Looking for descendants of Sir James Arthur Wilson?

He was born in Leeds in 1877 and become Chief Constable of Cardiff. He married Annie E. Lloyd in around 1900 and was awarded an MBE, CBE and OBE. When he died he was also a barrister-in-law.

I know he had at least two children Eric Lloyd Wilson and Arthur Roy Wilson. They are both decease. I have informarion that he might have had a daughter who was known as Mrs Clifford Turner. They are all from the Cardiff area.

I know their were grandsons and i am hoping that i can find them....please help

    You are working down the tree, so 1911 census and have you looked at the bmd indexes which you may find the children on and their marriage partners, once you have that you can then look for any children they may have had in the same indexes, it will also give you the record number so you will know which parish to look for the records to enable you to find more....all these links are on this website in the links page, National Archive, census websites, freebmd index & census, genuki so you can find out what records are available in the area you are searching and the local records office...the Welsh assembly via the councils/Universities/FH societies have funded lots of FH research and uploading for online researchers in recent years, Burkes peerage and the College of Arms are worth looking at as he was Knighted he also may or may not have applied for a Coat of Arms and if so this eldest child and their eldest son may or may not have applied to use those Arms , those links are also available on that site http://familytimeline.webs.com/apps/links/ I would also look at the Police archives http://www.southwalespolicemuseum.org.uk/en/conten... and police press archive http://www.south-wales.police.uk/cy/content/cms/am... also look at their website links which may give you other good websites for information

    Add: Inspector J A Wilson of the Glamorgan Police Force was appointed Chief Constable of the new borough police force, and commenced his duties on Saturday 15th August 1908, at a salary of £250 per annum. So he worked for Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan South Wales http://www.alangeorge.co.uk/historyofmerthyrpolice...
