Thomas Wilson (1773–1858) was a Tyneside poet, from Low Fell in Gateshead. His most famous work, an example of Tyneside Dialect Literature, is The Pitman's Pay, originally published between 1826 and 1830. He went on to write many other songs and pieces of prose, most of which were published by George Routledge & Sons of The Broadway, Ludgate, London. One of his best known and loved works was 'The Weshin’ Day', and his last was 'The Market Day' written towards the end of his life.
