Wilson, James (1851-1922)

Family

James was born on 19 March 1851 at Methley, Yorkshire, to parents George, who worked the land, and Mary. He was baptised on 27 April 1851 at St Oswald, Methley.

Before entering the ministry James was a coal miner (1871)

The 1881 census return records James as a widower, but I have not been able to unambiguously identify his wife. I have also not been able to identify any subsequent family in Australia, Can anyone point me in the right direction?

James died in 1922 at Balwyn, Victoria, Australia
