Re: Kidmans in Cooma, NSW, Australia
I am trying to find out more about Captain Nelson Clover.Accroding to ABC Dynasties (Australian TV program)in 1913 he married Gertrude Kidman
(Extract from their web page)
The eldest daughter of Sir Sidney and Lady Isabel Kidman, Gertrude was born in 1886, and grew up among the wealthy citizens of Kapunda and Adelaide. In 1913, she married Lieutenant (later Captain) Nelson Clover of the Royal Navy.
For Sir Sidney, there was no hope of this son-in-law joining the family business as once his tour of duty in Adelaide had been completed, Nelson Clover returned to England with his wife. However, the English branch (as they became known) remained shareholders in the family business.
Nelson was on board the HMS Montagu when she was wrecked on Lundy Island.I am following up information on this wreck and would like to know what became of him in later life.
