James Wilson (zoologist)

James Wilson of Woodville FRSE was a 19th century Scottish zoologist. He was the youngest son of John Wilson, a gauze manufacturer, his wife Margaret Sym, was born at Paisley 20 November 1794, his father having died during James's first year, the family moved to Edinburgh, where he was educated. In 1811 he began to study for the law. Wilson joined the Wernerian Society when just 17. In 1816 Wilson visited the Netherlands, Germany and Paris, he returned to Paris to purchase Louis Dufresne's collection of birds for the museum of Edinburgh University. In 1819 he visited Sweden, soon after which symptoms of lung disease appeared, he resided in Italy during 1820–1. In 1824 he married Isabella Keith, settled down at Woodburn, Dalkeith near Edinburgh, where he wrote and worked on scientific pursuits. Losing his wife in 1837, he took a winter residence in Edinburgh, he purchased Woodville in south Edinburgh in 1838. In 1827 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, his proposer being Robert Jameson.

From 1850 until death he was Curator for the Society. In 1841, with Sir Thomas Dick Lauder, he made a series of excursions round the coasts of Scotland, at the request of the Fisheries Board, to study the natural history of the herring. Other trips followed at intervals between 1843 and 1850, fishing excursions inland. In 1854 he was offered but declined the chair of natural history in the Edinburgh University, vacated by the death of Edward Forbes, he died at Woodville House on Canaan Lane in Morningside, Edinburgh on 18 May 1856.

She is buried with him in Dean Cemetery. Wilson was one of the first to have used the term "evolution" in the context of biological speciation. In 1830, he used this term in a paper on the history of goat and sheep, he wrote: Whatever dreams the mystical imaginings of some modern philosophers may have given rise to regarding the origin of species, the gradual evolution of one form of animal life as connected with or consequent upon another, it is not a bad rule, though a tolerably old fashioned one, to believe that in the origin of species nothing was left to such casual intercourses, but rather that every thing was not only divinely planned, but directly performed, by the same simple though Omnipotent fiat which gathered together the waters under the heaven, made the dry land appear, with all the beautiful, infinitely varied, most harmoniously adapted inhabitants of either element. Wilson's use of the term predated Charles Lyell in 1832. Wilson had rejected the evolution of species for creationism.
