Hi anonymous,
 
According to the NSW BMD (http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/) he was 84 when he died...
9437/1976 NICHOLLS JOSEPH ERNEST DIED LIVERPOOL 084
 
His birth appears to be in the NSW BMD too...
19092/1891 NICHOLLS JOSEPH E JOSEPH BESSIE LEICHHARDT
 
As is his parent's marriage...
2289/1884 NICHOLLS JOSEPH LOGAN BEESIE CANTERBURY
 
He appears to have a number of siblings, including Roy, recorded too...
5924/1885 NICHOLLS JOHN JOSEPH BESSIE ASHFIELD
4926/1887 NICHOLLS ARCHIBALD E JOSEPH BESSIE LEICHHARDT
6878/1889 NICHOLLS CONSTANCE E JOSEPH BESSIE ST PETERS
19092/1891 NICHOLLS JOSEPH E JOSEPH BESSIE LEICHHARDT
5962/1894 NICHOLLS ROY E JOSEPH BESSIE BATHURST
10928/1896 NICHOLLS THALMA G B JOSEPH BESSIE BATHURST

Based on some Google search results that I haven't had time to follow thro on it appears that Bessie and the Logan family arrived in Australia on the vessel "Boyton" in May 1877.
 
Unfortunately, coincidentally there was a Joseph Nicholls who perished on the Titanic and search results are hard to filter as a result.
 
Good Luck.

Further to above it appears that the Logan family sailed to Sydney on the "N. Boyton" but unfortunately the passenger list (http://mariners.records.nsw.gov.au/1877/05/074nbo.htm) does not provide the nationality of the Logan family.
However it does give you her parents and sister's ages...
LOGAN    JAMES         35         IMMIGRANT     
LOGAN         MRS.    30         IMMIGRANT     
LOGAN    BESSIE         9         IMMIGRANT     
LOGAN    ANNIE         6         IMMIGRANT
Its plausible that Joseph Nicholls (snr) wasn't an immigrant and there are two possible births apparent if he wasn't...
1782/1859     NICHOLLS     JOSEPH     JAMES     ELIZABETH     SYDNEY
7508/1861     NICHOLLS     JOSEPH     JOHN         ANN     GOULBURN
Thank you Allen-6100 for this quick response.
Bessie Logan I believed came from America. And it is possible that Joseph was born in Australia. The info supplied buy my dad is very sketchy.
I will see where your leads take me. I believe there are a few skeleton in the closet so to speak and I guess those generations did not speak about these things very often. Thank you for your responses.
Hi Allen-6100
If you feel inclind could be my nominee so I an join WikkiTree.
Thank you kindly.
Hi anonymous, if you send me a private message, following the link from my profile page, that includes a valid email address then I can send you an invitation.
Cheers

anonymous, the profile you link to is for a Joseph Nicholls who's father was William and who didn't have a son called Joseph Ernest ?

Why have you linked to it, as it doesn't appear to be related to the people you mention?  How certain are you that your Joseph Nicholls snr came from Cornwall?
