I assume he was related to Jasper Nicholls as my great grandfather was later named Jasper Nicholls Anderson but I have nothing else to go on.

That could well be her, thank you.  Oliver Nicholls was Major then but could have been promoted to Lieut Gen later and Mary in this tree has a brother William Jasper.  Cannot find anymore info on Oliver.

I was trying to find a connection to Gen Sir Jasper Nicholls because the Anderson side of my family through the Graves were connected to him and he was in India and that is where the Brookes were but I can't find one.

This is Malta.
oh excellent, have found a Wikipedia article on Oliver Nicholls: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Nicolls

 

And Oliver Nicholls was the nephew of Jasper Nicholls

Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your welcome .....I saw the articles while looking for evidence that Oliver was Mary's father. I should have mentioned that.
well thanks a million.  I have been getting more info so her profile is looking good now.  seems she had at least one child but can't find any records for her?  http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Nicholls-663
