I am starting work on my wife's ancestry tree. Her maternal line great-grandmother was a Nelson, and the family story is descendancy from Horatio Nelson (1758 - 1809). Anecdotal reports hint at more than just a nurse / patient relationship during his illness while he was here in 1779. I find nothing to suggest children resulted from any relationship, however his sole known daughter was born to a lover. I'm very interested in hearing from others researching Nelson surnames in Jamaica, especially investigating similar family connections with Horatio Nelson.
