From on Thu, 8 Feb 2007

Recently discovered your web site under Australian Pioneer Families & noted that the name BACKLER appears, in particular one of Henry & Elizabeth's twins Thomas Christian Backler, whom my husband Peter Backler is descended from. Thomas arrived in Robe, Sth Aust in the 1800's, he is buried there. Am wondering if you know anything of his life in England & his other family, I am happy to email you the details of the Sth Aust Backler's.

Box

From on Thu, 10 Mar 2005

My G-Grandfather the youngest son of Samuel Nicholls and Elizabeth Pryor/Prior also came to Australia, arriving with his family in 1889, he settled in Ballarat.

My 'cousin' Jan Wood in England has been helping with our Nicholls research and just recently we discovered that Robert Box (who arrived in Victoria with his children in 1858) was the husband of William, Samuel and Joseph's eldest sister Jane Pryor/Prior Nicholls. This of course means that there are descendants of four branches of Samuel and Elizabeth's family living in Australia.

Samuel and Elizabeth had
William, Samuel and Joseph who each came to Victoria
eldest daughter Jane Pryor/Prior Nicholls who wed Robert Box and came to Victoria
John who lived at times in both Devon and Wales,
Phillip who was an Innkeeper at Melindwr, Wales,
Elizabeth who married and lived at Tavistock
and Mary Ann who married and went to South Africa with her husband and son.

Are you connected to the Nicholls family? If you are interested in hearing more about the family I can send more information through to you.
Warmest regards,
Athalie Taylor
Launceston, Tasmania
