OMG so many of us... but trying to find which ancestor is which when they all had the names of Peter, John, Mary, Malcom etc.

I have been searching both on here and also the w/site: Scotlands people.

We originally came from Portree, my Great Great Grandfather John Nicolson YOB 1820, died 1917 and married (about 1851/2) Mary McLEOD YOB 1832,died 1904. Married Isle of Skyee. The only people that suit these names that migrated to Australia via Liverpool UK changed their surnames to NICHOLSON.. arrived in Victoria 1853 aboard the ALLISON (and the ages match). Now my Father - Robert Nicholson found this info, but as he does not have a PC (so hence no internet), I have taken over the project.

Before I go any further.. I would like to see if there are any Nicholson who have the family tree for us in Australia.

John Nicholson (born 1855 - Newtown, Vic) but must have changed his name to Peter* somewhere along the line (his parents were John and Mary). Peter Nicholson married Fanny Marshall - they had many children (6 or 7) - one being my Grandfather Ernest Nicholson(YOB 1899 died 1984). The eldest son John Murdock Nicholson was killed in WWI. The youngest son was named Henry (I think about 1907) and married a lady by the name of Girlie. This tree resided near Cobar, NSW.

Hope to hear from anyone who may have some info so that we can compare.

To all the NICHOLSON's/NICOLSON's around the world... what a great mob we are....

(oh and yes I have been to Portree- what a beautiful place it is...)

Just stumbled across your site in my travels and wondered if any of you here may have any links to "my" Nicholsons from Somerset (Keinton Mandeville/Barton St. David/Butleigh/Street, etc.). The furthest I can get back is to a Joseph Nicholson who married Mary Gregory in 1792 (don't know where). In return, I'd be glad to help any of you looking for your own roots here in Somerset.

Don't know if anyone out there can help me, but sure would appreciate any info I could get regarding my biological dad. I don't have much to go on other than the possible surname Nicholson and maybe a Danny or Peter. He would have been born around 1945 to 1950 & met my mother Linda Mason, in Ballarat Victoria in September of 1969 - I was born in may of 1970. One tale goes that he was "sent away" (Tasmania?) when the news of my imminent birth reached his mother. I'm told he was a polite and well spoken gentleman tall with dark features - very handsome. I only have fragments. I'm relying on the kindness of a stranger to hopefully give me something that could help piece together this enormous void in my life. I have two beautiful children who also deserve to understand thier biological heritage. I don't want or need anything from anyone other than to know where I came from. Thankyou for any help you can give...

An interesting site. I am looking for Thomas Patterson Knox Nicholson. He was born in New Zealand and then traveled to Fiji where he was a partner in the Fiji Ship-building Compnay around 1892. Also looking for Charles Nicholson born 1808 to Alexander and Janet (nee Meiklejohn) he moved to Jamaica and that is all that is known. His siblings were Janet, William,Mary, Alexander, Allison, John (my gg grandfather) and Grizel (Grace).
When John left Scotland he arrived in Melbourne at some stage and married Ann Begg in 1854, they then sailed to New Zealand and had their first child William Begg Nicholson in 1855 in Auckland. Seven children later and they moved to Gumtown, Whitianga, where they became publicans or bushmen.
Ann died in child birth, we asume along with the child.
Any info would be helpful in putting the pieces together.

He was a remarkable scotsman who came to Canada for flight training and met my dear Grandmother. Later in life "Boyd" travelled worldwide (North America, Russia, China, India, Africa, etc.) as a preacher of the wonderful, good news of Jesus Christ. He passed away in November 2001 at the age of 78, and is greatly missed by many, many people.

Thoroughly enjoyed viewing the guestbook. Now can anyone help me - I am looking for any info about my g.g.grandmother Catherine Nicholson/Nicolson bn:c1852 (parent's unknown) who married a Neil MacDougall (bn:c1853)
at Gretna Green in 1876(against her parent's wishes) and they emigrated to South Australia (on board The Duntrune).
I have been unable to find a birth registration or proof of their marriage. It almost seems that they did not exist!
However, a story that I was told was that Catherine's family (NIcholsons) hid Bonnie Prince Charles when he was under seige...Does this story add up with any other Nicholson's. I would dearly love to find out the names of her parent's & any siblings that she had. Neil MacDougall returned to Scotland for a holiday & died there (guessing around 1900-1905). Catherine & Neil had 5 or 6 children & they lived at Woodside, in SOuth AUstralia.
Many thanks for reading this e-mail. Pam SKurray.

