George Nelson SC was the son of Matthew Neilson born 1686 in ,,Donegal, Ireland, and died 1744 in Pr Federick, Craven, South Carolina, USA. He married Jane Neilson on 1707 in Craven, South Carolina, USA.

George Neilson (d. 1743). He married Helen (Ellen, Eleanor) Neilson in 1743. He is buried in Prince Frederick Parish, Craven, S.C.  Eleanor was his cousin.

George Neilson, Maryland, was born in Scotland:

This information was obtained from:  Broderbund WFT Vol. 13, Ed. 1, Tree #1534
"Neilson, George.  Jacobite Prisoner.  Transported to Maryland on Goodspeed, ex Liverpool, 28 July 1716.  (Calender of State Papers.  Colonial Series, America and West Indies, 1716-17.  edit. Cecil Headlan.  London, 1930)  4835"(6)
"(George Neilson) arrived Md Oct 1716" (7)
"Neilson George
Jacobite captured at Preston.  Transported from Liverpool to Virginia on the Godspeed, master Arthur Smith, 28 July 1716.  Sold to Charles Digges in Maryland 18 October 1716 (History of Maryland)" (8)

The Goodspeed's Manifest is available on line.  Both George Neilson and William Johnson (father of Hannah (Johnson) Nelson were indentured to Gov. Digges.

I am descended from William Nelson (believed to be the son of George) and Hannah Johnson (d/o William Johnson).
