Would be interested in what other information you have on Thomas Wilson. He is my 4th grt grandfather on my maternal side.  Born abt 1767 Derbyshire, Leicestershire married Elizabeth Evans[1778-1851] 11 Oct 1801 and died 29 Dec 1840 at Worthington Field, Breedon on the Hill, Derbyshire, Leicestershire.  His GRO death cert showed him as a Late Publican, present at death Mary Wilson, daughter.
Children William 1802-1814, Thomas 1804-1877, Elizabeth* 1807-1870[married George Proudman* 19 July 1835], John 1809-1884, Jane 1814-1895, Mary 1816-1905, William 1818-1884.
Presume his father was William as 2 sons called William.  [* = maternal connection]
Have never found anything on his birth so would be interested if you have uncovered any other information about his parents.

Thank you

I'm inquiring specifically about Jane Wilson (1814-1895) who is shown as the daughter of Thomas Wilson. Can anyone confirm if this is the same Jane Wilson who married John Webb in 1846 in Burton-Upon-Trent?

Thank you for the reply. So, Jane and John Webb are my direct ancestors and were the parents of Frances Jane Webb who married William James Turner in Burton-Upon-Trent. The Turners emigrated to the United States in about 1883. While I've been able to find some information about these families it's rather sparse - possibly because I'm researching from the US. Judging from the posts here though it seems like not a lot is really known about this Wilson family regardless. Do you have any additional details that could be provided? While I'm looking for names, dates and locations, I am also especially interested in any biographical information - who they were, what they did, etc., as well as pictures of any family members. Does the book about the pottery provide any information about the family and their involvement?

Hi there,

There is quite a lot of information on the Wilson family thanks to their involvement in Coleorton Pottery.  I strongly recommend the book "Coleorton Pottery 1835-1938" by Samuel T Stewart, I helped provide some family history information on the Wilson family for this book and it contains very many interesting details about our ancestors lives. Samuel Stewart has done an excellent job!

Unfortunately there has been no progress on tracing the family any further back from Jane's father, Thomas Wilson who was born 1767 in Donisthorpe, Leicestershire.  How interesting that Frances Jane & her family emigrated to the US, no wonder I have not been able to trace her after the 1881 census.  I would love any information you may have about the Turner family after this date to add to my tree.

Jane's brothers continued to run the Pottery after their fathers death and made a very good business of it.  Jane was a beneficiary in her brother Thomas' will, he left her 850 which would have the same spending worth of 41,063.50 today.  I can send you a copy if you like, send me a personal message.

All the best
Susan
