Mr. Thomas Nelson of Holme
Mr. Thomas Nelson of Holme House, Holme-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, J.P., whose death at the age of 65 on February 11 was announced last week, had from a very early age showed a considerable musical talent and had studied under Dr. George Benjamin Arnold. One of his greatest musical achievements was the transposition of Grieg's Peer Gynt suite for the organ. He was also responsible for some 70 musical compositions and organ arrangements, the best known being an Oriental suite, a Romance for violin and piano, and a song entitled "Mine is the land of Palms." But music was not his only interest in the province of art and literature, for he was also the author of "A Genealogical History of the Nelson Family" - a valuable work which took the author some 10 years to complete, and for which the late Lord Nelson wrote the introduction. For many years Mr. Nelson gave his services as organist to the village church; and the parish is indebted to him for the steps he took in the early years of the century to arrest the decay of the fine old south porch of the church.
Born on June 3, 1871, Thomas Nelson was the son of Matthew Nelson of Holme House and Jane Anne, eldest daughter of the Rev. George Steers Faught. Mr. T. Nelson married in 1898 Maude Anna Louisa, only daughter of the late William Phipps Boileau. Pilot Officer Edmund T. T. Nelson, R.A.F., who is at present serving in India, is his heir.
Thomas married Maud Anna Louisa Boileau, daughter of William Phipps Boileau and Louise Mary Palmer Howell, in 1898.616 (Maud Anna Louisa Boileau was born in 1868 in Kensington, London.)
