Nicholas Atkinson

Nicholas Atkinson (died 1610) was an English Catholic priest and martyr.[1]

According to the historian Charles Dodd[2] he was executed in York in 1610,[1] in the reign of James I. The Catholic Encyclopedia thinks that it was probable that Dodd had confused him with another Catholic martyr, Thomas Atkinson,[1] although there was a Marian priest called Nicholas Atkinson.[3]
