Nelson Edgar NUNN (1896-1970)

and Hilda Blanche AYLING (1896-1980)


Nelson Edgar Nunn and Hilda Blanche Ayling married in the fourth quarter of 1919 in Brighton, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  Their daughter married my dad's brother.)

Nelson Edgar Nunn was born on 8 March 1896 in Stoke Ash, Suffolk.  He was the son of Charles Nunn (c1858-?) and Elizabeth Lummis (c1864-?).  He died aged 74 years and his death was registered in the fourth quarter of 1970 in the Worthing registration district.  I remember being told he had been knocked over and killed on the Old Shoreham Road in Southwick.

Hilda Blanche Ayling was born on 27 October 1896 Addington, Surrey.  Her birth was registered in the Croydon registration district.  She died aged 83 years and her death was registered in the first quarter of 1980 in the Worthing registration district.  In 1911 she was a 14 year old general servant living in the home of 39 year old John Worton and his 34 year old wife Martha at 7 Brunswick Road, Hove.  John was a licenced victualler.


Nelson Edgar Nunn and Hilda Blanche Ayling had 2 children:

  1. Walter Edgar Nunn was born on 18 November 1920.  He died in March 1994 in Felpham, Sussex.

    Walter married Minnie Smith in 1944.  Their marriage was registered in the Sheffield, Yorkshire registration district.  They had 2 children.

    I spoke to Minnie on the phone in October 2001 to let her know her sister-in-law Joy had died.

  2. Joyce Mary Nunn was born on 24 October 1927 in Brighton, Sussex.  She died on 15 October 2001 in Nowra, New South Wales, Australia.  Joyce married Harold Willard in 1948.  He was the son of William Charles Willard (1894-1848) and Bessie Warman (1900-1987).
