NICHOLS, ARTHUR

Arthur Robert Nichols was the third son of Charles and Mary Nichols, who had nine children in all. He was born 19 November 1868 at Launceston, Tasmania. His father was a successful businessman, a partner in Dalgety Nichols and Company. After Charles died in a coaching accident in 1878 Mary brought her children to England, where Arthur attended school. In 1885 Arthur's elder brother Joseph bought Kuriheka, a 31,000-acre estate in Otago, and Arthur came out from England to help him farm. He drowned at Kuriheka on 10 July 1888 during a flood of the Island Stream. Arthur is buried with his father Charles Nichols.
