Hi James,

in my note below, I mentioned why I thought that George was linked to his grandmother and not his mother. Since then I have found the death of Philip Nicholas senior in 1675. Margaret his wife nee Freke appears to have died following childbirth in 1661. It is their son Philip who is most probably the father of George, although there is little definite evidence for this. SInce the profiles remain untouched with no bio or sources, I will write a brief introductory bio for George (I can do the English side, have no idea as to his life in America ), Unlink him from Margaret who I will link to her parents, I will then link her as an uncertain mother of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Nicholas-2124 He would have been born before 1661 and died in 1735 (not 1674-1764

James, have you seen my answer to your G2G question ?

There was a George Nicholas of Manston .He was transported in 1722 probably to Virginia. He was the son of a Philip Nicholas but not of Philip and Margaret Freke. See [ https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:George_Nicholas_of_Manston_Dorset.&public=1 freespace page] Their marriage was too early , Margaret died over 20 years before the felon George was born(1695) This couple were probably his grandparents. George is probably a duplicate and I have proposed a merge. I could make the changes i.e to the dates of Philip father of George and to Margaret (unlink from husband, link as child to Thomas etc. but it would be good to have your input. The name Philip carried on in the family.Philip Nicholas owned Manston Mill in 1800

Hi James,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Collaboration with Pre-1700 Project members is essential for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles because those ancestors are usually shared by many descendants.

It looks like the England Project would be a good fit based on your twig of WikiTree. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)

Our vision is to build a collaborative tree with one profile per person. The farther back you go, it's likely you will find duplicate profiles to link into, so it's a good idea to do a search before you create a new profile.

Do you have Royal Ancestors? If so, they are already here! Please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their already existing profiles.

WikiTree strives to be a fun, collaborative, productive site. It's also different than what many people are used to. Please take advantage of the Help Menu in the upper right hand corner, our G2G Forum and of course, our Mentors :)

Do you have any questions I can help with?

Thank you for joining WikiTree. Our G2G Forum is searchable or you can post a question there. The Help Index is also an important place to find how to do most tasks. If I can be of help in any way, please let me know! Welcome aboard! Mary

I've been informally collecting family genealogy rather than researching it at libraries, court houses, etc. It's distressing to find so may "holes" in the family's background, but we must realize that people moved about extensively in the 'pioneer' days of the country, especially those who were not well-to-do. I come from that background.
