The Jonas Nichols Brick

Sunday 13th July 2014

On a recent walk for a group from Eastleigh/Chandlers Ford, Geoff Watts told the story of Jonas Nichols, whose name is preserved in Southampton as the builder of houses in what is now known as Nicholstown (Nichols Road). A gentleman in the group lives in a house built at Eastleigh by Jonas Nichols and told us that the bricks have the initials 'JN' marked into them. He very kindly donated a brick to us and this was presented by Geoff to FoSOC at the AGM and we are very grateful for this latest very unusual addition to our archives.
