Jane Scott was born on August 17, 1843[1] in Point de Bute, New Brunswick.[2] She was the daughter of Israel Scott and Jemima Fillmore. On the 1851 census,[3] she is listed as Gemima.[4] All other sources give her name simply as "Jane". It is uncertain whether her name was Jemima, like her mother, with Jane as a nickname, or whether one of the names is a first name and the other a middle name.

Jane appears to have been enumerated twice on the 1861 census. She is listed with her parents and siblings in Westmorland Parish (probably Point de Bute)[5] She is also listed with her husband and 4-month-old daughter in Sackville District (probably Midgic).[6] While these could be two different people, Jane's death certificate confirms that her parents are Israel Scott and Jemima Fillmore, so it is more likely that she was double-counted.

Jane married John Manning Hicks in 1859.[7] They had 12 children, of whom 6 survived childhood. Jane's youngest sister, Annie, was married to John Manning's brother, Albion.

In 1871, there was a James Scott, age 15, living with John & Jane. Was this was Jane's brother, James? If so, then his age is wrong on the census, as Jane's brother James was born about 1850, so he would have been 21 at the time of the census.

Jane died on May 16, 1925[8] and was buried in Midgic Cemetery.[9]
