From a self published book by Frances C Griffin, 1313 Butts Station Road, Chesapeake, VA 23320 entitled "Nuckles of Virginia"

"It says by tradition in the Nuckles family that three brothers came from York England. They were merchants. Their names were John, James and William. They came to Jamestown Virginia. They, with the colonists came over and established the first permanent English colony in America....." Further support of this story is found in THE NEW RIVER FRONTIER SETTLEMENT ON THE VIRGINIA-NORTH CAROLINA BORDER 1760-1820 by Paula Hathaway Anderson-Green* Published in the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, V86: pgs. 413-431 ,1978.

In Pioneer Settlers, (by Benjamin Floyd Nuckolls), Nuckolls states that according to family tradition three Nuckolls brothers from York, England, came to Jamestown, VA; their descendants spread out in Virginia. From the brother John came a line into Louisa Co., with a John who m. Mary Garland circa 1776. Then circa 1790 John and Mary's family moved from Louisa to New River on Meadow Creek, following a cousin Charles Nuckolls, who came in 1780. Eventually John and Mary returned to Louisa, but several sons remained in the Grayson area, as did descendants (some moved on to TN and KY)  

Note from Sandra Nuckolls Church
If you recall the story Marshall Wyatt wrote on Edison Nuckolls life history as a musician, It told of William Nuckolls, a family of boys that settled in Grayson County Virginia. They were originally from Zash, England, their names were James, John and William.
