Horatio Nelson, 3rd Earl Nelson in Wikipedia


thepeerage.com
The story of Trafalgar House, formerly Standlynch House, on Wikipedia gives much information about this branch of the Nelson family's tenure there.
"... his 12-year-old son Horatio inherited the estate in 1836. Horatio Nelson went to great lengths to ensure that the estate was well maintained; he commissioned a new garden and renovation of Standlynch Church."
Records exist for Horatio in every census from 1841-1911.
In 1841, aged 17, he is in a cottage in Linton, Devon, "of independent means". In the others, he is at Trafalgar House in Wiltshire.
