Despite claims made on many unsourced online family trees (and Torrey, which uses question marks), she was the only known wife of Robert Hicks, and her maiden name and origins remain unknown. She was not Margaret Winslow. See Robert's profile for more details.
Already married, Margaret (_______) Hicks arrived at Plymouth in 1623 on the Anne with her children Samuel and Lydia to join her husband Robert who had sailed two years prior. (Also on the same ship with her was Edward Bangs who would marry her daughter Lydia.)
Dated 8 July 1665; proved 6 Mar 1665/6, "Margarett Hickes widow of the town of Plymouth" bequeathed to "my son Samuell Hickes" L5; to "my daughter-in-law Lydia Hickes" 30s; to "my son Samuell's children" 10s each "there being seven of them"; said legacies to be paid by "son Samuell Hickes" from his debt "he having already received a large portion of that which God hath given me ot only in lands but also in goods and chattels which was not only my husband's and son Ephraim's estate formerly but also given to me by will at y son Ephraim's death"; to "my grandchild John Banges" 40s; residue to "the children of my son-in-law Gorg Watson and my loving daughter that is deceased Phebe Watson," also said estate to be "at the dispose of my son-in-law Gorg Watson"; "my son-in-law Gorg Watson and my friend Captain Southworth" overseers [PCPR 2:2:32, abstracted in MD 16:157-58].
