Gilson is a hamlet in the North Warwickshire district of Warwickshire, England. It is known to some residents as 'Gil'. Gilson was once an agricultural hamlet mid way between Water Orton and Coleshill. It dates from the Anglo-Saxon period and is first documented in 1232 AD. It is now largely a residential area due to the nearby M42 motorway and the changes in British agriculture. The 18th century Gilson Hall still exists and is the home of the Townshend family, famous for their dairy herds.
