Nicholls

From on Thu, 10 Mar 2005

My G-Grandfather Joseph 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 died before 1858 when Robert brought the children 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.

William was actually married three times. His first marriage to Anne Woolcock(s) was in Wales 27 March 1848. They had three children Martha Woolcock(s) Nicholls - born 1848, William (I have just received his birth certificate) and another child - still trying to find the birth for this child. William travelled to Australia with his brother Samuel on the John and Lucy - 1854. For some reason his wife and children did not accompany him. Anne died in 1856, I don't know what happened to the children.
Warmest regards,
Athalie Taylor
Launceston, Tasmania
