About Samuel Hicks, Sr.

From "The Doane Family" by AA Doane vol. 1 pp. 19

He seems to have been a man of standing. He was in Plymouth in 1639, when he bought his father's house, out-houses and garden-plot, with two cows, and lands on the north and south sides of the town. He was asmitted a freeman Mar. 1, 1641-2 and contributed one-sixteenth part of the money to build a barque of forty or fifty tons, costing 200 pounds.

He was among the first who went to Nauset, or Eastham, after the settlement commenced. He was constable there in 1646, and represented the town in the Colony Court in 1647, and again in 1649 with his father-in-law Deacon John Doane.

He returned to Plymouth, where 2 of their children were born, and was a constable in that town in 1654.

He was sometime an inhabitant of Barnstable. Mr. Otis says, he was admitted an inhabitant there Oct. 3, 1662, but had then resided in the town several years.

In 1661, there was "a difference" between Samuel Hicks and his mother, about the will of his father and it was agreed that Samuel whould pay his mother ten pounds, and leave "the winescot bedstead and the table in the hall to remain in the house as now it stands," the house to revert to Samuel at his mother's decease.

He removed to Dartmouth where his father had been interested in some landed estate. In 1666 and Indian named "Daniell" was examined before the court for striking Sanuel Hicks of Acushna or Dartmouth "so that he languished and hath been in danger of death." The Indian confessed that he "struck or punched Hicks with an axe or the haft of it," but claimed that Hicks first struck him. After a hearing Daniell was fined four pounds and four shillings for bill of charges, and forty shillings for los of Hicks time, and ten shillings to John Haward for going to Plymouth as a witness.

Samuel was baptized at St. Mary Magdalen, Bermondsey parish, London. He came to America with his mother and siblings in 1623 aboard the Anne, with his father coming across the Atlantic earlier in the Fortune (1621).

After their marriage in Plymouth, the family moved to Eastham, back to Plymouth, then to Barnstable in 1662 and to Dartmouth by 1666 (a founder of that town).

Samuel was likely a Quaker.

Passengers of the Anne and Little James 1623

  • Also see: The Anne and the Little James 1623
  • In summer of 1623 about 90 passengers embarked in two small ships sailing from London to Plymouth Colony for the purpose of providing settlers and other colony support. These were the 140 ton supply ship Anne and the smaller, new 44 ton pinnace Little James which had been outfitted for military service. They were financed by Thomas Weston’s investment group, the Merchant Adventurers, also those who financed the Mayflower in 1620 and Fortune in 1621. After a three-month voyage, the Anne arrived in Plymouth, per Bradford, on July 10, 1623 and the Little James a week or ten days later. After this voyage the Anne was to return to its regular cargo shipping work and the Little James was to remain in the colony for fishing, cargo and military service. The Anne’s Master was William Peirce and the Little James had two young men in charge – Master John Bridges, master mariner, and a novice Captain, Emmanuel Altham, a Merchant Adventurer.[1][2][3][4]

  • Of the 90-odd passengers, there were about 60 men, women and children total in both ships, many being former English Separatist residents of Leiden, Holland, and with about 30 others being part of an independent emigrant group led by John Oldham. This later group had been promised a separate living situation in Plymouth apart from the main settlement.[5]
  • There are no separate passenger lists for each ship, as those that sailed in these ships were grouped together in records under the Anne when the official land division was made 1623 with assignment of acreage lots by name. But author Charles Banks did identify at least four men, three with families, who were passengers in Little James. These totaled about 14 persons. Banks also states that it is possible Little James had more passengers, but due to size it could not accommodate many. Additionally, eight wives accompanied their husbands on these two ships, along with twelve children brought over by their parents.[6]

  • 5. Edward Bangs – Born c.1591 - 86 in 1677. Per Banks he was of Panfield, Essex, son of John and Jane (Chavis) Bangs. Shipwright by occupation. The 1623 land division lists 4 shares for him under “Bangs.” From that it is thought that he may have had a family of wife and two children with him on the Anne that are mysteriously missing by the 1627 cattle division as he only drew one share then. It can only be surmised that something happened to them between 1623 and 1627 as he (re)married after 1627. Member of the 1626 Purchaser investment group as “Edward Banges.” He was with those chosen to lay out twenty-acre lots in the 1627 division. After 1627 married Lydia Hicks, daughter of Robert and Margaret Hicks, having been fellow passengers with him on the Anne in 1623. Died 1677. Three members of his family that may have been with him as counted in the 1623 land division:
  • 6. (Mrs) ___ Bangs – possibly died before 1627.
  • 7. (child) Bangs
  • 8. (child) Bangs[11][12]
  • 9. Robert Bartlett – Cooper (barrel maker .... etc.
  • 28. Lydia Hicks – Daughter of Robert and Margaret Hicks – she arrived with her mother Margaret on the Anne. After 1627 she married Edward Bangs, a fellow Anne passenger.[36][37]

In 1623 land division had 4 shares as “Robart Hickes his wife & children.” He was a member of the 1626 Purchaser investment group as “Robte Hicks.” In 1627 division family had 6 shares.
