Amy Johnson Crow, on her blog No Story Too Small, has challenged her fellow bloggers to post 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. This is week forty-six, in my attempt to catch up before the end of the year!
My great-great-great-great grandfather was Nicholas Thomas. He was born sometime around 1770, likely in Cornwall, England.
Pallot’s Marriage Index for England shows Nicholas Thomas marrying Elizabeth Philipps in 1799. They had several children – I know of Reuben, Sarah, John, Ann, Elizabeth, William, Luke, Mary, Jane, and Nicholas.
The 1841 census shows Nicholas (70) and Elizabeth (60) living in Luxulyan, Cornwall with their children still at home, Luke (25), Nicholas (20) and Susan (14). Nicholas was a farmer.
He died in 1848. I have yet to determine when Elizabeth died.
