In Response To: Early Lancaster Co. Nicken/Nickens Family ()
Hi Jan. Very interesting!
On 13 May 1713 Edwd Nicken ("son of Richard Nicken") adm. of ye goods & chattels of Richd Nicken decd exhibited an inventory of the sd decd his estate upon oath...[Orders 1713-1721, page 3].
It could be that Chris never submitted an inventory of Richard's estate to the court. (I did not see one in the records).
I think it's too much of a coincidence that Edward Yockenhawken in 1709 became Edward Nicken in 1712, and Elizabeth Yockohoc in 1707 became Elizabeth Nicken in 1709. And Elizabeth named her child (born in 1705) Richard Nicken.
