  From looking at various wills and manorial records for Eskdale and Wasdale, we believe that we have managed to connect the Wilson families in the two valleys.
From manorial records, in 1637 Henry Wilson inherited a tenancy in Eskdale following the death of his father Thomas Wilson, and Thomas Wilson inherited two tenancies at Wasdale Head following the death of his father Thomas Wilson, implying that Henry and Thomas were brothers.
In 1688 John Wilson inherited a tenancy in Eskdale following the death of his father Henry Wilson.
This John Wilson farmed at Brotherilkeld, Eskdale with his brother Edward. John died in 1690, leaving a widow Agnes and five children. In his will he left 5s to son Edward, 5s to daughter Elizabeth Brocklebank and her husband George, £8 to son John, and everything else to his son John and daughters Joyce and Jennet. The admin. bond names his widow Agnes and George Brocklebank to bring up John, Joyce and Jennet Wilson, who were minors.
John’s brother Edward died in 1695, he was a bachelor and left much of his estate to his nephews and nieces, his will also mentioned various Wilsons of Wasdale.
Joyce Wilson, daughter of John and Agnes, married Thomas Tyson of Borrowdale Place at Eskdale in 1690.

Thomas Wilson died at Wasdale Head in 1685, leaving a will. We believe that he was the great great grandfather of Ann Wilson who married Isaac Miller in 1772.
