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.
