SEPTEMBER 11, 12, 13, 2015

Our annual reunion will be in Plymouth, Massachusetts this year. The 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing on Plymouth Rock will be celebrated in 2020, a short five years away. There will be many events planned leading up to this national observance. The Nickerson Family will start things off with a reunion to remember. Beginning on Friday, September 11th, our first event will be a visit to the Mayflower replica in Plymouth. It is easy to find right in the Harbor adjacent to Plymouth Rock. If you have never been or not visited recently, you really want to check this tiny ship out. In the evening, we will enjoy refreshments aboard the Pilgrim Belle while we cruise the harbor.

All Saturday events will be held at Plymouth Plantation. Coffee hour will be followed by our annual meeting. Lunch will be served in the same room. The afternoon will be free time for you to visit the plantation or a number of other sites in Plymouth of interest. The evening will find us back at the plantation for dinner and a visit from Stephen Hopkins, a Mayflower passenger.

On Sunday, we will be back on Cape Cod at the Nickerson home in Chatham for our annual picnic on the grounds of the Nickerson House and the Caleb Nickerson House. In addition to picnic fare, we will enjoy open hearth cooking get by Maureen Leavenworth.

Plan now to join your cousins for the weekend of September 11,12, and 13, 2015. Registration will be available on this Web site as well as a paper form sent to members by mail in late spring.

Welcome to the home of the Nickerson Family Association!

The Nickerson Family Association, located on Cape Cod in Chatham, Massachusetts, is devoted to the Nickerson family name and the descendants of William and Anne (Busby) Nickerson.

The primary goal of the Association is to research and preserve Nickerson genealogical information. The Nickerson House and Genealogical Research Center, located in Chatham, maintains an extensive, growing collection of Nickerson records and memorabilia, based on over 100 years of research, as well as a large library of Cape Cod history and genealogy.

Adjacent the Nickerson House is the Caleb House, a 1827 home purchased with member contributions then relocated and restored on land that contains William Nickerson’s original home site from about 1664. The Caleb Nickerson House is open seasonal hours Wednesdays 9AM-1PM June 12th thru Sept. 25th.

The Association holds annual reunions and sponsors many events and projects throughout the year. Every Nickerson descendent or friend of the association is invited to share this great heritage and to help preserve it for future generations.


There are presently five published volumes of The Nickerson Family genealogy, which bring descendants of William and Anne Nickerson to the ninth generation. In addition, family records and charts are housed in the Genealogical Research Center to help you identify your Nickerson ancestors as we work on bringing the genealogy database and publications up to the present generation.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the Nickerson family, the Nickerson genealogy, and all that we have to offer to members and friends in the community.
