My info will not help any family search as I have no details of the man.
I only have a snippet of info of a Nicholson who made an unsuccessful attempt to get to NZ in 1878.

He may have had another go later on, I do not know.

The info is from a ship record and the kind of thing handed down through family folklore to ancestors.

I have a Shetland ancestor - James John Turnbull Nicolson Born Orkney Islands Scotland 1837 Died Thames NZ 1906 (my GGG Grandfather) ... (his father was John Nicolson Born 1800 & mother Grizel Williamson Born 1790) he married Christina Tait Born 1830 Died 4 July 1919 Pio Pio NZ ... (and their daughter Grace Catherine Tait Nicolson Born 1871 Lunnasting, Shetland Islands - married my GG Grandfather John Richard Scott on 22 Dec 1896 - NZ) Does that make sense to anyone, hope so!
