On the 1891 census McGillvray census, William 40 is listed as born England. The rest of the family was born Ontario according to the census.
Is this the right family?
There is another William Nichols in McGillvray with wife Maria. They are still there in 1901.

Here is the same family of William's on 1881 census McGillvray.
NICKELS
William H, 33, b England, farmer
Catharine, 38, b Scotland
Daniell, 13, Ont
William C, 9
John F, 7 [Franklin on 1891 census]
Walter, 4
Flora Ann 3
Children all born Ontario.
The children all match up with 1891 census.
Hannah on 1891 census looks like a second wife. That's why the age difference. Mary Violet and Sarah Jane as likely daughters with new wife.

Catharine Nichols on 1881 census died 1879, maiden name Katherine Morrison.
William and Katharine married 1868.

What years were William and Hannah born? Married? Children's names?
