Wolfred Nelson, 1792–1863, Canadian rebel, b. Montreal. A brother of Robert Nelson, Wolfred served as a surgeon in the War of 1812. In 1827 he entered the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada as a supporter of Louis Joseph Papineau. For his leading role in the rebellion of 1837, Nelson was banished (1838) to Bermuda; with the amnesty of 1843 he returned to Montreal, resumed his medical practice, and served again (1844–51) in the Legislative Assembly.
