"Around 1800, William Nelles built The Hermitage on land near Lake Ontario.  When he died, the land was divided between his sons, Peter Ball Nelles and John Adolphus Nelles.  Peter had the eastern portion of the land, which he called Chestnut Park.  John Adolphus had the western part on which he built Lakelawn.  Two Nelles descendants, F.M. Manson and Lillian Drope, named this road in the 1920s."  The Streets of Grimsby from A - W
