Francis HICKS (c1650-?)

and Mary STANDEN (?-?)

 

Francis Hicks and Mary Standen may have been my 8x Great Grandparents.  They married on 9 June 1673 in Benenden, Kent, and then settled in Salehurst, Sussex.

Francis Hicks's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been baptised on 2 February 1651 in Eastbourne, Sussex, the son of Francis Hicks?  A Francis Hicks, bachelor of Salehurst, married Mary Gray, spinster of Bodiam, by licence on 15 April 1641 in Bodiam, Sussex.  And then a Francis Hicks was buried at St. Mary's in Eastbourne on 27 February 1660 and a Mary Hickes was buried there on 4 May 1664.  Francis Hicks of Salehurst left a will in 1675.

Mary Standen's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

 

Francis Hicks and Mary Standen had 6 known children and maybe more:

  1. Elizabeth Hixe was baptised on 9 October 1673 in Salehurst.  The baptism register records her mother's name as Joan.

  2. John Hixe was baptised on 4 May 1675 in Salehurst.

  3. Hanna Hixe, my possible 7x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 14 February 1678/9 in Salehurst.  She may have married Thomas Butler in 1703.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Elizabeth Hixe was baptised on 25 February 1680/1 in Salehurst.

  5. Elizabeth Hixe was baptised on 5 July 1683 in Salehurst.

  6. Sarah Hixe was baptised on 29 October 1685 in Salehurst.  She may have married Thomas Johnson on 20 July 1703 in Salehurst.  He was then of Hawkhurst.

  7. Francis Hicks may have been part of this family.  He left a will proved on 15 October 1755, at which time he was described as a draper of Salehurst.  He may have married Elizabeth Chittenden on 7 July 1715 in Mountfield, Sussex.  He was then said to have been of Salehurst and she of Hawkhurst.

 

John Hicks of Salehurst left a will in 1692.

Jane Hicks of Salehurst left a will in 1712.

Hannah Hicks of Salehurst left a will in 1742.
