Wilson, Mr
[1???-18??] In May 1856, the shabbily-dressed man went into the Crispin Inn, Halifax, claiming to have left Halifax 30 years before. He fascinated everyone with tales of his exploits during Army campaigns in India.

He said that his name was Wilson and asked about his family, including his late brother, Joseph, a blacksmith. He was told that his nephew, John Wilson, also a blacksmith, lived nearby, and John and his wife were summoned. They greeted the man who they had never met before, took him home, and fed and clothed him. Wilson said that he had a ton of luggage, which was being held up at Liverpool docks. This included valuable items, including gold nuggets which he had acquired from a wreck off the Cape of Good Hope.

Later, Wilson's sister, Mary, came to meet her long-lost brother. She asked him about their mutual relatives and important events in their family's past, but his answers did not convince her that this was really her brother. Mary decided to go to Liverpool to investigate the undelivered wealth, but there was no trace of Wilson's crates. Wilson learned of Mary's trip, and he hurriedly left his lodgings and was never again seen or heard of in Halifax
