I was born in 1959 in Pasadena, California. My childhood was peripatetic and now I live in London. I am married to a lady from Hong Kong and we have three children. By profession I am a geologist.

I am a proud American whose ancestors can be divided into fourths:

1. The Quakers. Pre-1700 arrivals in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, later moving to Indiana. My paternal grandfather

2. The Louisianians. Acadians and others descended from the earliest ships arriving in Nova Scotia in 1610. Plantation builders, lawyers, doctors. My paternal grandmother

3. The late-comers. Poor farmers arriving in the 1860s from Scotland and Germany. My maternal grandfather

4. The Great Migration ancestors. Puritan arrivals on the Mayflower and Governor Winthrop's fleet. My maternal grandmother

My interests in genealogy cover all of the above and more.

Part of my family comes from Louisiana and before that from French Canada.
I like the challenge of writing an interesting biography...
My home state. One of my great great grandfathers was a 49er.
Do like sorting those errors...
Nearly half my family's ancestor's came from England to the United States. The rest from France, Scotland and Ireland. So once you have chased back the Americans you end up recrossing the pond...
The origin place of the Trueblood family and where their Quaker journey began.
Where I have spent most of my life. A city with more layers than an onion...

My Grandmother, Haydee de Bautte Brickell, was born in New Orleans in 1904. Her grandfather on one side was a doctor in the city, a member of the Committee of Public Safety prior to the Union assault and well-known enough to have a book written about him by George Washington Cable. Her grandfather on the other side fought at Shiloh. It's an eclectic bunch, lawyers, doctors, newspaper editors and plantation builders.
My mother's maiden name and the most recent of my ancestors to come across the Atlantic. My great grandfather, Stewart Nicolson was born in Caithness in 1865. I have been working on the Caithness ancestors.

Hi Stephen,

I was in touch with you some time ago - I've been working on a page for the 'A House Through Time' series set in Newcastle (, and am wondering what to do next. It's not quite finished, needs a few edits and a few more profiles to make, but getting there. I see that the other two local topics in the England Project work in different ways - the Westbridge Cottages work as a category and the Beckingham Quakers have a link to the page in the text of their profile, not a category. Grateful for advice on how to proceed from here - I know that I will have to go back and edit each of the profiles to link them to the page, but should that be as a category or as a link in the text? Thanks, Marjorie

Hi Stephen,

I'm thinking of setting up a free-space page for the residents of 5 Ravensworth Terrace, as featured on the recent BBC programme 'A House Through Time'. Do I just set it up? It would be great if it can be attached to Northumberland as a topic - I saw that Devon has a free space page ( which is in 'Devon, Topics'; currently there is no 'Northumberland - Topics' category, can I just make one? Thanks, Marjorie
