Savage and Pope both give his death date as 24 Mar, apprently based on the abstract of the inventory published in 1850. On the original, the month of death is in the upper right corner of the page, and is worn, so that only "Ma" can now be read on microfilm. Bowman saw this as May, and his reading is followed. Children Margaret, Elizabeth and Daniel, given in other sources, are not in the Great Migration; Thomas, John, Sarah, Richard and Mary are added.Plymouth Colony Genealogical Helper, #3, 1975-Robert S. Wakefield's "The children of Robert Hicks" in TAG for Jan 1975, deals with errors in the treatment of the family by Charles Edward Banks; his wife Margaret died shortly before invt. was takenof her estate on 5 Mar 1665/6.

Daniel Hicks, born Abt. 1621 in Southwark, Surrey, England; married Elizabeth Hanmore+++ ++ROBERT, a leather dresser of London, arrived in Plymouth, Mass., Nov. 11, 1621, in the ship Fortune. He came alone to America, his family following after two years.Robert Hicks was married twice. His first wife, Elizabeth Morgan died in England. His two sons by her were left in England when he came to America. One of them, Thomas, succeeded to his father's business in London. The other son, John, joined his father in New England later.His second wife, Margaret Winslow, with her children, Samuel, Ephraim, Lydia and Phebe, came over in the ship Ann, which arrived at Plymouth in June, 1623; and the family with two of the first wife's children, Elizabeth and Thomas, settled in Duxbury, Mass., and the other two children by the first wife, John and Stephen, subsequently settled in Long Island.Hicks was secretly informing the Adventurers of London of dissensions that arose in the internal working of the little Plymouth Republic, and thus creating unfavorable impressions abroad.When he moved away in 1645 to become one of the founders of Eastham, he presented the town of Plymouth with a cow-calf, possibly as a balm to a troubled conscience, to atone for the anxiety he had caused the colony in earlier years.His will of 28 May 1645, mentions his grandchildren, John Bangs, and John Watson.Resource: http://www.gendex.com/users/hhadaway/harry/fam00384.htmGenealogical Guide to the Early Settlers of America, Henry Whittemore, 1967:Robert Hicks, Plymouth, came in the Fortuen, 1621, and his wife, Margaret, came in the Ann, 1623, with her children, who are presumed to have been two sons, Ephraim and Samuel, and two daughters, Lydia and Phebe. He was in 1618 a leatherdresser at London, or rather Bermondsey Street, Southwark.Plymouth Colony Its History & People 1620 - 1691 by Aubrey Stratton - 1986"The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633", Robert Charles Anderson, 1995, 3 vols.HICKS, ROBERT -He arrived in 1621 on the Fortune. Banks called him a fellmonger of Bermondsey and Southwark, County Surrey. Robert S. Wakefield, "The Children of Robert Hicks," TAG 51:57, shows that Hicks had at least nine children. See also R. G. Rider, "More on the Robert Hicks Ancestry: Clues to the Identity of his Spouse," TAG 54:31, which should be read with a bit of caution. His wife was Margaret Hicks, q.v. Some interesting background is given on Hicks in the deposition of Clement Briggs of Weymouth, fellmonger, taken at New Plymouth 29 August 1638. Briggs said that about twenty-two years earlier he was dwelling (and working for) Mr. Samuel Latham in Bermondsey Street, Southwark, London, and a Thomas Harlow was dwelling with (and working for) Mr. Robert Hicks. Harlow and Briggs often discussed how many pelts their masters pulled a week. Hicks pulled 300 a week and sometimes 600 or 700, and he sold his sheep's pelts for forty shillings a hundred to Mr. Arnold Auard, whereas Mr. Samuel Latham sold his to the same man for fifty shillings a hundred, even though Mr. Hicks's pelts were better ware (PCR 12-.35). In Plymouth, Hicks recorded with the court on 13 July 1639 a release whereby Thomas Heath of London, cooper, on 13 July 1619 had acquitted Robert Hicks, formerly a citizen and leatherseller of London, of all debts, including.EI80 pounds which Hicks had owed Heath (PCR 12-.43). Hicks died at Plymouth 24 May 1647, and in his will, dated 28 May 1645, inventory 5 July 1647, he named his wife Margaret, oldest son Samuel, son Ephraim, grandson John Bangs, John Watson, and a number of nonrelative Plymouth residents (MD 8:143).Source: Plymouth Colony Its History & People 1620 - 1691 by Aubrey Stratton - 1986Some show two wives for Robert Hicks: Elizabeth Morgan, and Margaret Winslow, but no marriage record has been found for Robert Hicks. His only known wife was Margaret, and there is little basis for her surname being Winslow. See TAG 54:31-34.
