My husband and I visited Ravenstonedale on October 12th 2010 and enjoyed our brief tour of the village tremendously. My great-great-grandfather's last name was Nichols (or Nicholls). I noticed some Nicholls' tombstones in St. Oswald's graveyard. Is there any way I could find out if there was a Nichols who was born in Ravenstonedale around 1810-20, and emigrated to America around 1840? I know this is very vague, but wondered if there could be an entry in the parish records that could be helpful?

Thank you!
