Hi Richo

Welcome to Rootschat. There is a lot of information on this thread.

I assume you know that through John James PHILP,  you are descended from first fleet convict John Nichols.

Hi Jenaya
Yes I have traced my ancestry back to John Nichols. I found that very exciting and very interesting. My great grandfather's (Sydney George Bratby) mother Hannah has been a mystery for such a long time, it was great to finally unravel all the loose ends. Her mother Mary Ann Amelia Clapham sure had a varied and colourful history with so many name changes ...... :)

Hi Richo

It is an interesting history. The John Nichols family society publishes a twice yearly journal and also has reunions every five years or so.
