  • Marriage: He and Hannah Galusha were married on June 5, 1735 in Rehoboth, Bristol Co, Massachusetts.
  • Death: John Hix died on March 17, 1799, at age 86, in Rehoboth, Bristol Co, Massachusetts.
  • Note: From Bliss, History of Rehoboth (1836), p 187-8: HICKS' CHURCH. This church, like most of the others we have spoken of, received its name from its fouuder, the Rev. John Hicks. He was born in Rehoboth, May 10, 1712, and was ordained the first pastor of this church, November 10, 1762. In 1780 this church consisted of 106 members. In 1784 it embraced 100 members, and Mr. Hicks was still its pastor. In 1795 he was still living, but so infirm, through age, as to be unable to preach. His eldest son, Jacob, born at Rehoboth, January 1, 1740, was pastor of a church which grew out of this, under the preaching of the Rev. Elhanan Winchester. The origin and history of this church, formed by Mr. Winchester, is thus stated by Backus, vol. III. pp. 149, 150: "Another church was raised out of the other [the former], in the following manner. A powerful work began among them in the fall of 1771, and elder Hicks baptized forty persons, and then was taken sick in the winter, and Mr. Winchester came and baptized twenty more; and such power appeared to attend his ministry, that many were taken in with the opinion, that baptism by immersion ought not to be held as a term of communion in the church. A council was called upon it, in September, 1772, and they who were not convinced by them, formed another church, and ordained Mr. Jacob Hicks as their pastor, January 20, 1773. He is the eldest son of their old pastor, and was born January 1, 1740. This division caused much unhappiness for many years; but both societies have usually held their worship together, in late times, and they now [1795] meet in the same house that was first built for Mr. Comer's church."

Ephraim Hix

M, b. 1687, d. October 21, 1765

Parents

Family: Sarah Kingsley (b. October 9, 1690, d. October 1727)

  • John Hix (b. May 12, 1712, d. March 17, 1799)

Biography

  • Birth: Ephraim Hix was born in 1687 in Swansea, Bristol Co, Massachusetts.
  • Marriage: He and Sarah Kingsley were married on February 10, 1708.
  • Death: Ephraim Hix died on October 21, 1765, at age ~78, in Richmond, Cheshire Co, New Hampshire.
  • Note: From Hodge's book: Ephraim lived at Swansea & Rehoboth, Mass and probably eventually moved to Richmond, NH. He wore out 4 wives: Sarah Kingsley, Joanna Luther, Eunice Ludden, and Ann Pearce. Ephraim married 1st, Feb 10, 1708/9 at Swansea, Sarah Kingsley, daughter of John and Sarah (Sabin) Kingsley. She died October 1727 at Rehoboth. They had at least 5 children, four recorded in the Rehoboth Vital Records and one proven by deed transfer. He married 2nd, Aug 28, 1728 at Swansea, Joanna Luther, daughter of Theophilus and Lydia (Kinnicutt) Luther. She died sometime after Mar 1731/2 when she signed a deed with Ephraim (BCM Deed 21:121) deeding her inherited property to her brother Daniel. There are no known or probable children of this marriage. Her death date is unknown. The record of his third marriage has not been found, but Eunice _____ died Feb 25, 1748/9 at Rehoboth as the wife of "Deacon Ephraim Hix". Mr. Gayle Hix feels she was Eunice Ludden, daughter of Benjamin and Eunice (Holbrook) Ludden, b Nov 9, 1689 at Weymouth, MA. There appear to have been several children of this marriage, although none were recorded in the Rehoboth VR. His 4th wife, was Ann Pierce (Int Apr 22, 1749 at Rehoboth). Hodge (p 17) feels she was probably a widow, but offers no clue to her identity. Mr. Gayle Hix feels she was the daughter of Richard Pearce and Susannah Lawton, b. Sept 21, 1725 in Bristol. RI. However the Pearce Genealogy claims that Ann to have married Col. Nathaniel Carey of Bristol. There appear to have been several children of this marriage also. The probable identification of the various children of Ephraim by his 3rd wife, Eunice Ludden, and 4th wife, Ann Pearce and their probable birth dates as given in this file are made by Mr. Gayle Hix based on his deeds research in New Hampshire and elsewhere, and various later records of these descendants, etc. The bulk of the "NH Hicks" in Richmond, NH seem to be his children by these later marriages.

He lived at Swansea until the spring of 1710 and then moved to Rehoboth, MA. No trace or indentification, even a first name, has been found for the first wife of Ephraim and mother of his children. He married 2nd Hannah Wells (Intentions - Sept 20, 1712 at Rehoboth.) She was probably a widow and possibly the mother of Mary Wells (m . his probable son James) & John Wells who bought land from him in 1729. Ephraim died probably between 8/30/1737 (when he acknowledged a deed) and 6/10/1746 when his son Ephraim had dropped the Jr from his name.

