Leslie Nelson.
« on: Saturday 01 January 22 03:06 GMT (UK) »
Happy New Year to all.  Mat 2022 be better than the last two years.   

 My last post was on James Nelson. Completed.  Now Iím trying to find a son of James so not sure if I enter a new Topic or go back.  I know what your thinking 😬.  But persistence usually pays in the long term.  I hope.   Iím having trouble trying to find the birth mother of Leslie Nelson  born 1898 South Australia.  He married Hazel May Brown  St Mary Magdalene  Adelaide.  They had a son Jack Nelson  born 1925. Died 1993.  Jack had a sister Marjorie Jean Nelson.  B 1928. D 2007.
On Leslie Nelsonís marriage certificate it states James Nelson as father. Mary Donovan. Mother.  What I have found out is Mary Donovan May not be his birth mother.  I was told by a family member that Les Nelsonís mother was a Grigg.    I sent for a birth certificate for Leslie Nelson only to find there is no record of a Leslie Nelson with that birth date or parent. 
Also there is another son George Nelson. Born around 1890.  But once again his background is a mystery.  I did find however that George was a William George Nelson. Who had a son William George Nelson. B 1911. South Australua.    These brothers were my grandmothers brothers.  Flora Nelson. Born 1881 Adelaide. South Australia   My apologies for causing you all to scream.  Sincerely.  Dalek.

 Leslie Nelson.  P S. there is a record on Ancestry that Leslie Nelson is on a members tree. Grigg / Atkins. But I am not a member of Ancestry.  Dalek.

He married Hazel May Brown  St Mary Magdalene  Adelaide....On Leslie Nelsonís marriage certificate it states James Nelson as father. Mary Donovan. Mother. 

As far as I am aware, SA marriage certificates for that time period do not give a mother's name, only the father.

The last child indexed born to James NELSON and Mary (Jane) DONOVAN in SA was in 1887, their older daughters were in their 20's in 1898.

Leslie Nelson.  P S. there is a record on Ancestry that Leslie Nelson is on a members tree. Grigg / Atkins. But I am not a member of Ancestry.  Dalek.

I cannot get any results for this to come up at all, perhaps someone else can.

Are you looking at this marriage certificate, South Australia, 1925?. Are you repeating information about the certificate, as told to you by someone?

"On Leslie Nelsonís marriage certificate it states James Nelson as father. Mary Donovan"

If you are researching the origins of this Leslie NELSON, you need to see his marriage certificate.

Hi Wivenhoe,

I have previously typed up the details from that 1925 marriage and provided a  link to the image.  It is on a recent thread.  I am presently unable to copy a live link across to this current thread but I am  confident you can easily find it with that clue.

I apologise if I am duplicating information posted on other threads, but I think these three cuttings belong together.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/59714172 The Mail 17 Jan 1925 announcing the pending BROWN-NELSON marriage. 

BROWN óNELSON. óThe marriage of Hazel May, the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Brown, Paringa (late Wiliamstown), to Leslie, second son of Mrs. and the late Mr. James Nelson, Queen street, Adelaide, will be celebrated at St. Mary Magdalene, Moore street, on January 24, 7.30 p.m. Relatives and friends cordially invited to ceremony. No reception.

So Leslie was the second son  and his mother was alive and residing Queen St Adelaide when James (her husband, his father) died.   Leslie's father had died in July 1924 as per the following cutting :

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/59025260 The Register 30 July 1924, 
late James NELSON of 11 Queen St, City for West Terrace Cemetery.
