Samuel Wilson and John Turner

QUESTION: Is Samuel Wilson the younger the same merchant as in Samuel Wilson and Company, mentioned in an affidavit by the publique notary Frederick Ixem of London, who deposed "On the behalfe of Mr Sam:Wilson and Company touching the Vosse"?

A "Samuel Wilson" and a "John Turner" were two of twenty-three petitioners in a "Humble petition of the merchants trading for Spain", dated September 20th 1655[1]

The latter Samuel Wilson's company included the London merchant John Turner, who may have been in business in Suffolk Lane, off Thames Street, in 1677.[2]