He was on a list of those who took the oath of fidelity as Scituate 1633-1668. "Hanmer's Hook" was the name of his lot, now (1831) part of Hanover, MA. John Hanmer, Sr. and Jr. are both on a list of "allowed and approved inhabitants" to whom portions of the common land of Scituate were assigned in 1673. (Deane). On Aug. 12, 1648 John Hanmore of Scituate deeded part of hisScituate land to Joseph Tilden; in the deed John's wife Ann Hanmore"resigns up all her dower rights".

Thomas Hicks

M, b. 1598, d. January 19, 1653

Parents

Family: Margaret West (b. 1600, d. July 5, 1666)

Biography

  • Birth: Thomas Hicks was born in 1598 in England.
  • Marriage: He and Margaret West were married in 1625.
  • Death: Thomas Hicks died on January 19, 1653, at age ~55, in Scituate, Plymouth Co, Massachusetts.
  • Note: The material below is copied directly from Hodge, Harriet Woodbury, "Hicks(Hix) Familes of Rehoboth & Swansea, Massachusetts, 1640-1850", privately published 1976 - LDS Film #1036844 - pp. 9-10. This excellent work, based on original research into land deeds, probate records, and, of course, vital records, and carefully documented has been a major source for this family file. (Note also pp.5-7 citing the absence of any proof of the oft-reported English ancestry of Thomas, or any relationship to Robert Hicks or John Hicks - other well-known Hicks American progenitors!) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- "Thomas Hicks, b perhaps 1590-1600, d. between Jan 10 and June 9, 1653 at Scituate, Plymouth colony. He may have been a brother or nephew of Robert Hicks of Plymouth, but no proof of relationship has been found. Neither has any proof been found that Thomas came on the ship "Anne" in 1623 with Robert Hicks' wife and family, for the members of Robert's household at Plymouth have been identified as his children and there is no mention there at an early date of Thomas Hicks' name. Thomas was living at Scituate by 1640, where he took the oath of fidelity in 1644. His house lot was northeast of "Hickes' Swamp", a mile south of the harbor near Brushy Hill. There was also a "Hickeses hole" near the Great Swamp at Scituate. He purchased a farm of 108 acres near the mouth of the North River in 1644 from John Whitcomb. The wife of Thomas Hicks was Margaret ____, who was probably the mother of all the children. Although she has been called "West" or "Atwood", no proof of either surname appears. Margaret was also probably born between 1590-1600, the birth of her youngest child, Samuel, estimated at 1632-40. On June 9 1653 "Widow Hicks, wife of the late deceased Thomeas Hicks of Scituate, by reason of age and weakness cannot appear in Court to make oath to the inventory of his estate and for like reason, alsoe, the witnesses to the will of Thomas Hicks cannot appear in court to make oath thereunto, the Court ordered Mr. Timothy Hatherley and Mr. Thomas Robinson to take their oathes at home and present them to the Court." It seems likely that Margaret Hicks was more weak than aged in 1653, for on July 5, 1666 Widdow Hicke is on a tax list of Scituate: for the first rate of L 0/2/5 and for the second rate L 0/3/3, " both rates for the Indian purchase the west end of towne". It should be noted that this "Widdow Hicke" of Scituate 7/5/1666 was the widow of Thomas Hicks, not Robert, whose widow died before Mar 6, 1665/6. The will of Thomas Hicks was written January 10, 1652/3 and reported to the court at Plymouth June 9, 1653 (putting his death date some time between the two), but the oath of "Margratt Hicks" to the inventory and the oaths of the witnesses Thomas Ensings and John Hewes were not taken until October 3, 1653. The will follows: "The last will of Thomas hicks of Scittuate in the pattent of New Plymouth In America; I being weake in body but Reasonalbe pfct in memory and understanding I blesse the Lord. I Will and bequeath unto my sonne Zachariah five shillings to bee paid by my wife Margrett hicks whome I make my whole exequitirx within a twelvemonth after my Decease; I will and bequesth unto my wife Margrett and my two sonns Daniell and Samuell all my lands with Dwelling house and outhouses and gardens and all therto belonging and my house lott which is by estemation thirteen acres; as alsoe my hundred acres of upland with the Marsh thertobeonging which I bought of John Whetcome the elder of Scituate planter as be a Deed from him appears with the markes and bounds thereof; I give it my two sonnes Daniell and Samuell upon this proviso that they bee Obedient unto Theire mother and carrys themselves as they ought soe as they may live comfortably together but if the one or both live otherwise then they ought and undewtyfully and unquietly with theire Mother that they cannot confortably live together then heee that soe carryeth himselfe shall Disinherit himselfe of his pts of this land During my wives life; and after her Death all this land abovewritten shalbee equally Devided between my sonnes Daniell and Samuell; My will is if my wife should chang her condition and Marry than shee shall have butt one third of my land above written; It I give unto my wife all my moveables and my two young Cattle; In Witness of the truth of this that it is my will I have sett my Marke." The will was signed by "The Marke of Thomas hicks", the witnesses Thomas Ensigns and "the mark of John hewes". There is a hint in the will that the son Zachariah had perhaps not been obedient to his parents and had betaken himself to other parts by 1653, thus accounting for his small legacy. The son, Samuel, was not living at Scituate in 1673 when only Daniel's name appeats on a list of landowners there."
