James Wilson was born at Cumnock, Ayrshire, Scotland in 1837 and emigrated to Van Diemen's Land in 1858. Six years after arriving at Launceston he was appointed Chief Constable of the South Longford Police District on 14 March 1864. This area was later renamed the Great Lake Police District. A residence was erected at The Steppes in the area, so named by James Wilson after a small settlement near his former home at Glasgow. Later, in about 1888 another police house was built nearby to The Steppes property and Wilson moved with his growing family into this new property. Wilson continued his policing duties in the area until 31 December 1894 when he was discharged as a result of a reduction in the police establishment numbers however he was re-appointed as a Special Constable on the 16th of January 1899 and continued to serve until his final discharge on 30 June 1903 due to his position being made redundant. James Wilson suffered a stroke and died on 2 September 1922.
