The Nelles Family collection comprises the records of many Nelles family members as well as individuals who were associated with them through marriage (including the Millard family and the Manson family). Most of the Nelles and allied families were born, raised and/or lived most of their lives in the Grimsby area. At the time of settlement, this area was often referred to as the Forty, as the settlement was along the Forty Mile creek. The collection represents many generations of Nelles family members.
