red mail Nicholas / Nichlas in Crowan, Helston, Sithney, and Redruth
I am researching my family from Cornwall and am hoping that someone may be able help me? I have Thomas Nichlas born in Crowan in 1706 Thomas was born to William Nichlas and his wife, Christian Treleeva in the parish of Crowan. He was baptised on the 12 December 1706 in the parish church. At the age of 20, in Sithney, Thomas married Frances Rapson who was just 17. Frances was the second of ten children born to Thomas Rapson and his wife, Frances Saundry. On 8 November 1728 their first child Thomas was born. He lived for just 9 months and died 4 August 1729. Their second child, Mary, was born 30 March 1730 but only lived for 8 months and died 21 October 1730. Athanasius is the only viable child of their union and his mother Frances died when he was just three years old on 20 February 1734. Thomas then married 28 year old Mary Hodge on 7 April 1735. The couple had their first child Frances, 24 February 1735. Once again this child died on 21 October 1737 aged only 22 months. Their last child is Thomas. He also died, on 26 September 1740. Thomas Nichlas died in 1792, aged 82. William Nichlas b 1670 William Nichlas was born in Gwinear, Cornwall on 10 November 1670. His father was James Nichlas. William married Christian Treleeva on 4th April 1702 in Helston, Cornwall. The couple had 6 children, all born in Helston: Jane 1702 Mary 1705 Thomas 1706 - 1792 Christian 1713 Lucretia 1718 Elizabeth 1721 I would like to know if anyone could shed any light on these two families?
