James Wilson Ancestry Pollockshaws Glasgow

This afternoon, I am departing from my 'normal' tombstone based records. Earlier today I visited Greenbank House, Newton Mearns, Glasgow which is a stately home and in the care of the National Trust. On the wall of the dining room is a Wilson family tree dating back to 1750. This family, being based in Lochwinnoch, has nothing to do with Greenbank House; the family tree was left to the National Trust who thought Greenbank an appropriate place to display the information.

James Wilson ( 1750-1830) was the youngest of nine children of John Wilson, a farmer of Barnaigh Farm near Lochwinnoch. James was a cooper based in Pollockshaws, Glasgow. He was married to Margaret Blackburn in 1782.
