This Nelson line is my husband’s maternal line. They have traced their line back to a Richard Nelson in Bolton, Lancashire, England born about 1615. They had probably been there for generations previous, and stayed at least 9 more generations after that. I know that my mother-in-law is in touch with the cousin who has traced their line, but I am not sure of anyone else who researches this line. I am just starting to learn the ins and outs of English research, so it will be a while before I know more than what I have on this line.
