Hi Rob G

Sorry for not replying sooner,Havent had internet for a couple of months.

Jane Ann Wilson was my Gr.Aunt, as far as I know she married her cousin Abraham.

Jane Ann,s parents were Thomas Wilson and Margaret Jamieson

Abraham,s parents were James Wilson and Annie Lee

Margaret Jamieson died in the showground love st. Paisley,I think she must have been travelling with a fair.

Jane Ann,s brother James Wilson(my gr.granda) married a Jane Watson,she was of the travelling people too,


On my grandmothers death certificate, it says that James Wilson her father was a horse dealer.

 hi ,florabrooks. have a look on family search.org. type in william mitchell in name box and  england 1881 in the census in bury lancs you can find staying with william mitchell, a joe  vasey age 22. bella age 21. and son james. the names are down as vasey.but i know it should be veray,as my g g mother told me when i was little we were related to the vareys and that they used to stay with her husband peter in bury lancs .by the way i was 12 years old when my g.g.mother died,she was 88 years old.she married the boy called peter in the household.she said the vareys were full cousin to peter.and she knew them.   by the way my ,g.uncle abraham wilson. was a car dealer in kilmarnock as was his son and grandson but he hawked also and would deal in anything.i cannot find anything on his father jim wilson married to annie lee.except that he is in carlisle cemetary but did know abraham and  his  brothers jack and jim wilson.and sons tom and jim wilson.there are others but not sure about them.but i think its got to be the same famliy,it would be interesting if you can find anything more,  i can tell you  my james wilson was wed three times i belive,once in his seventys. rob

Hi RobG

Thanks for replying,You mentioned that Abraham was a car dealer among other things,I remember my gran Mary saying her brother,I think Jimmy was his name , was also a car dealer either in Greenock or Paisley

I remember when I was a wee girl seeing him and his wife they had 2 wee yorkie dogs

My aunt say,s that one of my grans brothers married ? bunce do you know any connection to a Bunce family

I dont know if you are a member of Genes Reunited I have my family tree on there.

I am still looking for any leads to the modern Wilson families.
