Note: The marriage recorded on 25 September 1872 in Grand Bank Methodist records was of John Williamson, fisherman, and Elizabeth Nicholle. Was this John Williams, son of Charles, or was it someone else entirely? It is a little unusual that the couple named their first son after the mother's father when the custom was to name the first son after the father's father. One source indicates that the marriage record says that the John Williams, who married Elizabeth Nicholle, was a Welshman. John Williams, son of Charles and Elizabeth (Patten) Williams, was born at Grand Bank. Therefore, it is not certain that John Williams[on] who married Elizabeth Nicholle was indeed the son of Charles and Elizabeth of Grand Bank.
