It would appear that Louisa's surname was Gibb. Her brother was a John James King Gibb 1866-1923.  It is noted on his estate that his sister is married to R.H. Nevin.  Albert French Nevin was appointed as executor.

Thank you Catherine for the link to the grave photo, I wasn't expecting that.

Thank you Nookie for the note that Albert French Nevin was the executor of JJK Gibb's estate I had not come across that before.

I do think I have the right Robert Henry Nevin and his most likely wife is Louisa Gibb, I would just like to find the marriage to see if it names his parents to tie it up. I have found a few more leads so I will chase them up to see if they can help. I have not seen that Robert left a will but if there was one it could help sort out who were his children, I only knew of Albert but it appears there are at least two others.


Thank you both for your help.
James Stott c1775-1850. James was born in Yorkshire but where? He was a stonemason and married Elizabeth Archer (nee Nicholson) in 1794 at Ripon. They lived thereafter in Masham. If anyone has any suggestions or leads as to his birthplace I would be interested to know. I have searched for it for years without success. Thank you.

Found another son - Gerald George Nevin 1889 - 20 October 1936. Married to a Frances Devoy.  I have downloaded his death notice, so if you pm me your email address I will send it on to you.

I have just found what I think could be a daughter - Louisa Margaret born +1 1911 who married a Harry Milne.  The witness is R.H. Nevin.  There is another possibility as well - Rhoda Helen who married a Langham Arthur Walker at the same church as Louisa. The witness could be an L Nevin. I have downloaded both.

This is an extract from the report of Robert Henry Nevin's death in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town Province in 1900. Does the reference numbers indicate where the marriage record may be found? (It looks like L4 D2 whatever that means)

Hello Craig,

Thank you for your posts. As you probably know the

"1. Nevin of Allendale owner of "The Riding" homestead"

were John Nevin 1780-1839 and Elizabeth Ridley 1788-1860. These are my direct line ancestors. It was when looking at their children that the enigma of Robert Henry Nevin came up. Over the years I had looked on and off to find where he went and it was not until I started this thread that I finally found out. So naturally I am grateful to all those who have replied to the thread.

David
