Edited- NAPOLEON v MAM! ~Ryan Davies' brilliant take on the Jemima Nicholas Story- ;-) (next page)

My DNA has proven my link to the Welsh Heroine JEMIMA NICHOLAS who fought off the French at Pembrokeshire in 1797

I have a DNA match to a man who shares the original Jemima Fawr (Jemima The Great or Big Jemima) as a 5x Great Aunt through her brother Isaac

To say I'm chuffed is an understatement :-D :-D :-D

Well done Jem, what you wanted from your DNA.

:-D :-D <3 <3

Woohoo, Jem bet you're over the moon <3

Thank You Pat, Maggie and LG <3

I have just finished an illustrated book on the history of Jemima's brother and his Seamen descendants for my Great Nephew. There was one very slight niggle with this. Slight, but a niggle nontheless!

So glad I can hand this book over with no qualms now that it proves my paper chase to Jemima. :-D :-D :-D

Yes I am thanks Belle :-D <3

Wonderful Jem <3

Thank You Ann, Ann and Emms :-D <3 <3 <3

I just wish my Great Aunt was still alive to know everything about her Sea Captain Great Uncles and her 3x Great Aunt Jemima. She would have loved it all!

In the sheltered accommodation complex where she lived in her final years, they made her dress up in a Welsh lady costume and hat on St. David's day, because of the family legend of our link to Jemima.

I didn't have the technology or the skills when she was still with us sadly!

I'm off now to present The Seamen History to my lovely little Great Nephew who is eagerly waiting for it! He's the last in our branch to carry on the family name.

Thanks Everyone <3

Well done Jem.

Makes all those countless hours of looking and not finding anything worthwhile.



JemimaFawr Report 29 Sep 2019 10:56

Thank You so much Mr M <3


JemimaFawr Report 29 Sep 2019 10:59

Another huge delight for me was the pleasure that "The Nicholas Seamen History" (descendants of Jemima's brother Isaac) has given to my Great Nephew and his family.

This is why we all love what we do <3

Congratulations - Well done - I always knew you would get a connection.

DNA is helpful.

It proved a link to a cousin, living just round the corner from me I never knew existed. It proved that the man named as my father -really was my father - even if he was a true rotter.

Amazing thing DNA & found loads of other cousins too and extended my family tree by hundreds now.

Thank You Tabitha <3

DNA certainly is amazing! I'm pleased that you have been able to find lots of new rellies :-)
