WANTED: EVELYN NESBIT
PHOTOS, BOOKS, POSTCARDS, ETC.
I'm very interested in any items dealing with Evelyn Nesbit, early 20th century (late 1890s to 1930s) actress and chorus-girl (in the Floradora sextette). She appeared on Broadway, in Vaudeville, and in silent films. Her dark beauty was also the subject of many photographs, rotographs, etc. Her image was often on the cover of sheet music.
I am especially interested in postcards with her image. Postcards of Nesbit in a Kimono on a polar-bearskin rug, in a variety of poses, were very popular. Evelyn was 21st in Playboy Magazine's "100 Sexiest of the 20th Century." A true goddess.
Born: December 25, 1884; Died: January 17, 1967.

In recent history (since approx 1900) our family came from East Ham, London, England, very close to the Bolyn Pub, near West Ham's football ground.
We don't know of any history prior to this. The family is now scattered around the country and there are very few older members of the family to talk to. It would be good to find out some more about our family. Can anyone help?My father, Leneord (nickname Bob) is 81 (& still going strong), his father I think was called Albert. Most of the family were killed in the Blitz in 1942. It would be nice if we could trace back the family tree.

My grandfather's brother Eric did a lot of delving into our history and I'm trying to get my hands on his papers.
Most of my family are red-heads, and all but one of the people who have commented that they used to know/work with a Nisbet have said, when asked, that they were red-heads. Our index fingers are also longer than our ring fingers so perhaps my lot are just odd!
Please excuse the spelling, as dyslexia also appears to be something that's passed on in my side of the family.

I didn't realise there were so many Nezzy's about until I bought the Burke's peerage world book of Nesbitts..... I think most of them live in the USA - either that or they appear to breed faster out there!!! I have some very old photos of the family from the present dating back to 1860ish (I think..if photos were out then) and the family lived in Orpington Kent, UK...as far as I am aware. They were in the furniture removals/road haulage business. I dont know a great deal before my Grandfather (William Frederick) as he ran away to the Navy when he was young and was disowned by my Great Grandparents. He died on a submarine during World War 2 so I never actually had the chance to meet him. If anyone has any relatives past or present from the Orpington area I would be pleased to hear from you.

It is possible that Nisbet McRobbie, born in about 1783, was given his Christian name from a maternal source, for example maybe his mother was from the Nisbet family.

My mother is searching for any details of Frances Nisbet nee Woolward. Frances was the first wife of Lord Nelson and my Mother's father always insisted we were related to her. We know she met Lord Nelson in Barbados - she was married to a Mr (first name unknown) Nisbet. Interestingly there is now a luxury hotel called Nisbet Plantation Beach Club in Nevis, West Indies which was originally built as a sugar plantation in 1778. I wonder if this is connected with the Mr Nisbet who was married to Frances. We know Frances' father was called Jesse Woolward but have no other details to search on. I would be enormously grateful for any information you may be able to furnish me with, or point me in another direction if you are unable to help me.

My great-great-great grandfather, Allen Nesbitt, d. Co. Cavan, Ireland c. 1815. Shortly thereafter his widow Jenny (Brown) and all but one of their 8(?) children came to America, landing near Montreal. 2 of the children were sick and remained on board; while visiting them one day Jenny and 2 other kids missed a boat and were forced to spend the night in the woods. It was cold, although June, and J. covered the kids (one my G. G. G-father Henry) with her cloak. She caught pneumonia and died shortly thereafter. A real pioneer story! The kids, left alone, eventually crossed into the U.S.A. and spread out across the country. Any info on the ancestry of Allen N. would be appreciated.

This is my first outing in the world of genealogy. My husband's immediate family is gone, and he knows very little about his ancestors. His grandfather's name was George Nesbit and he died in Village, AR in the early 1920s. His son, James Travis Nesbit, was my husband's father. My husband and I now live in Arkansas, so we decided to research his family. It seems an awesome, maybe even insurmountable, task, but very interesting and rewarding.

Hello all you Nisbetts. I have been visiting this site more and more. Since I started searching my roots I have discovered many cousins I did not know I had. It has been really great. I have also found many interesting family facts on this great site. My great grandparents were John Hamilton Nesbitt who married Agnes McFarlane Hamilton in Dunbarton Scotland. He changed the spelling of his name when they came to Canada in 1911 to "Nisbett". So when you are researching make sure to check for spelling. I am going to Scotland in May so I hope to find out more. I will answer any e-mail if you care to contact me. "keep smiling"

I am researching my Nesbitt family. My grandfather was William Henry Nesbitt, b.1888 in Ark., son of Allen Harrison Nesbitt, born in Ark. in 1856. He was a son of James Elliot Nesbitt, b. 1821 in Hardin Co. TN. I believe John Elliot's father to have been John Nesbitt, b. in SC. Is anyone else working on this line of Nesbitts?

The family originates from Northumberland in the UK, mostly from a small village called Swarland. My father Ivor Nesbit moved from the UK to Rhodesia after the second world war. The reason for this was that he with a group of ex RAF colleagues went to start the Rhodesian Army Air Wing, the foundation of the RRAF (Royal Rhodesia Airforce), that after UDI became the Rhodesian Airforce.
My wife Janette and two daughters moved back to the UK from Zimbabwe in July 1980 and settled first in Amble, Northumberland, subsequently moving to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, then Rugby and now we live and work in Dublin the Republic of Ireland.
I am very interested in tracing the history of the Nesbit Clan.
