Wilson/Willson/Wilsone(etc)

Journal by marbra

It would appear(through DNA testing) that my WILSON family originated in Ireland. Sometime and several times during 150 AD to 800 AD during wars between Ireland and Scotland peoples from Ireland settled and intermarried with the local Scots and Picts..Firstly probably around what is now Ayr and spreading out from there.

From research the Wilson name could have been Uilleam (gaelic)then anglicised.

My Wilson's are traced from New Zealand(emigrated 1800's) to Lincolnshire(moved there 1600's) although other family members were already there.
They moved from Scotland to Lincolnshire, probably stopping on the way at Penrith.