My Mother is a Nicholson and my grandfather was Donald Angus Nicholson (b. 1917/d. 1990) and his father was Angus Alec Nicholson. My Great Grandfather Angus was born in East Bridgewater Mass. I know the family goes back to the Isle of Skye but they went to Cape Breton and then down to Mass. Anyone have a connection?
Also my Great Grandfather was married to a woman named Catherine Carey.
I am also looking for information on Twins born in this line, I know of one set that was born to a Rachel Nicholson who was the daughter of my great great uncle Alexander Nicholson ( whom I named one of my twins after) Alexander Nicholson was the brother of I think Murdock Nicholson who is the father to my great grandfather Angus Alec Nicholson.

I have considerable information about the Nicholsons, a Quaker family that settled in Wayne Twp., Belmont County, Ohio, in the early 1800s. My ggg grandfather was Jacob Nicholson who was born around 1760 and died in 1835. His wife was Mary. My gg grandfather was George P. Nicholson (1815-1880) who married Mary McNichols. Their daughter Rachel married Amos Thomas. I have looked at a lot of Quaker records and Jacob, despite being disowned when he became a Hicksite was true to his pacifist views. Most of his children were disowned for marrying outside the faith or other transgressions. I have written an essay that I would like to share with anyone interested in this line of Nicholsons. I'm also interested in a Joseph Nicholson, who also settled in Belmont County in the early 1800s, before statehood actually. I've often wondered if he is the same Joseph Nicholson who was with Washington during his trip down the Ohio River in 1770. His farm was next to Jacob's. I'd love to hear from anyone who has any information about this line, particularly ancestors of Jacob. He was in Redstone, Fayette County, PA, for a time before moving to Ohio. There are many Nicholsons still in the Belmont County area and they get together in August for a reunion, although not many people show up these days.

Donald Nicholson came to Australia on the Sailing Ship " James Moran" February 11, 1838. The occupation of Donald and his father was listed as Ships Carpenter/Boat Builder. Donald was bought out as a Free Immigrant. Apparently there was a shortage of skilled labour in Australia at the time. His parents were listed as Donald Nicholson and Ann Mathison and they were married January 15, 1812 Stromness, Orkney, Scotland. I have quite a lot of researh material of the Australian side of Donald. But I don't have anything other than this of his Scotland ancestors.

Nic Olsen or Nichol's Son? My uncle, Kenneth Scott Nicoll of Conroe, Tx, is originally from (I think) a farmstead in the Ballardvale area of Andover, Mass. After I took a trip to Scotland, I had bought a MacNichol of Scorrabreac cap badge and balmoral for my aunt. But Scorrabreac is on the west coast of Scotland and my uncle's family is from the east coast at Arbroath. Plus there's the Nicholsons of Lasswade and Carnock, south of and near to Edinburgh in the east, whose clan motto is "Generositate". So if his folks are from Arbroath, which clan or group does he belong to?

I enjoyed my visit.
I was hoping to find something about my Roy Nicholson d. abt 1941?
He married Dulcie Welcome b. 1908 Joe Batt's Arm, Newfoundland and they had a daughter Wendy.
Roy died during WWII, a paratrooper I am told.
I believe that March of 2001, he was finally acknowledged with the Victory Cross Medal as announced on the BBC.
Dulcie is still living at this time in Camberly, Surrey, England and corresponds with her sister Matilda, through Wendy.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My grandfather is Gilbert F. Nicolson. I have no information on him except that he married Roberta Yorkton Bell. They had two daughters; Euphemia Bell Nicolson (my mother)and Marion Bell Nicolson. I seem to remember my mother mentioning that grandfather was from Isle of Skye. I do know that on her last trip to Scotland she brought home a family crest that looked just like the one on your website. She also mentioned something about being part of the Clan, McLeod of Stewart. I have been working on the family genealogy for many years but have never been able to get anything on my grandfather. Any information you may be able to provide would be welcome.

Congratulations on an extremely interesting site. My own Nicholsons were miners from Cumbria (Kirkoswald in the 18th century and Farlam in the 19th, then over to Tyneside in the 20th), but I cannot get past Martin Nicholson who married in Newton Reigny in 1711, in spite of that parish being full of Nicholsons at the time! My line married into families such as Raine, Mingins and Storey.

I have considerable experience of research in the north-east of England, being a full-time Professional Genealogist of 11 years standing and a founder-member and former Chairman of the Northumberland and Durham FHS. I am currently Chairman of that Society's Gateshead branch.

