Diary of Evelyn Louise Nicholson

Trip to Australia, 1897

Evelyn Louise (Olivier) Nicholson (1867?-1927) was the wife of Charles Archibald Nicholson. They married 1 October, 1895. Her death notice in the London Times 12/3/1927 gives her age as 60, so she was born in either 1866 or 1867.

Charles Archibald Nicholson (1867-1949) was the eldest son of Sir Charles Nicholson (1st Baronet), one of the founders of the University of Sydney. He succeeded his father as 2nd Baronet in 1903. (See DNB 1941-50).

The diary was bequeathed to the University in 1988 by her son, Sir John Nicholson, 3rd Baronet. It is accompanied by a book of watercolour paintings done by Evelyn and Charles on the trip.
