Wilson, Thomas, Sir -1775)

Sir Thomas Wilson, of West Wickham in Kent, was High Sheriff of Kent in 1760, and was knighted at the accession of George III in that year. The arms, crest and motto were confirmed to him by Lord Lyon in 1762. They had been granted to Thomas Wilson, merchant in Edinburgh, in 1674, who was probably Sir Thomas's grandfather. Sir Thomas was granted the quartering Argent a cross engrailed sable, the arms of Sinclair. Sir Thomas sold West Wickham in 1772 and was perhaps the Sir Thomas Wilson who the Gentleman's Magazine recorded as dying in Dean Street, Soho on 3 January 1775.
