The speaker at the meeting of the Rotary Club of Kendal on 12th June was one of their own members who gave an illustrated talk entitled ‘Cousin Nellie’. Whilst researching his family tree, he came across cousin Nellie and started doing some research into her life.
What a fascinating person she was! Marring an Indian gentleman, she moved to India where both her husband and herself became involved in Indian politics, in particular the Congress Party. Her husband became Mayor of Calcutta and both became very well respected.
