My ancestor, Edward Peters born May 16, 1818, married Augusta Jane Nicolls, sixth daughter of General Sir Jasper Nicolls in 1841 at Calcutta Cathedral. I would like to make contact with any descendants since I have an old Nicolls family tree and much other information if anybody is interested.

Hi Jeanette,

I've checked the tree I have and have not found any Maria Nicolls born 1796 who married John Pearsall in 1816. The Nicolls tree I have commences with John Nicolls of Arran
b. 1560 who m. Fanny Buchanan and d. 1612.

However, I'm going to mail you privately with a suggestion about where else you might look. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Alistair

hi my name is margaret nicolls mccoy stamm, Sir Jasper Nicolls is the first name on my family tree that i've found. I live in Reading Pennsylvania where most of my family lives still. My mother was Anne Hall Hoff, her mother Sarah Taylor Nicolls, and her mother was Minnie R. Taylor. There is so much information on the Nicolls family, who married Muhlenberg's. Let me know if you need any information, I'd be interested in what you have also.

thanks
Peg Stamm

I am very interested in information on Jasper Nicolls. I've been researching my family history for only a month now and the family dynamics are so confusing. I know thought that Jasper Nicolls married Anne Badcock. in the 1700's. I've got that William Dann was his brother, but who were their parents? My grandmother was Sarah R. Taylor and her husband was Gustuvus A. Nicolls a descendent of the Jasper and William Dann. The Nicolls, Muhlenberg's and the Taylor families are all related. Let me know what you have.

Thanks

Hi Peg,

Thanks for your mail. [Sir] Jasper and William Dann Nicolls' parents were Gustavus who was born 2.11.1743 and Elizabeth Dunn. They were married on September 2, 1777 and he joined the British Army and was at one time Town Major of Dublin. She died March 17, 1787 and was buried in the churchyard at Finglaw] of Gillingham, Kent. He died in 1824.

[Sir] Jasper had other siblings too:

Anne Elizabeth, b. 5.12.1780, m. Rev. William HARRISON 12.11.1801 [11.4.1768 - 1.9.1846] Vicar of Fareham, died 9.7.1853. Had issue: 7 sons, 8 dau.

Oliver Anthony, b. 25.4.1786; d. 29.9.1800

George Dann, b. 12.3.1788; d. 22.5.1789 after smallpox inoculation in Dublin.

I hope that's helpful. I have much other information if you need more help.

Regards,

Alistair

Hello Alistair, You have done me the most amazing favour! I have been trying to track down a between link two Fareham, Hampshire families - Harrison and Kelsall - and Nicolls was the key; you have just taken me half-way. I would be very grateful if you could contact me off-list, at ronald.dunning@btinternet.com
