Dawn's family name was arrived at by no ordinary expectation.
For a long while the NEILSON family name was assumed to to be a change as a consequence of war.
However this did not appear to be consistent with the information on the various marriage & death records.

Discovery of the Greenhills School records, (APW is Admission Progress & Withdrawl register)at the Invercargill Public Library using clues written in the above records was most enlightening.

See Sources & Notes attached to the Family pages.
It would appear that Charles Frederick NEILSON, b.1884 was born to Charles {Frederick} NILSEN (NELSON)(1846-1918)
In 1889, young Charles started Greenhills School with his two brothers, Simon & Edward. Charlie had registration number 18 until he left in December 1896 under the name of Charlie NILSEN. Then upon re-enrolment in Jan 1897, (because he was to young to leave school before his 13th birthday) Charlie acquired new number 117 the APW indicating also the previous number. So that kept the identity. However the names written in the register were different AND altered! NILSEN had become NEILSEN which was ruled out and written as NEILSON. So here we have the name change; a comedy of errors on the part of the Greenhills School teacher.
Now we are left with the question, an answer impossible to know;
"Why did Charlie, age 13 years, accept (and adopt) the new spelling of his name?"
He took it for himself and his family throughout his life. This is evidenced at his marriage to Flora DEANS in 1905, aged 21.
