If there is anyone who has Hicks in their family tree and has not got in touch with me and want to be included in the Hicks Family Genealogy please do so in the next day or so. It is almost ready to go to the printers to be out for mid June. All Hicks from John Hicks/ Elizabeth Russell Hicks who came here in 1760 to Hants Co. and then to Annapolis County and has since spread out to many areas of N. S. including Digby County and related families.

I do have Hicks in my family staring with Amelia Hicks who married David Welch around 1815 in Digby or Annapolis counties. I have her line back to Sir Ellis Hicks of England around 1315. The only problem is some of this line is yet to be proven. I do have John Hicks born 1715 in USA and Eliz Russel born in 1719 USA. So please add me to your list.

Good to hear from you. I would be very interested in getting your line from Ameila/David on if you would like to be included in the book.I have information on this line already so if you would email me at l.marshall @ns.sympatico.ca with an outline of where you fit in, I can then tell youhow far I have researched this line and what I need to fit you in. I have included as many of the Westport Hicks and related families as I have been able to find.

Do you have any information on a ZEPHANIAH HICKS probably born c. 1760's ? Family legend says that he came south from Nova Scotia to Maine after a dispute with family members over his father's estate.
The earliest record of him I have found is his marriage in late 1789 to a Sarah Stinchfield (marriage was recorded in Town of Winthrop, Lincoln Cty., Maine)

Sorry but the earlest N. S. Hicks I have is John Hicks and wife Elizabeth Russell -------"" John Hicks, made the arrangements with the government of Nova Scotia. The settlers from Rhode Island were to come in sailing vessels, the names of two of which being the Sally under the command of Jonathan Lovett 24 and the Lydia under the command of Samuel Toby. In total there were four sailing vessels which carried 73 families to their new homes to the southwest and bordering on the Pisiquid River, another area that had been well populated by the Acadians prior to 1755.
