Nicoll, John, Writer to His Majesty's Signet, c. 1585-1668
John Nicoll (surname also spelled Nicholl, Nichol or Nicol), solicitor, diarist and Writer to His Majesty's Signet, was born in Glasgow before 1590 and worked most of his life in Edinburgh. On 21 Oct 1606 he married Bessie, dau. of James Thomson, Edinburgh merchant; when she died in Aug 1627, the following 12 Dec he married Magdalene, dau. of Andrew Hutchinson, another Edinburgh merchant. Records indicate that he had at least one son, John Nicoll, Jr., 1609-1685. I have tentatively identified this line as part of my patronymic ancestry, and would like to find a living descendant of the male Nicoll line to arrange a y-DNA test for verification.
