Nelly's history until she was first registered in 1905 is unknown, as is her builder as I am unable to find any records of a shipbuilder in Falkirk,

Her first registered owner was a John Gillespie of No 1 Shed, Port Dundas, Glasgow, which suggests that she was employed in carrying transhipment cargoes between the Forth Ports and Glasgow via the Forth and Clyde Canal. In 1921 she is registered to James Aitken & Co (Falkirk) Ltd of Lint Riggs, Falkirk. Nothing further is known.
