Biography

Robert is listed in the Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700 on NEGHS as having been married twice. The first marriage was to Elizabeth Morgan, the second is shown to Margaret Winslow. Note, however, that Torrey includes question marks by both their names. See Robert Hicks for discussion of the two wives theory.

Winslow-1389 and Unknown-202363 appear to represent the same person because: Same woman. Robert Hicks had only one wife, Margaret. Her maiden name is not known. She was not a Winslow so merge into Unknown. Thank you.

Sorry; I accidentally deleted the merge request explanation; to reiterate: there is no proof of the maiden name of Margaret, wife of Robert Hicks-27; read his and her profile (Unknown-202363) for details. Therefore Winslow-1332 should be merged into Unknown-202363.

Jacqueline, please read the "Disputed Origins" section; it explains why she is marked as "Unknown" and not recognized as daughter of Edward Winslow.

In her bio you mention she was the daughter of "Winslow". Margaret was my 10th great grandmother she was the daughter of Edward Winslow and Eleanor Pelham. Will you please add Margarets maiden name of Windlow and remove the "unknown" ? Thank you.

Unfortunately, the US & Int'l Marriage records compilation is wholly unreliable. There's no way to confirm its accuracy. We need to dig deeper than that.
