Douglas Richardson's brief article in the American Genealogist (I think) back in the 1970s gives Nicholas as the father of Simon bapt Dec 1632 at Northam. Nicholas, b. 1578, formerly of Eastbourne in Sussex, is in Northam in 1598. Richardson took Nicholas b. 1578 and Simon b. 1632 and interpolated a second Nicholas b. 1605, but with a Nicholas b. 1578 (no death date) and a Nicholas d. 1651 (no birth date), I have come to believe they're the same Nicholas. After all, Simon lived to be 84/85, dying in 1717. Very fragmentary evidence (see my article in SUSSEX FAMILY HISTORY a few years back) suggests Nicholas may have been in Dutch service 1615-23[?] in America, before returning to England. Certainly his brother George's will (1620) suggests an expected but uncertain return to England. The "Lobden" spelling may well be Dutch -- it was also similar to the Devon spelling (Crediton, Cheriton) of Lobden or Lobdon.
