Dean, Evan and Charles, 2009

 

 

Dean, Evan and Charles are the most recent generation in the Wilson-Anderson family tree.

 

Their forbears in this tree are primarily of Scottish stock with only one branch from elsewhere, from Ireland, that may have been a multi-generational detour from Scotland to the Antipodes anyway.

 

The Wilson roots are in the Borders, their backgrounds on the land, in the mills, and wherever there was work to support their families.

 

The Andersons came from Angus in the east and Ross-shire in the West, meeting in Dunedin, New Zealand in the C19th. 

 

Subsequent generations have maintained the tradition of mobility. Who knows where Dean, Evan and Charles might wander.
