NICOL of Scotland and New Zealand

In 1840 William Nicol of Paisley emigrated with his family to Wellington New Zealand, on board the Blenheim.
I am descended from him through his son James. I have news cuttings of James's life, but am interested in any
stories of the family and descendants.

Of particular interest will be any material from their life in Scotland.
William (b. 1795) married Janet Jamieson. His parents were Walter Nicoll and Janet Rodman, but I have
no records of who Walter Nicoll was or where he was from or any dates.


I am a descendant of Sir John Jackson (1763-1820) and am interested in stories about both him and his family,
and any of his ancestors and descendants. I have quite a lot of these, which I will post as I get them
into publishable form. Some of the areas I am particularly interested in:

any information on Sir John's early years, from birth in Kingston to schooling at Eton and early career

any evidence of a relationship between his son, John, and a Hermnanjilda in Macao before John's marriage on 1832

what his son John did between leaving the East India Company and emigration to New Zealand.

And much more. That will do for a start.
