Nicholas came to Salem a couple of years before Matthias.I have found no record of him in England. He was (I think) 12 years ol and he came over with a man and the man's son. I don't know the relationship he hd with them but we do know that Nicholas was convicted of Sodomy years later in Connecticut.
I am writing this without going back an gathering all of the fact again. I will do that when I have more time.
Nicholas lived next door, or close by Matthias in Hartford. Nicholas and Elizabeth were both listed in 1620. The name of Richard's parents were Nicholas and Elizabeth. the patriarch of a large extended family who moved with him the Dorchester ans then to Wethersfield and Hartford. That includes the Tinkers and the Hiatts.
I will put this together and post the complete story with what references I can find.
