1/1. Thomas Hicks. The Stevenson Genealogy gives his birth as 1667:

 he died between April and October 1712.  Bunker wrongly says he
 married Deborah Valentine, born 1657, daughter of Richard Valentine,
 He married Deborah Whitehead, born 1675, whose will dated April
 14/1712, proved July 24/1712, confirms that she was the wife of
 Thomas Hicks: she was the daughter of Daniel and Abigail, (Stevenson)
 Denton Whitehead.  Abigail was born in 1640, and was the daughter of
 Edward and Anne Stevenson: she had married, 1st, about 1660, Daniel
 Fenton, born in Yorkshire, England, about 1628, died 1703, son of the
 Reverend Richard Denton, to whom she bore two children. They were
 divorced in 1672, and Abigail married, 2nd, in that year, Daniel
 Whitehead and bore him seven children, Deborah's will mentions
 the same children as in her husband's will. Thomas Hicks made his
 younger brother Jacob, his executor. Thomas left to his wife Deborah,
 the use of his homestead, to wit, that part which was James
 Clements', together with 10 acres of woodland at the north west
 corner of his 100 acres, and all the housing and orchards during her
 widowhood. Also the use of the meadow he bought of Richard Chew, with
 all the 100 acres he bought of John Hinchman, except the ten acres at
 the north east corner which he left to his son Augustine: also the
 meadow that was formerly James Clements after his wife`s decease.  He
 left his son Augustine all his homestead that was James Clements', as
 all the meadow that was Francis Doughty's, with all the haying and
 orchards. He left his son Whitehead all the 10 acre lots, bought and
 purchased by his father in law Daniel Whitehead, deceased, situate
 and lying upon the south side of the Hills, to him and his heirs and
 assigns. And his son Thomas was to pay his brother Whitehead œ25 when
 he was of age: and his son Augustine was to pay him œ10.  And his son
 Thomas was to pay his brother Stevenson œ100 when of age. He left to
 his six daughters Abigail, Deborah, Mary, Elizabeth, Hannah and
 Martha, two thirds of moveables. His wife Deborah's will left œ15 in
 money to Benjamin and his wife Elizabeth Field with her youngest son
 Stevenson to bring him up. She left the rest of her estate to her
 seven children. She bequeathed her daughter Martha to her loving
 friend Martha Thorne, and her daughter Hannah to her dear cousins
 Robert and Phebe Field, desiring them to bring up her dear children
 in the way of truth and the fear of God. She appointed her loving
 friends John Rodman, Robert Field, Francis Doughty, and Samuel Bowne
 as executors.
