Richard Nicholas of Somerset, England
Richard Nicholas was born in about 1730, probably in England. The first name Richard is chosen for this progenitor because of evidence which links son Richard with the Carrier family of Shenandoah Co VA.
In about 1755 in England, Richard married an unknown spouse. And, the Nicholas Family reportedly immigrated in the company of the Carrier Family to Virginia. Nothing more is known of Richard or his spouse.
