Thank you everyone. Very helpful. Sarah Wilson was my ggrandma, I have a photo of her, she lived to be 91 or so.

The father James Wilson is a bit of a mystery, though he was a solicitor he doesn;t seem to have a will. I cannot properly identify his parents either.

I have lots of info about James's wife Winifred McDonald and her ancestry.

The fact that you can’t find a Will for James online doesn’t necessarily mean there wasn’t one, merely that it didn’t go to Probate.

The "Margaret" was wrecked in the Bay of Biscay on 29/11/1877.

16 men drowned that day (per Ancestry), and apparently others died the following day or later.
