Nicholas was the son of Geoffrey/Richard and Alice Dalling Fiske; he was born ca 1515 in Laxfield. He married Joan Crispe, daughter of William and Ann Goldbold Crispe, possibly as a second wife. He had six children, probably all but William by a first wife.[1]

'Nicholas Fiske appears on the Laxfield muster roll in 1543, and was taxed 3d. at Laxfield in 1542-1544. In the subsidy of 1567-68 he was taxed 2s. 8d. at Dennington, on lands valued at L2, and 9s. 4d. at Laxfield, on lands valued at L4."[2]
