What We Know About This Family

An Overview of Their Lives

I found very little about this family. John Nicholson was mentioned in his father's will, which was probated in 1751. Mary Peach was the daughter of Thomas Peach and Mary Cowes, both from early Marblehead families. The baptism records of the Nicholsons' children give us the knowledge of how many they had, and the duplicate names tell us that their first three died young. No records could be found on two others, so they may have died young also.

Thomas, William, and Martha all married and had children. Emma married Captain Thomas Pedrick, the son of our direct ancestors Joseph and Sarah Martin Pedrick. She was 41 when they married, and I could find no records of children. His probate was one of two I could discover among his wife's siblings. Like some of his siblings, he had a good estate, but I could find no mention of heirs. Martha Nicholson also married a sea captain, Thomas Martin. They are our direct ancestors, and their first two children are also our direct ancestors.

A man from Essex County named Thomas Nicholson served in the Revolutionary War. It's possible he was the son of John and Mary.

From her death record, we know Mary, identified as the widow of John, outlived her husband.

Proof of Relationship

Proof of relationship is established with the will and vital records.

What Else We Need to Learn

The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.

The research on this family is complete, but a later check may reveal more information.
