What was the maiden name of Margaret, wife of Thomas Hicks?

+2 votes

Pope lists these sources for West as her maiden name and Zachariah as her father’s name.  We need to check each one and see what they say.  Can you help ? Thanks. 

HICKS, Thomas (-1653) & Margaret [WEST], dau Zachariah of London; by 1625?; Scituate/Marblehead {East Hampton LI 301; Scituate Hist. 284; Hicks 3; Chute xc; Blood Anc. 67; Foster 76; Winchester (1912) 63; Preston Rec. (ms); MD 11:160; Reg. 5:260, 88:307}

Scituate History 284. talks about Margaret but no mention of maiden name. https://archive.org/stream/historyscituate01deangoog#page/n292/mode/2up

Will look at MD 11:160
Mayflower Descendant: 11:160 is the will of Thomas Hicke who makes his wife Margaret executrix. He has a son Zachariah Hicke. No one named West was mentioned.

Re: West (really common name). A West family of Plymouth and vicinity married into the family of Mayflower Passenger George Soule. The first several generations of the West family are in the MFIP but there is no Zachariah in the index.
Chute xc - https://archive.org/stream/agenealogyandhi00chutgoog#page/n356/mode/2up/search/Hicks I can't find anything on that page. but on page c https://archive.org/stream/agenealogyandhi00chutgoog#page/n366/mode/2up/search/Hicks - talks about Thomas. Maiden name of Margaret not mentioned. This also has the Robert and Thomas as sons of James, from your other question
Update: the genealogy Anne links to immediately above is one of MANY late 19th/early 20th century genealogies that repeats a "legend" started about 1795-1803 about a "Sir Ellis Hicks" knighted in 1356.

Sir Ellis aka Elias Hickes was born in 1600, son of William Hickes, scrivener; he fought for CHARLES in the 1620s for which is was awarded a knight barrenet (sp?) in 1635. He died, without marriage or issue, in 1679.
