I believe I am related to Jemima Nicholas, My Great Great Grandfather was a gentleman called Charles Nicholas from Fishguard. Does anyone have any info on the Nicholas ancestry?

My grand mothers name was Georgina Nicholas who originated from Pembrokeshire I am told is a descendant of Jemima. Until recently our family lived in Broadmoor, Pembrokeshire.

My great great grandfather Charles Nicholas (Kidwelly) was an ancestor of Jemima Nicholas. He was the keeper of Kidwelly Castle. My grandmother was named after Jemima Nicholas and as a young woman, moved to Trebanos in the Swansea valley. Sadly she passed away in the 1970's. The are still relatives living in Kidwelly.

Hi all, my maternal grandfather, Samuel Hughes Nicholas, has always claimed a direct connection to Jemima Nicholas. I have just started searching info for my Nicholas family tree.
