No Hans, but there is some relation:

It is understood that a British missionary with the surname of Girdelston, whose wife had some family link with Admiral Lord Nelson of Trafalgar fame, arrived in Natal Colony in the 19th century and bought the original farm that is now the village of Trafalgar from the colonial government. The land was densely forested and uninhabited, and remained so for decades. Perhaps a century later a mining timber merchant, Alfred de Maine, purchased the farm in 1948. He felled all the suitable timber and tried to farm the land, unsuccessfully, and eventually had it rezoned and laid out as a residential area. De Maine had a fascination for things historical, knew about the Nelson link and to keep it 'in the family', as it were, he called the township or village, Trafalgar, and named all the streets after famous British Royal Navy admirals or seamen, from Admiral Lord Nelson himself through to great Elizabethan sea captains like Drake, Grenville and Hawkins.
