Not "hard & fast" but Nicholson in Scotland is a Skye name & Nicolson a Shetland name.

Thanks Skoosh

That's fascinating - and useful for the extra mile or generations you can travel back with DNA ancestral matches - I  will keep an eye out for those places now

Hi, I sent you an email earlier today ,not sure if you received it as I have just noted that your profile says that your email address is no longer valid so I'm posting here as a backup.
Did you ever find Jane's parents?  Could this be the family on the 1841 census,living in Dunblane
William 55 born Perth Army Pensioner
Elizabeth 45 born England
Margaret 15 born Ireland
Jean 10 born Ireland
A Margaret Nicholson married a William Gardiner in Dunblane 1850.
Not sure if this will help or just muddy the waters.
