Nicholas Freese's father was born in Hamburg, Germany, according to his descendants. Nicholas Junior moved to London to practice as an artist. Wakefield's Merchant and Tradesman's General Directory for London lists him in 1790 as a Portrait and Landscape painter, living at 426 Strand, London. His other known addresses are 411 Strand and 9 Percy Street, London. On 29th August, 1791 he married Mary Stokes from Southwark.
