- Biographical or historical data
- George Nicholas was born in 1726 in Williamsburg, Virginia, to George Nicholas (ca. 1695-1734) and Elizabeth Carter Burwell Nicholas (ca. 1690-1734), the daughter of Robert "King" Carter (1663-1732). After his parents died, George, along with his brothers, was probably raised by their uncle John Carter (1696-1742). He most likely attended the grammar school at the College of William and Mary. He served as clerk of the county court in Cumberland County, Virginia, from 1749 to 1752, and as clerk of the county court of Dinwiddie County, Virginia, from 1752 until his death in 1771.
