Thanks Geoff.

England or Scotland??

The other Nichols and Landers I have are from Scotland. Only two with Landers

NICHOLS Alfred Conova - George - Mary Ann (Landers) Reg. year1856 Reg. no7390

NICHOLS Edwin Landers - George - Mary Ann (Landers) Reg. year1863 Reg. no15903

Further evidence I think Mary Anne is still in England in 1861.

Both look good, trees have them too, they do appear to fit.. Metcalfe is right..

Geoff
