Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of digging on my mothers side of the family. And I found a long line of Wilsons that I traced back a few hundred years. It appears that they bobbed and weaved from northern England in Yorkshire and up to Glasgow and the Fife region of Scotland. I looked up the history of the Yorkshire Wilsons and suggests that if you go way back, they descended from the Danes. Does anyone know if these Wilsons have any connection to the Gunns or is it a separate branch or clan? Here is the line below that I found. Looks like they were barons and earls:Thomas Wilson (1355 – 1397)21st great-grandfatherSir Thomas, Baron of Temple Wilson Wilson (1380 – 1430)Son of Thomas WilsonSir Thomas VII “Talbot” Wilson, Earl of Cuper, Baron Wilson of Temple (1401 – 1475)Son of Sir Thomas, Baron of Temple Wilson WilsonSir John II “Robert”, Earl of Cuper, Burgess of Edinburgh Wilson (1425 – 1475)Son of Sir Thomas VII “Talbot” Wilson, Earl of Cuper, Baron Wilson of TempleSir John, of Cupar and Fife Wilson (1450 – 1492)Son of Sir John II “Robert”, Earl of Cuper, Burgess of Edinburgh WilsonSir Thomas, of Strubby Wilson (1470 – 1532)Son of Sir John, of Cupar and Fife WilsonWilliam Cumberworth Wilson (1492 – 1587)Son of Sir Thomas, of Strubby WilsonSir Robert Wilson (1520 – 1568)Son of William Cumberworth WilsonSir Robert Wilson (1550 – 1597)Son of Sir Robert WilsonWilliam “The Temperor” Wilson (1578 – 1615)Son of Sir Robert WilsonWilliam Wilson (1600 – 1663)Son of William “The Temperor” WilsonJoan Wilson (1615 – 1655)Daughter of William Wilson

Surname meaning for Wilson, Earl of Cuper, Baron Wilson of Temple

English and French: occupational name or habitational name for someone who was employed at or lived near one of the houses (‘temples’) maintained by the Knights Templar, a crusading order so named because they claimed to occupy in Jerusalem the site of the old temple (Middle English, Old French temple, Latin templum). The order was founded in 1118 and flourished for 200 years, but was suppressed as heretical in 1312. English: name given to foundlings baptized at the Temple Church, London, so called because it was originally built on land belonging to the Templars. Scottish: habitational name from the parish of Temple in Edinburgh, likewise named because it was the site of the local headquarters of the Knights Templar.
