Arthur Thurlbourn Wilton (b. 1851), was the second son of Joseph Wilton and Ann Thurlbourn. Listed in his father's household in Great Dunmow, aged 10, in 1861 and again at 20, in 1871, after the death of his father in 1873, Arthur was next found, at 30, in 1881, in the household of his elder brother, Edwin Joseph Wilton, at the Outfitters Shop, High Street, Great Dunmow.

Edwin then moved to Brighton and it seems Arthur remained in Great Dunmow alone. He appears to have escaped listing in 1891, but in 1901, Arthur T Wilton (50) Clothiers Assistant, was a Lodger at The Brook, Great Dunmow. 

In 1911, Arthur (60) Outfitter and Clothier, was a Boarder in Market Street, Great Dunmow - now Market Place - that runs from Star Lane to the High Street/Stortford Road. (A "Lodger" pays for a room only. A "Boarder" pays for a room and meals.) The 1914 Electoral Register placed him in Star Lane.

Arthur Thurlbourn Wilton died at 72 in 1923, having never married.
