ANTIQUE PAINTINGS
He was born in Lambeth, London around 1818, where he was also baptised in 1833. John James married Elizabeth Parker in 1845 and started his family with the birth (in Bayswater, London) of Elizabeth Parker Wilson in the same year.

John James Wilson exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts (55 paintings), the British Institution (57 paintings), Royal Society of British Artists (384 paintings), the Royal Scottish Academy (106 paintings) Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts (3 paintings), and the Royal Hibernian Academy (14 paintings).

John James Wilson died aged 57 on 30 January 1875. Initially, it seems unclear where he died. The Free BMD records seem to indicate that his father (year of death 1855), John James, as well as his son Vernon (year of death 1861) all died in the small village of Elham, Kent. When John James's wife Elizabeth died aged 73 in 1901, she was buried along with her husband and their son Vernon, and her name included on the gravestone. Under John James Wilson's name there is the following inscription, 'FOR 30 YEARS A MEMBER OF THE INCORPORATED SOCIETY OF BRITISH ARTISTS' (which became the RBA).
