Hi Ed,
Interested to see your connection, I am descended from Mary Wilson 1779, sister to your William 1786.
There are some questions on the family which maybe we could communicate directly on, hence I will also send you a personal message.
I can include the information of John Wilson will in that

Chris

I too may have an interest in this.  I have a Samuel Wilson married at Farnsfield 1799, died there in 1847 aged 74. He's also given as 65 in 1841 census. I have not so far been able to track his birth, but your reply #6 offers a clue. I have an old version of the NFHS CDs, but Farnsfield was not then included. I've noticed that some others of the childen you list from Thomas's will don't seem to appear in available birth indexes. Does anyone have a later set of NFHS data, which does now apparently include Farnsfield ? If so could the children of Thomas be checked ?

I think I'm looking at 1773 +/-5. Problem I have is the most likely baptism  (on age / date grounds) is Blidworth, 1773, son of James and Elizabeth but there is a second baptism 1778 Sutton in Ashfield, parents also James and Elizabeth, though no intervening burial. So 2 families with same names for mother & father or a missing burial? Also my Samuel named his first 2 children Thomas & Sarah. I am unable to trace christenings for many of those Chris names as children of Thomas & Sarah, but have found marriages for  Millicent (1775, Egmanton) and Ann (1790, Farnsfield).

There exists a silver salver donated in 1698 by William Wilson (Gent.) to the Parish of Hockerton. It is church property and may be quite valuable but may be of interest to the family.
I wish to have no involvement other than to bring it to your attention.
Reply if you wish to express an interest and I can send a photo.
Best wishes, JP
