Thomas Hicks was born probably at Weymouth, Mass., in 1640, and
died at Little Neck, L.I., in 1740, just over 100 years of age, son of
John and his first wife Horod (Long) Hicks, see subject 532.
Thomas Hicks was brought to Long Island about 1642, shortly
after his father came. In 1666 Thomas bought from Governor Nicholls,
a patent of 4000 acres of land in the vicinity of Little Neck, built a
good house and lived as Lord of the Manor for many years. In 1691 he
was Judge of the Court of Queens County.
According to Savage, Bunker and Stevenson, Thomas Hicks married,
1st, after 1658, in Long Island, as her second husband, Mary (Butler)
Washburn, daughter of Richard Butler of Stratford, Conn., who had
married, 1st, John Washburn, who died August 30/1658. However, the
Jones Genealogy says that the Mary Washburn who married Thomas Hicks,
was the daughter of John and Sarah (---) Washburn, uncle of the John
Washburn who married Mary Butler. The John Washburn who married Sarah
---, was a man who lived in Flushing, and whose will of February23/1687
was made after he returned to England and died in the parish of Saint
Beedolph, near London, in which he mentioned his daughters Sarah and
Mary. It seems to we that the Jones genealogy is the more correct, for
it is more likely that Thomas Hicks' wife Mary Washburn, came from
Flushing, rather than from Stratford, Conn. The St Nicholas Society
records say Thomas Hicks' wife was Mary Cornell Washburn. I don't know
which is correct. They had two children, see below.
Thomas Hicks married, 2nd, on July 6/1676-7, Wary Doughty, born
about 1658, died 1713, daughter of Elias and Sarah (---) Doughty of
Flushing, L.I., and grand daughter of the Reverend Francis Doughty, see
subject 534, and 1068. The Cornell Genealogy says Mary Doughty was the
daughter of Thomas Doughty - this must be wrong.
Thomas Hicks' will is given in the New York Historical Society's
Abstracts of wills, vol 3, p 352, and was dated May 15/1727, proved
January 28/1741-2. He left to his grandson Thomas Hicks, the eldest son
and heir of his son Thomas Hicks, the sum of five shillings: he left to
his son Isaac, his Great History Book, called Speed's Chronicle of
England: he left to his son Benjamin, his silver tankard: he left to
his son Stephen, all his houses, lands and meadows in the bounds of
Flushing, except his right on the great plain of Hempstead: also a bed
and furniture, and the remainder of his books, two hatchetts, and his
wearing apparel. He left to his six sons John, Joseph, Isaac, Benjamin
William and Stephen, all his right on the great plains of Hempstead.
To his daughter Phebe Simmons, œ100: (this same should have read
Seaman). To his daughter Charity, œ250: to daughter Mary Bushlar œ100:
(this name should have read Rushmore). He left to his grand daughter

daughter of his son William, his silver tumbler. All the rest of his
property to his four daughters Phebe, Elizabeth, Charity and Mary, and
to his grand daughter Sarah Everitt. His Indian and negro slaves and
his live stock, were to remain for his son Stephen. His sons Benjamin
and Stephen were to be serviceable to his daughter Charity in her
affairs. His son Stephen was his executor.
His will did not mention a wife, so she must have predeceased
him, nor does it mention his sons by his first wife. His children below
are taken from his will, which lumped the sons first and the daughters
after: hence the order below may not be correct.
Adam and Anne Mott By Thomas Clapp Cornell
Thomas Hicks, only son of above John Hicks, was born 1640,
probably in Weymouth, Mass., but came to Long Island after his
father, and there married, Mary Washburn, by whom he had Thomas
and JACOB. His first wife died young, and in 1677, July 6, Thomas
Hicks married, second, Mary Doughty, by whom he had ten children,
Isaac, William, Stephen, John, Charles, Benjamin, Phcbe, Charity, Mary
and Elizabeth. In 1666 Thomas Hicks obtained of Governor Nicolls a
patent for about four thousand acres of land in the vicinity of Little
Neck, where he built a good house and lived as the Lord of his Manor,
for many years. Thomas Hicks lived out his hundred years, and died in
1740, and the newspapers of the times said that he left behind him more
than three hundred descendants. -------------------- said to be captain of Militia 1686-1692 1st judge in Queens, NY - on Long Island where Hicksville was founded?? (unconfirmed)
Had 2 wives, 4 sons and 6 daughters
