WILSON FAMILY HISTORY - Scotland - New Zealand - Australia
Welcome to our WILSON Family History Website.
About this website:
- The WILSON Family History Data on this site commences around 1720 in Kennet Village, Clackmannanshire Scotland.
- The WILSON family moved to Dunfermline (Fifeshire) in the early 1800’s.
- Coal mining seems to have been the major source of work/income since the 1700’s.
- The family moved from Dunfermline to the Forth Iron Works near Oakley/Carnock around 1845 and lived at the Works site.
- The Forth Iron Works slowed production in the late 1850’s and this saw the family moving to Armadale in West Lothian. The WILSON family lived in North Street Armadale for many years – descendants were still living in North Street up to the 1960’s
- Other WILSON family descendants live in the West Lothian area, mainly Bathgate and Linlithgow.
- Some members of the WILSON family immigrated to New Zealand, Australia and the USA.
- WILSON descendants in New Zealand generally live in the South Island – Oamaru, Christchurch, etc.
- WILSON descendants in Australia generally live in and around Melbourne or in regional country areas such as Shepparton and Kyneton.
- We are aware that some WILSON descendants immigrated to the USA in the early 1900’s. Records from Ellis Island show that the Christine WILSON/BAXTER and family took up residence in Braddock Philadelphia. No further information on the BAXTER family has been located.
- Christina WILSON/BAXTER grew up in Dunfermline, Fifeshire. Her father was Henry WILSON (Grandfather’s brother). I am confident there are many WILSON relatives living in the Dunfermline area, and would love to establish some links.
- We are always keen to communicate with any member of the WILSON clan who may have some connection.
- As mentioned, we are keen to establish a link with the Baxter
family who immigrated to the USA in 1909.
Christina (Wilson) Baxter, daughter of Henry Wilson and Mary Sharp of Dunfermline Fifeshire, married William (Morris) Baxter in 1904. The family immigrated to Braddock in PA in 1909. No further information is known.
