John Nelmes Hines


Valued Member
near Boston Lincolnshire
I am trying to find links with John Nelmes Hines born about 1838 in Bristol Glouc and emigrated to Australia with another John Nelmes Hines mentioned in the London Gazette on 5th July 1918 as a Lt. in the New Zealand forces. Commended for conspicious gallentry and devotion to duty.

I would be most pleased to have any details of their ancestors or descendants.

Can any one shed any light on the middle name Nelmes which I thought most likely to be a maternal surname at some point. There is a Thomas Nelmes born 1758 in Bristol married in 1785 to a Mary Batten. The name otherwise is very rare and I suspect there is a link somewhere here too.

any help with this greatly appreciated
