Nicholas Snow was the grandson of Mark Snow and his 2nd wife Jane (Prence) Snow;

he was born in December 1663 in Eastham on Cape Cod,

part of the British Plymouth Colony (Massachusetts), New England.

In April 4, 1689, in Eastham, Barnstable Co., Plymouth Colony,

New England, Nicholas Snow married Lydia Shaw.

The couple had 8 children:[1]

Jonathan SNOW b: 30 JAN 1692 in Eastham, Barnstable Co.,

Province of Massachusetts Bay, New England

Mark SNOW b: 30 APR 1695 in Harwich, Barnstable, Mass.

Nathaniel SNOW b: 16 OCT 1697 in Harwich, Barnstable, Mass.

Joshua SNOW b: 18 AUG 1700 in Harwich, Barnstable, Mass.

Thankful SNOW b: 07 FEB 1702 in Harwich, Barnstable, Mass.

Sarah SNOW b: 20 MAR 1704 in Harwich, Barnstable, Mass.

Phebe SNOW b: 17 NOV 1705 in Harwich, Barnstable, Mass.

Prence SNOW b: 26 DEC 1707 in Harwich, Barnstable County,

Province of Massachusetts Bay, New England.

Nicholas Snow was named a Freeman on June 3, 1690,

in Eastham, Barnstable County, Plymouth Colony (Massachusetts).

After January 1692 he and his family moved to Harwich (now Brewster),

Barnstable County, province of Massachusetts Bay, New England.

Nicholas' wife, Lydia (Shaw) Snow, died June 14, 1712,

in Harwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts.

He survived her and made his will on June 25, 1751;

it was proven shortly after his death in May 1754 at Rochester, 

Plymouth County, Massachusetts, New England.

He had moved there in the 1720s.

So far as is recorded, Nicholas Snow did not remarry.

It is impossible that he was married to Lydia (Bangs) Higgins

(as is mistakenly reported on many family trees) for:

(1) she was 21 years his senior; (2) she was married from 1661 to 1691

and then she died in 1707, whereas Nicholas' wife,

Lydia (Shaw) Snow, whom he married in 1689, did not die until June 1712.

Will of Nicholas Snow[2]

"The will of Nicholas Snow of Rochester, yeoman, of advanced age," was made 25 June 1751 and proved 17 July 1754 [His estate was taken 29 May 1754]. He mentioned grandson, Joshua Snow (son of Joshua), granddaughter, Phebe Burge (infant daughter of Phebe (Snow) Burge, deceased), eldest son Jonathan Snow, son Nathaniel Snow, the children of son Joshua, deceased (Joshua and Mary Snow), the children of son Prence Snow (Joseph, Mary and Hannah Snow), daughter, Thankful Burge, and daughter, Sarah Hammond. He left one shilling to his son Prence Snow for "his leaving me and his family as he did." Nicholas was called 'Lt.' in an inventory of his estate taken 29 May 1754.
