I am seeking any information that would assist in my
research of the NELMS family history. My great grandfather,
Alfred Nelms, and his father John sailed from England to
Australia in 1873 aboard the barque 'Indus'. Alfred was
born about 1853 at Oxford and his mother was Emily Tipping.
John's father was Cook Nelms (1795) and his mother was
Harriet Lovegrove. They were married in 1824 and John was
baptised on 27 July 1828. Other children of Cook and
Harriet were Maryanne (1824), Henry (1831-34), Alfred (1833),
and Elizabeth (1839). Cook's parents were Cook Nelms (1766)
of Shabbington and Mary North (1761) of Ickford.

Villages that are mentioned quite a bit include Ickford,
Shabbington, Great Milton and Great Haseley. More
information is available at:
