Thanks for this reply. There is a John Wilson who is a brother of George and Josiah but hid DofB is 1865 and DofD is 1916. My grandfather was George and we have found details on him but not his siblings. I append an extract from the Family Tree to show the siblings and the link to my great great grandfather.  Does this help? I welcome your suggestions.
Thanks  Noel Wilson


I’ve been watching this thread for many years now and I just thought I’d throw into the arena as townlands are being mentioned. My that my family came from Loughnafin/ Rockfield my grandfather Charles Haughton Wilson b 1883 was a farmer in Killeshandra, although I think he had a corn mill in Springfield/ Cessagh/Corradarren.
Charles was the son of John Wilson (b1854)who was married to Mary Jane Haughton (b1861), he married Eliza Morrison (b1884)
Don’t know if there any links here.

Wilson Genealogical Collections: Vol. IV. Abstracts from parish registers on parochial returns relating to the Wilson and allied families, Berry, Molloy, Hallowes, Fetherston, Lackey, McMorran, etc.


Dublin: National Library of Ireland, n.3092, p.2713

Can you please share what the Fetherston connection here is? I’m a Fetherston whose ancestors came from near Castlepollard, Westmeath, however there were cousins in Cavan. Thanks

Dear Caswellm,

You were looking for Wilsons of Cavan.  Here is another.  Rachel Wilson (born about 1809 in "Ireland") married Edward Harrison of Cootehill, Cavan, about 1830.  They had an eldest son James Harrison and then in 1832 sailed for Canada, settling in Peel County Ontario.  His siblings were on Wolfe Island, Ontario.  The Harrison family was Presbyterian, as were many Wilsons I have come across.

I know nothing about Rachel's origins.  Im putting together a tree, I rely heavily on the Irish naming tradition.  Rachel named her four daughters in this order: Margaret, Mary, Jane, Rachel.  If Edward and Rachel senior followed that tradition-and his parents and uncle did not, but cousins did--then this might hold true.  Maybe Rachel's mother was Margaret, her eldest sister was Mary, she herself should have been Jane, and a favorite sister would have been Rachel.  (But you see that Jane and Rachel are switched.)

The mother's name for Edward was Frances, a name not used by Edward and Rachel for their daughters.  Good luck with your Wilsons.  I have many.
