William Nicholson, Blythe
« on: Monday 01 October 07 18:54 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am looking for information regarding William Nicholson and his wife, who apparently ran the Beehive public house for many years through the middle of the 19th century. If anyone is able to find info regarding him or his family it would be greatfully received.

Does anyone know where the Beehive was, and if it still exists?

Thank you all in advance

Martin

Hi Martin,
were you wanting personal info or census information perhaps?

1871 RG10; Piece: 3459; Folio: 89; Page: 5 has him as a farmer and publican living at East Gate Worksop with employees and family.

I can post if you want this kind of stuff.

best wishes

Thanks Heywood,

The answer is that I'm looking for everything I might be lucky enough to find, I have no census info, and I know very little of William and his family, though I believe he was married to Mary HINDS.

If you have access to census images, they would at least give me a start. Indeed I did not know he had gone to Worksop before your posting.

Thanks again
Martin

I think this is your man- 1891 names The Beehive but it is Worksop. (note that the street number changes)

I'll work backwards:

Free BMD death June quarter 1898 Worksop 7b pg 16 William Nicholson aged 68 yrs
can't see a death for Mary nor can I see her in 1901.

Heywood,

How can I thank you. You have found 40 years of this families life in one morning!

I have been struggling to understand the Nicholsons for some time, and you have helped enormously with regard to this particular branch. Many thanks for the efforts you have made, they are greatly appreciated.

back again - sorry

just thought I would look on Family Search and note that William's parents are listed as Edward and Elizabeth. (even though 1841 ages are rounded down - wondered about Fanney's age)

Free BMD has a marriage December 1837 quarter possible spouses Edward Nicholson and Frances Fisher.
Checked and young Fanney is on Family search - Edward and Fanny.

that's it I think
best wishes again
