Welcome to the Nicholson Family Tree Home Page. Our family came from Berwick-upon-Tweed, England to Maryland around 1700. Early members of the family were distinguished naval heroes in the American Revolution. Significant information about the family exists in the New York Historical Society, Maryland Historical Society, Trinity Church, Sons of Cincinnati, Library of Congress, White Swan Tavern, Geddes-Piper Museum, Nicholson House and much more among the living descendants of the family. The family was influential in publishing the Star Spangled Banner and the orignal copy of the poem was in the family for 93 years. Enjoy the information I have assembled, please feel free to contact me with questions or additional family information.
