Title

Wilson family Tree

Description

Charles Wilson, the manager at the Woodhead leadmine lived there around 1838/40 until 1871 when he moved to New Abbey to live with his son James Stewart Wilson who was the minister there.

The family tree starts with Charles' grandfather, William Wilson, born in 1702 who lived at Leadhills.

Much of the information has come from Germany from the descendants of Charles Wilson's son Peter who first went to Norway in 1852 and then to Germany where he settled permanently.

James Stewart Wilson was a highly respected minister at New Abbey for 47 years and in the church there is a wonderful stained glass window dedicated to the memory of him and his wife.

Also included are some fascinating sketches of Carsphairn and the leadmine in the 1890s drawn by Peter's daughter Isabella during a visit from Germany to visit her relations in Scotland.
