Alvin Smith, the V-CC "marque enthusiast" for Major Nichols has done up a really great bio of Major Nichols. I couldn't begin to do justice to his story, but you can read it all here:

http://www.blackcountrysociety.co.uk/articles/nicholls.htm

I think he is one of England's many under-recognized builders of really fine frames. Alvin has a registry going, so anyone with a Major Nichols (or aware of him) should let him know about it.
