Lisburn Exiles Forum

(Site is no longer operational pending a major long overdue overhaul of the entire website. Thank you for your patience. Site should still be visible and searchable for old posts.)

The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

Beano & Friends Lizzie Nicholson Back Lane

We just wanted to stop by to say thanks for sharing your
memories of Lizzie Nicholson, her shop, and her family.
We have since made contact with her granddaughter Joan living
up on the north coast and with her grandson David in England and
several cousins. Lizzie's husband John (Jack) Nicholson was the soldier in
the photo in her shop and now our quest is to find his military info and
if he was with the Irish Rifles. John had a brother James, whose granddaughters we have heard from and they have family in Lisburn & Dromore. They even sent us a photo of Lizzie! It's all been very exciting for us as we believe both John & James
were brothers to William Henry Nicholson who came to Canada and hence
here we are his granddaughter and great daughter finding our Lisburn roots!
