Cecil Wilson (1860-1941) was the third missionary Bishop of Melanesia from 1894 to 1911, and subsequently the second Bishop of Bunbury from 1918 to 1937. An 1882 graduate of Jesus College, Cambridge, Wilson served parishes in England before his consecration. He launched the fifth Southern Cross (ship) in 1903 and advocated for the movement of the center of Anglican life in Melanesia to the Solomon Islands from Norfolk Island.

Wilson is listed in the Calendar of saints (Church of the Province of Melanesia).
