Pretty 17th century cottage linked to Lord Nelson for sale
- Credit: Parsons
A Grade II listed home once owned by Lord Nelson's brother is up for sale for £500,000-£525,000.
Nelson House, North Elmham is believed to have been owned by the Rev Suckling Nelson, younger brother to the famous admiral.
Suckling, named after Nelson's mother’s maiden name, was apparently the child who caused more worry than any of the others.
He did not seem able to settle at any career, first going into the drapery business, being apprenticed at a shop in Beccles, but eventually, taking holy orders.
He was ordained a deacon in 1793 and appointed a rector of Burnham Overy where he died aged just 35, also known to be in favour of drinking and greyhound racing.
