1871 Census

A stray Wilson appears on the Redmire 1871 census:

Name Relationship Age Occupation Birthplace
MOORE James Head, Married 57 Clogger Redmire
MOORE Maria Wife, Married 54 Preston
MOORE James Son, Unmarried 19 Carrier Redmire
MOORE Octabes Son, Unmarried 15 Labourer Redmire
MOORE Maria Daughter 13 Scholar Redmire
MOORE Tunstil Son 11 Labourer Redmire
WILSON James Lodger, Unmarried 44 Game keeper Kendal

A James Wilson appears on the 1881 census at 22 Peppercorn Lane in Kirkland, Westmorland aged 54 born in Kendal. But this James is married, and has children aged 16 to 23. They could be the same James, but that implies there are two James' born in Kendal to differentiate, a task not undertaken here.

1901 Census

In 1901, Henry and Ann are living at No.1 Railway Cottage:

Name Relationship Age Occupation Birthplace
WILSON Henry Head, Married 56 Railway Porter Leeming
WILSON Ann Wife, Married 58 Morton-on-Swale

Henry has made quite a career as a railway porter, as he was in the same profession in 1881, living in Leeming village with his wife and young children.
