This seems very peculiar.  Are you sure Wilson is talking
about falseness groups in the modern sense of the term?

His A and D both correspond to modern D falseness (they are
the two in-course tenors-together members of the modern D
falseness group); similarly his F and G are the two members
of modern-day E falseness; his C and E are modern-day K; and
his L, M and N together form modern-day L falseness.
