« on: Wednesday 16 May 18 17:18 BST (UK) »
I am Looking for any reference to M G Nicholls and any Children he may have had..He was married to J.
His father was Raymond Nicholls and mother Muriel Theresa Nicholls (nee Knight)
As far as I know,Muriels father,William Knight ,emigrated to Australia is 1921,from England.

The last known address I have for M and J is in,Sherbrooke La Trobe,Victoria.

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

It's probable that Muriel T Nicholls was only born 1920 in Sussex England which means she won't have married until the 1940's  so any children could still be alive

Rootschat has a "no living persons" policy so we would be unable to show any details of possible living relatives/descendants

Do you know when the son you are asking about died?  Is his wife still living?

This is the marriage of Muriel's parents

Marriages December qtr 1915 
William J Knight/Alice R D Miles  Steyning (Sussex)    2b   806    

I see you posted in 2015 here

Hello Carole W.
Thank you for the information.Yes Muriel did leave for Melbourne in 1921,on the "Commonwealth".I did not know about her brothers and sisters. She died in 2009.Her husband Raymond, in 1973 ,in a motor cycle accident I believe.
M was born in 1947,so would now be 71,so if alive or not,I do not know.
Muriels father,William ,had a bother ,Richard,who was my grandfather.
My father( James Knight) received a letter from Muriel in the mid 70s.We were living in South Africa at the time.He died in 2005 and I do not know what became of that letter.

You are discussing people who are still living.

As has been mentioned, this is not permitted.

You will need to modify your post -including the heading which uses the man's name- and delete the names of all whose death you cannot clearly cite.

I will ask a moderator to assist you.

I think this whole post should be deleted,Sue.I will try and think of another way of putting it,so as not to refer to possible living people.Can you help in deleting this post?
