Despite claims made on many unsourced online family trees, she was the only known wife of Robert Hicks, and her maiden name and origins remain unknown. She was not Margaret Winslow.
Already married, Margaret (_______) Hicks arrived at Plymouth in 1623 on the Anne with her children Samuel and Lydia to join her husband Robert who had sailed two years prior. (Also on the same ship with her was Edward Bangs who would marry her daughter Lydia.)

Sir Robert Hicks I, the emigrant, was born about 1575 and married Margaret Morgan in England in 1596.
- There is no proof that Robert Hicks had any other spouse besides Margaret Unknown. We have requested that this Margaret Morgan be merged away into Margaret Unknown, using Margaret Unknown's vitals.
He had four children: Elizabeth, Thomas, John II, and Stephen.
Margaret Morgan died about 1607.
In 1610, Sir Robert I married in London a second time, Margaret Winslow, by whome he had four more children: Samuel, Ephain, Lydia, and Phebe.
- NOTE: There is no evidence to support that he was married to Margaret Winslow.
