  • Notes 
    • Life Sketch

      William Wilkinson was born in Blackwell, Darlington, Durham and was later a prominent mercer in London. He served as Sheriff of London in 1539. He married Joan North, daughter of Roger North and brother of Edward North, 1st Lord Baron North.
      William Wylkynson, citizen and mercer of London, in his will dated 5/4/1543 (proved 21 Nov 1543), names his wife Johane, his four daughters, Thomasyn, Jan e, Frances and Christian, Symonde his brother, Alice Brawnson sister and 'tenne poundes' to amende the highways aboute the towne of Blakwell where I was born'. He is also named in the will of his nephew Richard Wilkinson 23/10/1542, mercer and citixen of London.
      Several online pedigrees suggest he was the son of Roger Wilkinson of Barnsley (memtioned in William Flowers "Visitation of Yorkshire" 1563 p 353), but this appears to be another William.
