Birth: Mar. 1, 1666
York County
Maine, USA
Death: Sep. 10, 1706
Nantucket County
Massachusetts, USA

Nicholas death was reported by Stanley L. Mack's notes as July, 10, 1706; however Lloyd Cartwight lists the date as September 10, 1706, which would agree with the old style in which it was written "Died ye 10 Day of the 7 mo 1706". (Julian vs. Gregorian and calendar changes). Nicholas was probably born at the Isles of Shoals, Maine.

Nicholas I was the only child born to Edward and his first wife, Elizabeth (Mary) Cartwright. His mother died very young and his father then remarried.

Orange Rogers and Nicholas Cartwright I married in 1693/94. They had five children:

Sarah b. Oct. 13, 1695 ("born ye 13 day of ye 8 mo 1695" would be Julian calendar, or Oct. 13), married George Brown of Boston on July 20, 1715, d. July 6, 1719;

Elinor b. Oct. 14, 1697 (borne ye 14 day of ye 8mo 1697", Julian calendar wuold be Oct. 14), trying to verify if she married Henry Bellamy of Boston on Apr. 3, 1719;

Hope b. Aug. 27, 1699 (borne ye 27 day of ye 6 mo 1699, Julian would be Aug. 27), married Thomas Crook;

Lydia b. Dec. 15, 1701 (borne ye 15 day of ye 10 mo 1701, Julain would be Dec. 15), married John Descow/Discoe;

Nicholas II b. Jan. 4, 1705 (borne ye 4 day of ye 11 mo 1705, Julian, or Jan 4), married Patience Burgess, died May 24, 1782.

After Nicholas death, Orange married Morris Faris on March 18, 1708. They moved to Chatham on the elbow of Cape Cod, Mass.
