Thank you to everyone for their help with this ancestor.
I unfortunately will have to leave it where it is at the moment, and take another look at this line in a few months.

Without the names of either of his parents on his death certificate, it will be difficult to identify the correct James Wilson with any certainty.

Hi
I am trying to find more information on James WIlson.
I have his death cert 07 November 1870 and according to his death cert he was married to a Mary Arnot, her death cert matches his.
Unfortunately neither parents name is given on his death cert.
Census info (1861) gives him being born in Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Have tried Scotlandspeople website to no avail for both birth and marriage

Thank you in advance
Joe
