Greetings again... au contraire, regarding Ms Reynolds, I mentioned that Henry was from a different time frame,i.e. IF Samuel were born during 1705 as I contend, he would have been 12 years old in 1717... had he been born in 1726 as Eugene and others state, he would have been merely a twinkling.
There certainly is a lot of confusion wrapped in this family and period and I, like Angie, (perhaps more diligently and with a closer working grasp) have yet to unravel the overall picture, but I suppose that is a primary reason for this discussion, so let us be about it:
Regarding David, he was a son of Samuel Junior, apparently not as close to his grandfather as others at the time, and the 1719 birth date must be pure fabricatication from the Mormon records (where anyone who could drool could enter perceived family info) no offense intended :o) his apparent birthdate was closer to 1750, and he in turn had a son named Samuel (abt 1774).
Henry Hicks may be our earliest known Hicks ancestor. According to The Complete Book of Immigrants, page 262, on December 22, 1658, Henry Hicks of Tetherington, England, was bound for six years to John Morgan, upholsterer, of Virginia. This fact is recorded in Bristol Record office, England.
On October 4, 1675, according to Virginia Land Grant and Patent Book No. Six, page 563, Thomas Cocke received a land grant of 1983 acres on the north side of the James River in Charles City County Virginia, for the transportation of persons, including Henry Hix/ Hicks.
Twelve years later, on April 20, 1687, according to the Virginia Land Grant and Patent Book Seven, page 556, Thomas Cock, Junr. in Virina Parish, Henrico County, Virginia, reeived a grant of 671 acres for transportation of persons, including Henry Hix/Hicks.
Henry Hicks had at least one brother, Stephen Hicks, whose wife's name is unknown, but they had at least one son, Daniel Hicks, who was married to Joan Hicks. They resided in St. James of Northam Parish, Goochland County, Virginia. Daniel's will of November 24, 1734 named a daughter, Winifred Hicks who married James Bates. They lived first in Goochland County, Virginia, then moved to Halifax County, North Carolina.
I also have this ^ in my record, and the Goochland County connection makes some sense, although much too early for our discussion. My connection to this family is a STEPHEN HICKS, who was listed fromthe Samuel Hicks Senior household as being his youngest son born abt 1759.
