Enlisted at Wooler, Northumberland.
Died in Egypt.
Born about 1881, at Lowick, Northumberland, the eldest child of Thomas Wilson (b. about 1852, at Lowick; a Blacksmith), by his wife, Emma Louisa Wilson (also b. about 1852, at Sheffield, Yorkshire).
The 1901 Census records Wilson, who was, then, an Apprentice Blacksmith, having a brother, George Frederick (b. about 1884; also an Apprentice Blacksmith), & two sisters, Isabella Gair (b. about 1882) & Elizabeth (b. 1887). All of the siblings were born at Lowick.
By 1911, Wilson had left the family home & only George (who had finished his apprenticeship &, then, was a Blacksmith) & Isabella remained living with their parents. The Census records Thomas & Emma Louisa having had seven children in their marriage, only four of who were still living. The family lived in four rooms, the address on the Census form simply saying 'Lowick, Beal, Northumberland'.
Husband to Jane A. Wilson however there's no obvious trace of either on the 1911 Census.
