James Wilson, Born: about 1727, Tillicoultry
« on: Monday 26 September 11 04:28 BST (UK) »
So far I have been able to trace my Scottish ancestry back to James Wilson.  I have the following information -

James Wilson
  Born: about 1727, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
Margaret Harrower
  Born: about 1731, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Married: 28 May 1752, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Children: Mary, James, Robert, Charles, Alexander, Elisabeth, and Charlotte

Does anyone have any additional information on James Wilson, his parents, or the family tree further back in time?  Any help is appreciated!

Cheers, caliscot

Thanks very much for the reply, Seoras.  Unfortunately from the information that I've been able to find so far I've only seen one child listed for James Wilson and Margaret Harrower, their son Robert.  Sorry that my original post on their Children was unclear.  I have the following information for Robert -

Robert Wilson
  Born: about 1757, Larbert, Stirlingshire
  Christening: 8 May 1757, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
Isobel Laird
  Born: 28 Apr 1754, Falkirk, Stirlingshire
  Married: about 1777, Larbert, Stirlingshire
  Children: Peter, Grizel, William, Adam, Isobel, Robert, James, and Margaret

Any additional information on James Wilson from my original post is appreciated!

Cheers, caliscot

Seoras, upon doing some further research, I think that I spoke too soon earlier and for that I apologize.  I have recently been able to find the following children for James Wilson and Margaret Harrower - Mary, James, Robert, Charles, Alexander, Elisabeth, and Charlotte.  I have the following information for the children -

Mary Willson
  Baptism/Christening: 11 Feb 1753, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Parents: James Willson and Margarat Harrower
James Willson
  Baptism/Christening: 19 Jul 1755, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Parents: James Willson and Margret Harrower
Robert Willson
  Baptism/Christening: 08 May 1757, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Parents: James Willson and Margret Harrower
Charles Willson
  Baptism/Christening: 15 Apr 1759, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Parents: James Willson and Margret Harrouer
Alexander Willson
  Baptism/Christening: 19 Apr 1761, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Parents: James Willson and Margret Harrower
Elisabeth Wilson
  Baptism/Christening: 10 Mar 1765, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Parents: James Wilson and Margret Harrower
Charlotte Wilson
  Baptism/Christening: 12 Apr 1767, Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire
  Parents: James Wilson and Margaret Harrouer

So, yes, I do now have those other children and more.  I included the parents names in the above info to show the spelling differences.  Any additional information on James Wilson (Willson?) is appreciated!
