James Daniel Wilson 3
 
A part of Scilly’s history continued yesterday as the newest member of the Wilson family was christened at Old Town Church.

James Daniel Wilson, son of Giles and Christine and grandson of Lady Mary has been named after his late grandfather James Harold Wilson, who was Prime Minister from 1964 to 1970 and from 1974 to 1976.

Lord Wilson is buried in Old Town Churchyard.

Lady Mary says she’s delighted that the family name will continue with his birth.

St Mary’s Chaplain, Canon Paul Miller, who conducted the service, said it was a great honour to be asked to christen James.

He said he knows how much the Wilson family love Scilly and their visits to their home here.

Old Town Church will always have a special place in their hearts, said Paul, and it’s very good to know that another Wilson will now continue the family association here.
