Hi both,
Thanks very much for your information,
So I have John & Eizabeth with the correct family as per Johns will with children at Edingley, probably moving to Farnsfield where Elizabeth died, and according to his will, so did John, I wonder where he was buried, and also can we trace their marriage ?
The Caunton baptisms to William & Sarah, I had some of but it has confirmed Catherine and Christopher for me, Robert I did not know, he was not mentioned in Williams will whereas the others were, he possibly died pre 1803. Also in the seqiuence of children in Willliam Wilsons will, seemingly by age , there were 2 later children, John and Joseph but their baptisms not listed
Thanks for all this, I shall pursue the new information, may be back with another query though  !!

Hi,
A follow up query to this is that I also found a will of a Thomas Wilson died 1797 Farnsfield with the will written in 1792.
Beneficaries in this were wife Sarah Wilson and children, Mary Hill, John Wilson, Millicent Cordwell, Ann Clarke, Thomas Wilson,Richard Wilson,Samuel Wilson an Frances Wilson (Daughter)
Could this be the father of John , John seemingly having been born pre 1720 from his children
Can we find any clues from any BMD`s you may have access to

A few Farnsfield burials

14.2. 1797 - Thomas Wilson
9.1. 1786 - Sarah Wilson wife of Thomas
4.9. 1777 - William Wilson son of Thomas & Sarah
29.6. 1742 - Elizabeth Wilson, spinster

There is a marriage 26.2. 1787 Thomas Wilson & Sarah Wogden, which could have been Thomas's second marriage.

Hi Chris,
I'm new to the site. It looks like we're researching the same Wilson family. My connection is via William Wilson (b. 1786), son of William (1744-1803). I was wondering where you found the will for John Wilson you mentioned as I'd love to be able to get hold of a copy too... with thanks, Ed
