WICKCLIFFE Surveyed 1658 W'ICKCLIFFE" is one of the most interesting properties in Kent and is now owned by James W. Stevens, a native of Kent. In 1658 a grant was issued to Joseph Wickes and Thomas Hynson jointly for 800 acres by the name of "Wickcliffe," described as "lying on the east side of the Eastern Bay called Eastern Neck." Thomas Hynson's heirs surrendered their rights in the property in later years for a consideration and it was from the direct heirs of Joseph Wickes that Mr. Stevens bought the estate, it having been in the Wickes family for about 240 years. From the very earliest records of the Isle of Kent down to the present day, with numerous representatives, the Wickeses have held a prominent place in the affairs of Maryland. It is generally supposed that Joseph Wickes was of Puritan stock, but no records are at hand to prove this. At the age of thirty-six, in 1656, he was appointed one of the Justices of the County of Kent. Twenty years after, 1676, he was of the "quorum," John Hynson and Cornelius Comegys sitting with him in court.