I have met, and am still in touch with, Harry Nicholson who runs the "breakaway" Clan Society in the US, and I have also met Rev Nigel, who has discussed several Nicholson families wiith me and given me some of his as-yet unpublished notes on them. I also have a considerable collection of Nicholson information of my own, especially as relates to Northumberland and Co Durham

I was born Jan 31, 1945 in Ottawa, am married with two daughters. Unfortunately, my father, mother, sister and I moved to Peterborough in 1952. We had no car and so most family ties ended then. My father was Henry Francis Nicholson, born in Ottawa April 9, 1906 to George Nicholson and Cecilia Purcell. Cecilia died when my father was 9 or 10 and my father spent some of his time in a Catholic orphanage. There were brothers and sisters to my father, Raymond, Cecil, Albert, George, Caroline, Ruby and Edna. Unfortunately I have not seen my cousins since I was 7 y/o. I hope to do some archives research in Ottawa through the census. I was wishing I had known about the great reunion that was organized in Ottawa this summer. If you have any suggestions as to where I could go from here in my search, I would appreciate it.

A great visit Bill. I am a soldier who was once stationed in Edingburgh in 1980. Whilst there I visited the city library to look up the family history. I read a small volume on the subject, which at that time was the only one available. The central thesis of this was that the root of the family name was to be found in the first three letters - 'Nic', which is a Galic word meaning 'Daughter of'. This, the book proposed indicated that the clan was of norse origin as in thise early days, norse society allowed the wife of the clan chief to inherit the title and power of the chief if he waas killed in battle. Such a woman was brought up to be a warrior queen. There would be no problems in her taking on the mantle of chiefteness. To indicate that the tribal leaders were now decended through the female line the prefix Nic was likely to have been adopted. This may or may not be true, but as it was the first authority I read, it tended to stick. I have seen no where, where this has been discussed, and am a bit dismayed that such a lot time and effort has been spent in promoting the view that the Macnicol name is pre eminant (or its galic roots). I have read the arguments as to why this should be, but judge that the 'Nic' of Nic(H)olson has just as much validity. Whats your view? Unless I can find some reasonable answer, I'm afraid I cannot subscribe to the current vogue. I find various sites and pages touting themselves as 'the authoratitive' answer, but precious little by way of hard facts to back it up apart from hearsay. Is there any hard evidence? Would love to hear from you and see what your thoughts are. Regards - david Nicholson/

We think we are descended from a John Nicholson (Nicolson) who left Liverpool at the age of 20 in 1699 bound to a Thomas Tyler for seven years in New England. We think he settled and married in Scituate, MA. Many of his descendents appear to have settled in Pike Co., IL before going on to Kansas and Oklahoma.

My Nicholsons are from Hatter's Bay, Portsmouth, Kingston, Ontario, Canada
John and Thomas Nicholson came to this area in the 1840's. I have reason to believe that Thomas, at least, was in Brockville before this.
They were ships' carpenters as was their father-in-law, John Kenning. John, my great great grandfather, married Mary Agnes Kenning and Thomas married Eliza Jane Kenning.
John and Mary Agnes have many descendants in this area and two of the three original houses on Richard St., Portsmouth,(a suburb of Kingston), are still standing. The third house was torn down by my grandfather and a bungalow replaced it. Three widows of this family are now living in the three houses.
My line is from John, my great great grandfather.
Amos James was my great grandfather.
William Amos -- grandfather.
John Amos Nicholson was my father.
I would like to learn about where John and Thomas care from in England. I have heard rumours of both Cumberland and Manchester but as yet have been unable to link up with anyone. I am also interested in anyone who is related to us. JNF

I am looking for information re: my gggrandmother, Grace Elinor Nicolson's ancestry. Her family lived in Culpepper, VA area pre-Civil War. They apparently had land through an AmRev land grant or a king's grant. At the age of 7 or 8, the family was moved to Jacksonville, FL. She had a brother named Robert who eventually became a newspaper editor in J'ville. She m. ca. 1860 to Jerome Livingston Wells in J'ville, and returned to his home of Big Stone Gap, VA. They had 2 boys: Jerome Jr. and Robert Nicholson (my ggrandfather) and 4 girls: Anna, Reland (sp?), Alma, and Elsa (Snead) of Princeton, WV (still living @ 93 y.o.) but apparently doesn't remember anything. Grace d. ca.1955 in Lynch, VA and was buried in Princeton or Bluefield. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
