This name was written on the death certificate of his son William Wilson.

He was found in the 1841 Scottish Census in a household that was in Canongate which was the main road between Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile up to the Castle so Palace Yards would probably have been adjacent to Holyrood Palace itself (possibly where the modern parliament is sited).
