What do we know about James Hicks and Phoebe Allen?

+8 votes
Hi there, I'm tracing my family tree back from Roy William Hicks and Ada Alice Hicks(of Midgic, NB) and I keep getting confused around James Hicks(born 1550) & Phebe Hicks (born 1557, formerly Allyn aka Allen, Alyn, Allyne):are they actually half brother/sister, or is it just confusing because everyone is named after family members...  on James' profile it says "half brother to Phebe Allyn Hicks " and "married to Phebe Allyn Hicks" ... any clarification would be much appreciated!

Also, James' mother Mary Nancy (Everhard) Hicks was married to both Baptist & Ephraim   At first glance, this seems like Phebe and James could have been half brother and sister.. unless I'm missing something.. it's pretty confusing with families re-using family names so often.

 *I just looked over James' profile again, and it seems to say he had three sons all named "John Hicks" so it's safe to say that there are probably some errors on this page.  (Understandable, there's a lot of information to go through with such large families).  

It is pretty interesting though, (assuming the information on the website is correct) I was able to trace back my family line to 1160, and a Captain of the Kings Guard for King Edward the III.

Update: the existence, marriage, ancestry and descendancy of these two people appears to have been introduced in an unsourced 19th century "genealogy." To date, we have found no independent evidence that this couple (or their respective parents) even existed.

If anyone can find such evidence, we hope you will share it.  Thank you.
