Early Origins of the Nicholes family


The surname Nicholes was first found in Austria, where the family was anciently associated with the political and religious conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. The family founded numerous branches, many of which acquired manors and estates in surrounding regions, where they contributed to the prosperity of their society. The name refers to St. Nickolaus, the patron saint of seafaring merchants and the protector of children.
