Thomas Nicholls - Barbados

Postby chrisc » Thu Apr 14, 2011 1:30 pm

I'm seeking any information on Thomas Francis Nicholls, born on the 27th April 1847 in St Lucy, Barbados. His parents were Thomas Nicholls and Frances Ann.

He may have married Elizabeth Ann Goodridge in 1871 in St Lucy.

He was in Queensland, Australia in 1877, where he married Emma Hemosek.

I don't know what you have so far - and I don't normally do research for others - but here are some ideas for your own research in the IGI.

Go to this URL...
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Search/ ... ch_IGI.asp
and insert Thomas for the First name, Nicholls for the Surname, drop-down to Caribbean Islands for the region and then click on Search.

Click on the name Thomas Francis Nicholls, and you will find this (the IGI may be where you got it from in the first place)...

THOMAS FRANCIS NICHOLLS
Gender: Male Christening: 25 APR 1847 Saint Lucy, Barbados, Caribbean
Parents:
Father: THOMAS NICHOLLS
Mother: FRANCES ANN

If you now click on the "Batch No.: " link at bottom left of this record a similar form will come up. Enter just the Surname Nicholls, and from the results start checking all of the records for parents.

** The "Source Call No." is the number of the microfilm, if you should want to rent that to your local Library and make a copy of the original record/s.

You will find another Thomas with the same parents, Christened 2 years later...

THOMAS SEALY NICHOLLS
Gender: Male Christening: 16 SEP 1849 Saint Lucy, Barbados, Caribbean

I did not come across any more children with the same parents, but that does not mean there are none, or that you won't find more yourself - you have to keep looking...

THOMAS SEALY NICHOLLS
Christening: 16 SEP 1849 Saint Lucy, Barbados, Caribbean
Parents:
Father: THOMAS NICHOLLS
Mother: FRANCES ANN

I also found the marriage you referred to...

THOMAS FRANCIS NICHOLLS
Marriages:
Spouse: ELIZTH. ANN GOODRIDGE
Marriage: 22 JUN 1871 Saint Lucy, Barbados, Caribbean

Now I used the same Batch Number form and entered just the First Name Frances. I found several within a few years of 1847... one of these may or may not be your Frances Ann, and one of the ways you can determine which it might be is by names given to later family members - her surname may be memorialised in a leter child of grand-child (such as Greaves, Boyce, Bowen, Bovell, etc.)

For instance, the first name of Thomas Francis Nicholls mother was Frances... so, putting the two christenings together, MAYBE his mother's name was Frances Sealy... just things you might want to look out for...
