Ferdinise Nebolle [French: Nébolle] (17 May 1855 – 10 December 1965) was a French supercentenarian from the overseas department of Martinique. Her age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Ferdinise Nebolle was born in Le Marin, Martinique, France on 17 May 1855. She was the daughter of Rosa Nebolle (c.1830–1905) and an unknown father. She had 6 siblings. She had a daughter, Marie (1879–?), with an unknown man.

Following the death of 108-year-old Desiree Delory on 7 July 1962, Nebolle became the oldest (known) living person in France.

Ferdinise Nebolle died in Martinique, France on 10 December 1965, at the age of 110 years, 207 days.

Potential Longevity Records

If her age were validated, she would have been the world's oldest woman (and person) from 6 March 1965 (the death of Elizabeth Kensley until her own death nine months later, and the first French supercentenarian (although Georgette Jeanmaire was probably the first from Metropolitan France). However, the pending case of James King outlived her and was probably older.
