Nelson, Marlborough - January 1854

Journal by ngairedith

Looking for ancestors in very early New Zealand? Perhaps they were in Nelson

NELSON, is the second-oldest settled city in New Zealand and the oldest in the South Island. Itwas proclaimed a city by royal charter in 1858. It was named in honour of the Admiral Horatio Nelson who defeated both the French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Many roads and public areas around the city are named after people and ships associated with that battle. Trafalgar Street is the main shopping axis of the city. Nelson's Maori name, Whakatu, means 'build' 'raise' or 'establish'
