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 John Nicholson, who died at Irton in 1694. He and his wife (Elizabeth Beeby), both left Wills naming various family members.
I am descended from John and Elizabeth’s son Henry, who married Isabel Walker of Sandbank, Irton. Henry died in 1715, and I am descended from two of his children:
Firstly through Henry and Isabel’s daughter Elizabeth, who married Christopher Moor. Christopher and Elizabeth’s daughter Dinah Moor married William Nicholson of Scarbrow and Woodhow – see Nicholson Netherwasdale page.
Secondly through Henry and Isabel’s son Isaac, who died at Irton in 1772. Isaac married more than once, the wife Catherine Nicholson referred to in his Will was not the mother of his children. Isaac’s grandson Moses Nicholson, born in 1752 at Irton, died in 1816 at Broughton in Furness. Moses’ daughter Alice Nicholson married James Penny of Colton, and their daughter Jane Penny married Thomas Leece at Colton in 1856.
