The wife of Robert Nicholls was Elizabeth or Isabel. Source implies that she was not mentioned in husband's will, so died before 1548.[1]

"Robert Nicholls, of London, married Elizabeth or Isabel, died 1548; they had three sons, Thomas (the elder), John, and Thomas the Younger; these children and his grandson Robert, son of Thomas, are mentioned in his will, dated and proved 20 June, 1548, leaving a mansion in London, and large landed property."[2][1]

Is this a case of Mistaken Identity? She has been called Elizabeth Ann Pardee.

  • Joseph Pardee, late of Stamford, in his will dated 17 Feb 1762, mentions among others his daughter Elisabeth wife of Robert Nichols[3] Elizabeth Pardee b. 1734

Caution: When using the following source. It has since been proven that Francis Nichols of Stratford is not the brother of Governor Richard Nichols. The early generations of the genealogy belong to Governor Richard. But the families of Francis and Caleb descend from other Nicholses.

Hi Anne and Janine, it looks like this profile might benefit from staying project protected. The England Project can take her on. I'll add the England project box today. Please get back to me if you don't think that project protection is required. Thanks Gillian, Leader, England Project.

Pardee-236 and Unknown-1060 appear to represent the same person because: In light of the lack of a source for Pardee and the probable error made in generations Merge Pardee into Unknown

I am not at all comfortable with Elizabeth Anne Pardee. Without proper sourcing she should probably be merged into Unknown.

Toby & Janine, Do either of you have a source for birth 1520 in Ispwich. Ancestry family trees are not a valid source. England definitely, but 1520 just feels off, I'd rather leave it blank.
