If James & Rose are the parents, this is a sibling's marriage in Ontario:

Name: Thomas Nicholson
Event Type: Marriage
Event Date: 18 May 1887
Event Place: Kingston, Frontenac, Ontario, Canada
Age: 25
Birth Year (Estimated): 1862
Father's Name: James Nicholson
Mother's Name: Rose Mcconville
Spouse's Name: Alice Corrigan
Spouse's Age: 24
Spouse's Birth Year (Estimated): 1863
Spouse's Father's Name: Michael Corrigan
Spouse's Mother's Name: Sarah Flanagan
Registration Number: 003640
GS Film number: 1870216
Digital Folder Number: 004529151

The 1891 Canadian Census suggests that Thomas is older than his marriage record suggests:

Sydenham Ward, City of Kingston, Ontario

Nicholson, Thomas, aged 33, married, born Ireland, parents b. Ireland, Roman Catholic, merchant & butcher
Nicholson, Alice, aged 29, wife, married, born Ontario, parents b. Ireland, Roman Catholic
Nicholson, James, aged 3, son, born Ontario
Nicholson, Rose, aged 8 months, daughter, born Ontario

In the 1901 census, they are in the same place:

Nicholson, Thomas, Head, aged 43, born 20 March 1858 Ireland, immigrated 1881, Roman Catholic, butcher
Nicholson, Alice M., Wife, aged 37, born 14 February 1864, born Ontario
Nicholson, James F., Son, aged 12, born 30 October 1889, born Ontario
Nicholson, Rose M., Daughter, aged 10, born 18 July 1890, born Ontario
Nicholson, Alice I., Daughter, aged 8, born 14 February 1893, born Ontario
Nicholson, Thomas V., Son, aged 6, born 17 December 1895, born Ontario
Nicholson, Daniel C., Son, aged 5, born 5 December 1897, born Ontario

The 1911 census shows them in Kingston East, with children, Irene, born July 1892, Victor, born October 1894, Cleary, born August 1896. Makes you wonder who gave the birthdates on this census, as they do not match those of the 1901 census.
