    Bless Nelson for all he did for England. His new family with Lady Hamilton should have been honoured and looked after as his dying legacy to England, but they were not . My humble thanks to him for all he did and to his beloved family.

    I know I’m related to Lady Hamilton my grandmother said but wouldn’t tell us how and by whom. My GG Grandmother’s name was Lindridge by marriage but I don’t know her maiden name.

    I am interested in the AGAR side of the Nelson family. This is after the period of Lord Horatio Nelson, but perhaps 50 years later.

    I am researching AGAR family and AGAR-ROBARTES, who seem to have a close relationship with Nelson

    Ah, I didn’t realise the Tribe family was from his ancestry. I must come from one of the families that don’t seem to have any information on the Internet. You would’ve thought having relatives like them that you’d know officially.

    My ancestors “Milsteds” Blacksmiths in Tenterden for over 500 years lived opposite Horatia Ward and family. No doubt looked after their horses and carriage. Horatia would wait in “The Woolpack” for the coach to London. The Milsteds were also licensees. In the 1940’s My father was given two’ very old ‘photos of a lady and bearded gentleman that had been oil painted to look like portraits . Also portrait of a lady on copper dressed in late 18th century apparel. He was told take care of these they are descendants of Horatia Nelson. They now hang proudly in my living room!

    My Grandma is adamant that she is a descendant of Lord Nelson, her mother (my great-mother) is Edith Nelson, who then married and became a Wilkinson, I assured her, that just because you share the same surname, doesn’t mean you may be related,,,,but somehow I am on a mission to prove she may be right or wrong, trouble is I dont know where to start .

    The only way one can be related to Lord Nelson is via the illegitimate line as he had no children with his wife. Emma Hamilton bore his daughter Horatia who married the Rev. Philip Ward and they made their surname Nelson-Ward. Hope this helps look at the tree to follow the line.

    In 1953 my father, Wilfred Henry Stuatr Hill b. 17 July 1906 was overjoyed when my older brother Stuart was accepted as a Cadet Midshipman in the Royal Australian Navy. My Aunt, Muriel Elizabeth Ruth Simonsen nee Hill said: That’s not surprising , we are descended from Lord Nelson via Lady Hamilton. My paternal grandparents were William Henry German Hill b Barnstaple Devon 20 6 1982 and Ruth Barling Culverhouse b. 0106 1878. If you can shyed any light on this claim I would be most appreciative.

    Does any one here know about Mary Anne quint a supposed secret child of admiral lord nelson?

    Hi John, I was very intersted to see your tree of Nelson descendants. I noticed there were a few gaps, where decedents with children weren’t listed. So I have created a more complete tree which can be found here

    It probably includes people you weren’t aware of including myself, the adopted son of Ray Wanda Mayhew (nĂ©e Style) . Of course such a tree can never be considered absolutely definitive, because there is always the chance that others like me could be out there, but I think I have capture all the known descendent branches. As it stands I believe there are 32 living descendants.

    It’s good to make your acquaintance, 4th cousin.

    All the best

    My paternal family is supposedly descendants of Lady Emma hamilton, though im not sure how true this is and from which of her children. My fathers middle name was Hamilton as was his fathers and grandfrathers and various great grandfathers, I assume (if it is true) we must descend from her first born, as surely if we descended from the child of Lord Nelson then the family would honor him instead of Lady Hamilton, who wasnt of noble blood. I grew up not half an hour from the house Emma Hamilton lived in, which in recent years was a family pub named after her. I doubt it is true but would be great to know.
