How did you find our site? Google Search
Comments:
I have been a past member and was was looking at the information some of the families have put on ancestry and found an error with the birthplace of Anna Maria Lloyd Stormy Parker (married to William Griffith Hughes). I do not have my tree on ancestry as one error is compounded when everyone who visits the site copies. They say that she was born in China or Tibet (do not have any idea where that came from) when in fact she was born on the voyage to Australia from England. She was born off the Cape of Good Hope and this is reflected in her marine birth certificate. I am happy to share information though with anyone who is interested. Jan.

My Great Great Grandfather was Thomas Mitchell and he married Ann Philp, whose father was Alexander Philp and Sophia Nichols was her father.
I am tracing the Mitchell family tree and so I have found information back to Thomas, and I am investigating back a bit further. I have found you gather more information when you search further that you initially think.
I was born in Newcastle, NSW, and now live in London with my Irish husband and daughter. I do not have my own website.

How did you find our site? Ward-Pugh connection
Comments:
My father's mother's GF was Jesse Pugh Ward. His mother was Elizabeth Pugh. His father, Wm. Ward, Jr. and GF "Old William" were "Regulators" captured at Alamance Battlefield, NC by the Royal Governor's militia and forced to swear allegiance to the Crown and Colony or hang. They signed. Five others elected to hang, along with leader, James Pugh. This was several years prior to the uprising of the Sons of Liberty in Boston. James's family were Welsh Quakers who left Great Britain as indentured servants for Pennsylvania. They emigrated to North Carolina after being excommunicated. I have never met a living Pugh but am interested in fleshing out as complete a family tree as I can.

Im a descendant of John Nicholls - through the Kellick line. My grandfather was John Sydney Charles Kellick (born 23.8.1887)- married (26.10.1909) Louie Desaxe (born 26.10.1888). Their daughter Florence (eldest child) was my mother. If possible I would like to go on an email list, with updates of info. on the family and/or reunions. I was at the 1988 reunion at Gunnamatta Bay - which was a fantastic day (met people that we'd known in childhood that were distantly related - what a surprise!!!) Thank you for making this available; my time is limited for doing in depth research - due to work, family commmittments and other matters. Once again thank you it is very much appreciated. Look forward to hearing news.

Searching through Rootsweb, came across the listing for Doris Lillian Goss/Nicholls, daughter of James Goss and Louisa Nichols.
I am wondering if this Louisa is OUR Louisa Nicholls...who at the time of the birth of Doris was married to William Clulow
Louisa had siblings Thomas, Ellen and Albert Nicholls, and were the children of Thomas Odgers Nicholls and Mary Courtis Searle.
I would be interested to know more...are you able to assist???

with best wishes
Pamela Nicholls in Victoria, Australia

Congratulations to Laurie Holmes & others responsible. During a trip to U.K. in 1984 my wife, Muriel, & I found at the parchment records of the trial of Ann Pugh who married John Nichols and then the record of the trial of William Windley, the details of which are in the "John Nichols First Fleeeter". Since then we have both become dedicated family researchers.

Best wishes to my many relatives.

I have just read a wonderful book by Brian Nicholls, called The Saucepan in the Sky. After talking to my parents about the book they told me that my father relatives were the Nicholls, I was curious why my great grandmother moved to Western Australia and if the author of this book was in some small way related. Thank you for the info I have learnt.

Congratulations on a very informattive site. Someone has spent hours digging up all the information!!!!
It is such a large family to trace!!!

Their 4th child was Emma Bradney born 1856 and she married John Wildman. They had a son in 1877 called George James Wildman who married Margaret Deitz. Their 9th born child was my mother Faith Doreen Wildman who married my father Lionel Alderman. I was one of two children (the eldest....Helen Margaret Alderman born on the 10th August 1950 and I have a sister Lynelle who was born on the 7th March 1954. I have traced this back and am very keen to meet any of my distant relatives should anyone wish to correspond.

Hello,
Could you help me please? I'm seeking my ancestors in Essex, and have got back to Jonathan Nichols, a miller, one time resident in Hartest, Suffolk, who later called himself John on his sons (Walter's, my GGrandfather) Marriage Cert. Jonathan married Martha Kent on 13 Jul 1831, at Saffron Walden, Essex. Family talk of many years ago spoke of his father as another miller named John- and wealthy too! I have just found another Jonathan Nichols, born 7 Oct 1804, son of -guess what- John and Elizabeth Nichols at Loughton, Essex (now in London), who could fit as this father. According to the IGI they had children in Colchester in 1805 and 6.

With all these John/Jonathans in Essex, so close to London, could there be a connection?

It's a long shot, but could you help me please?

Thanks, John Christiansen,
accross The Ditch, in NZ.

We are searching our John Nichols line, which is said to be from Scotland. We haven't found our "Scotland" John, as yet, until he shows up in Iowa, USA (in 1860's) where he had several children including a John F, who married and had a John Joseph, who married and had my husband John. It appears that the John Nichols of this Society came from England but that really isn't so far away from Scotland so wanted to add this note. Any help would be wonderful.

My Nichols ancestors originated with Francis Nichols 1590/1649 who arrived in America in 1636/7. He resided in Southold, Long Island, New York and in the Connecticut Colony.
The story of the Nichols family to Australia is facinating. Best wishes to the study of the family descendants.

Comments:
Good site so far, Rod, just some overprinting with the menu of the sections on site, and the picture of the Scarborough has over lapped the Title of the web site. It's very distracting to see the flashing banner advertising on the Home Page, though I can understand the reasons to have advertising.
