Thomas Nickerson - In the Heart of the Sea

Thomas Nickerson was just 14 years old when he first sailed on a whaler with George Pollard. This image depicts him in later life.

Nickerson ran a Nantucket boarding house with his wife after he was finished with his seafaring years. The youngest of the Essex crew, he was the last of the wreck’s survivors to die.

His home still stands on North Water Street.
