Relatives
Catherine Garnons was left Colomendy Hall Loggerheads Llanferres, Mold, Denbighshire and came to live there with her brother Richard Garnons. Wilson had spent his last year there before his death in 1782, when it was the home of her godmother, Catherine Jones (1701-1786). Thomas Wright, Wilson's biographer, visited Colomendy Hall some time before 1824 and stated that he saw there 'several of Wilson's pictures in an unfinished state, with two or three merely in dead colour'. He mentioned the subjects of two and and added 'These pictures were brought by Wilson, upon his retiring from London'. In 1854 the Garnons bequeathed numerous Wilson works to the National Gallery, London. These have since been transferred to Tate, London.
