John Gambril (Francis) Nicholson (6 October 1866 – 1 July 1931) was an English school teacher, Uranian poet, and an amateur photographer. He was the quintessential Uranian, forming the center of that semi-underground world, and frequently writing introductions for and receiving dedications from his peers.
Nicholson's second volume of poetry A Chaplet of Southernwood (1896), celebrated the beauty of a Rydal Mount pupil (1891–94), William Alexander (Alec) Melling (1877 – August 9, 1962).
