Thanks larkspur, the video is very interesting. I think I saw Nicholson's on the river there!

I have family who grew up in Newark around that time, I'll pass on the link to them.

Dear Sirs,

I am writing from Budapest, Hungary, because I would like to know more about Nicholson's Ironwork.
My flat is in a villa (on Budapest, Lendvay str) which was built 1896-98 upon request of Philip W Nicholson (died in 1904), who was the son of Nicholson's Ironwork owner. Philip managed the Budapest brach office of Nicholson's, which was opened in 1869, originally for selling (only) the Newark made goods. In 1872 they established their own repairing-servicing station, and in 1875 Philip Nicholson opened their big factory on Budapest.
I attached a copy about original draw of the villa: you can read the name 'Nicholson' on top, and you can see his sign on the right bottom corner.
Thanks 'larkspur' for the link of vimeo!
I try to find the factory on streetview in Newark, does it located on Mather Road?
Do anyone has any old photo about any Nicholson? thx and regards Zoltan

Zoltan, if you go to Google maps and search for "The Wharf Newark" Then once you have that put the little orange man onto the middle of the bridge. Turn him around and the building you see almost opposite The Castle Barge, with the square white tower is Nicholsons. Yes it is on Mather Rd.
If you do a full 360 turn, you can also see the Parish Church and the Castle.

Hi larkspur,
Many thx, I found it. Lovely like our building, however, our house was designed by a
master builder of Czech origin.
regards Zoltan

My wife's family owned the factory at Newark, we have a number of their tractor seats in the family! My Father in Law has much history of the family

Hi Cd8535!
Do you have any old photo about Nicholsons? I am interested on family members lived during the period 1860-1900, mainly Philip Nicholson (died in Budapest 1904). Thx and regards Zoltan

Hi Zoltan, I will ask my mother in laws family, Ben Nicholson lives in the USA, maybe he could help, he would have taken over the company if it had continued!! Might take a while though.  Carl

Would these have been the Budapest marriages of 2 of Philip's (Fülöp) children?

Hi! Roy G,
BINGO!!
I have just found many docs about Nicholson's family on the website of Budapest Archive (bfl.archivportal.hu). The daughters are Etelka and Margit.
