This is a late 19th century copy of a portrait by John Theodore Heins of Nelson's mother when she was 18, just before she met and married the Reverend Edmund Nelson, rector of a Norfolk congregation. A woman of firm character, she bore him eleven children, but her health was not strong. She died aged 42 when her son Horatio was nine, leaving him and his two elder and two younger brothers, and three sisters, to be brought up by their widowed father.
