We have four Nicholson families in our tree, one at Alston on the Holmes side, the others at Eskdale, Irton and Netherwasdale on the Armstrong side.
At the top of this branch of the tree is Henry Nicholson, who died at Eskdale in 1626. The information we have on this family came from Margaret Russell, who helped greatly with my research, and was a true inspiration.
Henry Nicholson’s family lived at Bridge End, Boot, for many generations. Henry had a great-grandson, another Henry Nicholson, who was born at Bridge End in 1676. The younger Henry married Elizabeth Dickinson and they had a daughter Sarah, who married Isaac Tyson of Crook, Ulpha in 1728.
The Dickinson family appears in the Percy survey of Eskdale in 1578, several generations of them lived at Arment House; however they are not an easy family to research as they all seemed to be named John or William!
There are a number of Nicholsons in the Percy survey of Eskdale in 1578. I am also descended from Thomas Nicholson of Boot, who died in 1633 leaving a wife and two daughters, Jennet and Isabel. Jennet married Thomas Tyson of Borrowdale Place.
