      I have gotten back into some family history after sometime out and have, amongst others, been looking at the Nicholsons and in particular my grandmother Mary Elizabeth Saxby (Nicholson) and have discovered that her mother was Martha Jane Maddison who was married to William Nicholson as his first wife. Martha died at the age of 25 (September quarter Louth District 7a page 293)  Less than a year after the birth of Walter George and 3 years after the birth of my gran.
      I remember gran talking about her stepmother and expressing that she didn't like her. She never, as far as I remember, mentioned any stepbrothers or sisters but she did speak about Walter of whom I have no information about. (yet) Though she did say he worked at the Covenham Mill (yet to be confirmed)
      I vaguely remember  when we were very small kids someone called Lilly visiting my grans and there is something lurking in the back of my mind of us visiting her house which as I remember was within walking distance of gran and granddads house in Weelsby Street. We called her Aunt Lilly but thought she was a friend of grans. It may be that Lilly was one of grans half sisters. Maybe I can find something out about her eventually (and the rest of Williams second family)
       
      Ron Snowden in America has a very extensive tree containing the Nicholsons and the Snowdens  (Harriet Snowden was Williams second wife)
       
      Maybe we can meet up when you arrive in sunny, at the moment, Lincolnshire.
       
      All the best
       
      Roy (Saxby)
