Charles & George Wilson

I'm looking for any information on Charles Wilson and his son George, they lived at No 9 Collegiate Crescent, Charles is listed as living there in 1862. They were both coach builders but I believe son George went bankrupt after he took over the business after his father either died or retired.

Re: Charles & George Wilson

Hi Vin,

Struggling to find anything on Charles or George, but there is an article in the
Sheffield Daily Telegraph, 25 May 1907. It is about the death of Mr William Wilson
aged 72 years, that took place at 9 Collegiate Crescent. He was the joint founder
of one of the oldest carriege building concerns in the city. He and his father
began the business on the Moor Head 55 years ago and it is 27 years ago that
the business moved to Cambridge Street and his father died a little later.
His wife pre deceased his some years ago. He leaves two married daughters.
The funeral will take place at 12-15 on Tuesday at the General Cemetery.

Hannah Martha Wilson was buried 9 Nov 1893 aged 58 years, wife of William,
coach builder. They are both in the same grave, number AA60.
