Frances Haddock, others Isabella Hamilton. Does anyone know when and where James Wilson married his first wife, please and when she was killed by the tigers? James was born in Ballymoney, Ireland in 1827 and married his 2nd wife Elizabeth Worthington in Carlow in 1866. It is his first wife that has me stumped! I am descended from Martha Matilda Wilson Haddock, the daughter of his first wife. Amy help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Ballymoney, Co Antrim (Loughgill Parish)

There are two Ballymoneys in Co. Antrim- one in Islandmagee parish and the other in Ballymoney parish. I think you might mean Loughguile (Catholic) Parish which marches Ballymoney (Catholic) Parish-

Or do you mean Loughguile near Ballymoney town?

I'm only going by the earlier post by Blemdookie. I didn't realise that there were so many places called Ballymoney in Ireland or even within Co Antrim. I don't know where James Wilson married his first wife, but their daughter Martha Matilda Wilson was born in Sligo in 1849, although again, I don't know exactly where in Co Sligo. Perhaps his first wife was from Co Sligo? Or maybe there was an army barracks there? The search continues ,,,
