Thanks for replying so quickly. I have never been on that genealogy page before and don't really understand it, just wrote a message where it said to. Anyway, I don't know if we are looking for the same family or not but they at least must be related I would think.
My husband David's father was P. Henry Nettle, his father was Philip Lawrence Nettle born May 9, 1870, the last of a family of 10 kids. I think that their parents names were James Nettle and Mary Ann Lawrence. But maybe this is wrong and he was named Richard. Either way the children of these two as I have been told are Mary Jane-1848, Richard-1850, Bessie-1852, John L-1854, Mark J.-1856, James M.-1858, another Bessie-1860, William-1865, Walter-1868 and Philip-1870. I have tried on several occasions to find a living Cornwall link without success. I have a Nettle history book with many Nettles listed and a lot are in Cornwall,I have written to 3 I think with only one reply which claims to not be my link. Will write to more when time allows. I have a pen friend over there who tells me there are 19 Nettles listed in her phone book. So I know there are more, but haven't connected yet. It is exciting to talk to someone following the same name in Cornwall too. Hope to hear more from you, so we can figure out a match somehow. This history book I mentioned also lists dozens of Nettles in Australia but don't know if you are one of them.
