If this is the correct Nicholson family, here is the probated will of Oliver, son of Emma & William.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS87-2928-Q?i=450&wc=4B25-FRL%3A1045247701%2C1590062766&cc=1865481

Birth: [as previously provided]

1864/7603   Nicholson   Oliver   Emma   William

Death:

1952/23314   Nicholson   Oliver   87Y

It looks as if Oliver was a partner in a well known Auckland law firm.
