  • Notes 


    • In 1861, a Charles Nelson, a mariner and a Naturalised British Subject, was boarding at 39 Pitt Street in Liverpool.

      There are records of a Charles Nelson, a seaman, in the period 1866-1877, from Liverpool crew lists on ancestry.com, with one record (service 9 Feb 1867-28 Mar 1868) being on findmypast.ie England and Wales Merchant Navy Crew Lists, but with the owner, master and registration of the ship based in Liverpool:

      Name Born Official No. Date Ship
      Charles Nelson 46671 1866 Northern Empire
      Charles Nelson Sweden 46671 26 Sep 1866 Northern Empire
      Charles Nelson 46671 1867 Northern Empire
      Charles Nelson Sweden 50480 6 Feb 1867 Barracouta
      Charles Nelson Sweden 50480 9 Feb 1867-28 Mar 1868 Barracouta
      Chas Nelson 50480 24 Oct 1867 Barracouta
      Charles Nelson Sweden 46671 29 Dec 1867 Northern Empire
      Charles Nelson 50480 1868 Barracouta
      Charles Nelson 63203 1871 City of Brussels
      Chas Nilsson Sweden 47595 14 Mar 1872 Hertfordshire
      Charle Nilson Sweden 63203 9 Nov 72-22 Jan 73 City of Brussels
      Charles Nelson Sweden 63203 14 Dec 1872 City of Brussels
      Charles Nelson 63203 1873 City of Brussels
      C Nelson Sweden 54599 21 Aug 1877-5 Oct 1877 Alps

      It seems that there were a number of Charles Nelsons from Sweden, about the same age, serving as seamen in the 1860s-1870s. The records deserve further analysis for ports of joining and leaving the ship, previous ship served on, and any overlap in periods of service. The only Charles Nelson with service consistent with the man who was a marine store dealer in London in 1871 was Official no. 46671. He served on the 'Northern Empire' in 1866 and 1867.

      The witnesses to Charles and Emma's 1862 marriage at the parish church of St Leonard in Shoreditch, London, after the issue of banns, were Alfred Rice and [Esther] ******son i.e. not Nelson or Brook family members. Perhaps Emma was living away from her parents - her occupation on the marriage record was given as servant.

      Charles Nelson of 11 Sabberton Street, Canning Town, Essex died in Essex on 25 Dec 1891. Administration of his estate was granted to his widow Emma on 26 Feb 1892 in London. His effects were valued at £122.
