Sue,

I just ran across this information regarding Wilsons. Alexander Webb Jr. the son of Alexander Webb and Margaret Arden who was Mary Arden's (the mother of Wm. Shakespeare) sister, married a Mary Wilson. Alexander (my husband's ancestor)was thus Shakespeare's first cousin.

Alexander Jr. and Mary Wilson's son Richard Webb married a Grace Wilson (perhaps a cousin?)

Perhaps this is your Wilson connection to Shakespeare.

Barbara
