Family Trees can bear a lot of nuts

Did you know?
One of the Nickisson clan in 1854, at the age of 20, was imprisoned with hard labour for 6 months for house-breaking.

His two offences were stealing one square and sixteen planes (I presume joiners planes, not the flying type) . His Trade at the time was a Joiner
In 1857 he was caught again. This time he was charged with three offences: Stealing in total, twenty-five joiners planes, one saw, one hammer, one square, a timepiece, two brass saucepans and one pair of slippers. His Trade at the time was a Sailor!!!!!!!!!!!!
He was sentenced to four years penal servitude.
He died two years later in prison.
