Another option could be that he was looking for gold.

If you were interested further you could try putting a request on the New Zealand board (with a link to this thread), lots of very knowledgeable and helpful people there who have access to other resources.  :)

Such a common name, however this sounds possible for a return to England:

"THE COUNTESS OF KINTORE, FOR LONDON  This famous clipper will take her departure from these waers for England tomorrow ... PASSENGERS - John Martin, Mrs Martin and child ..."

As well as son John James, there is also a birth for daughter Susan Mary MARTIN to parents John and Susannah in 1869 (1869/316) in NZ.

Modified to add: Actually born 22 December 1868

Ok, so this looks more like your John NICHOLSON, with grandparents James and Martha in 1861 at Harrow:

James Davis        56    Roxeth, Middlesex (sawyer)
Martha Davis        54    Ashwell, Hertfordshire
Elizabeth Davis    35    Roxeth
J    Grandson    5    Roxeth
John Nicholson    Grandson    M    9    Roxeth
RG09/782 / 51 pg 23

I see on your other thread https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=812915.0 (reply #7) that William's parents were possibly George NICHOLSON and Lucy. Just noting that this fits with the 1851 census above which has John NICHOLSON with mother Lucy.  ;)

Still not sure they are your family, but here is mother Hannah (and her son Thomas) in 1851 with Hannah's parents at Harrow:

James Davis         46    Harrow, Middlesex   (lawyer) [Modified: I think this should be sawyer]
Martha Davis         44    Ashwell, Hertfordshire
Hannah Nicholson    21    Harrow
James Davis          12    Harrow
Eliza Davis          8    Harrow
Eleanor Davis       4    Harrow
Thomas Davis    1    Harrow
HO107/1700 / 48 pg 4

(James, Eliza and Eleanor all have mmn BLOTT.)


I suspect this is father John with his mother in 1851 at Harrow:
Lucy Nicholson    62    Harrow, Middlesex
John Nicholson    39    Harrow, Middlesex  (painter and glazier)
HO107/1700 / 48 pg 4 [note, the same page as Hannah and Thomas]

It looks like this is father John (now widowed) and son Charles in 1871 at Harrow

John Nicholson    59    Harrow, Middlesex (house painter)
Charles Nicholson    15    Harrow
GBC/1871/1324/0207

Daughter Hannah Sophia appears to be with grandmother in Roxeth in 1871:
Martha Davis           65    Ashwell, Hertfordshire
Elizabeth Davis    45    Harrow, Middlesex
Eleanor Davis          24    Harrow, Middlesex
Hannah Nicholson    Granddaughter    11    Harrow, Middlesex
GBC/1871/1324/0173

Charles and father John also appear in the 1881 at Harrow on the Hill:
Charles Nicholson           25    Harrow, Middlesex (bricklayers labourer)
Mary Ann Nicholson    22    Paddington
Lucy Nicholson            1    Hendon
John Nicholson    Father        71    Harrow   (painter)
RG11/1357/69 pg 7

So I'm thinking the "J" in the 1861 census may not be your John NICHOLSON

A John NICHOLSON and Hannah DAVIS are on the same page for marriages March qtr 1851 at Hendon (3/179).

Modified to add:
There is a Thomas DAVIS reg Jun qtr 1850 at Hendon (03/223) with no mmn. A likely fit for the child Thomas in the 1861.
