    Notes 
    • From Josiah Paine’s “Early Settlers of Eastham”:
      “Samuel Hicks was among the first who went to Nausett after the settlement commenced. He came over with his mother, Margaret, in the Ann in 1623, to meet his father, Robert, who had previously come in the Fortune. His age at the time is not known. He was in Plymouth in 1643 and able to bear arms. He went to Nausett and was the constable in 1646. He was a representative to the Colony court in Jun, 1647, and also in 1649 with Mr. John Doane. He did not long remain in Eastham. He was a resident of Barnstable as late as 1662, and an inhabitant of Dartmouth in 1670, where the family was interested in somelanded estate.”

      From The Doane Family:
      “Samuel Hicks seems to have been a man of standing. He was in Plymouth in 1639, when he bought his father's house, out-houses and garden-plot, with two cows, and lands on the north and south sides of the town. He was admitted a freeman Mar. l, 1641-2 and contributed one-sixteenth part of the money to build a barque of forty or fifty tons, costing £200. He was among the first who went to Nauset, or Eastham, after the settlement commenced. He was constable there in 1646, and represented the town in the Colony Court in 1647, and again in 1649 with his father-in-law Deacon John Doane. He returned to Plymouth, where two of their children were born, and was a constable in that town in 1654. He was sometime an inhabitunt of Barnstable. Mr. Otis says, he was admitted an inhabitant there Oct. 8, 1662, but had then resided in the town several years.
      “In 1661, there was ‘a difference’ between Samuel Hicks and his mother, about the will of his father Robert and it was agreed that Samuel should pay his mother ten pounds, and leave ‘the winescot bedstead and the table in the hall to remain in the house as now it stands,’ the bouse to revert to Samuel at his mother's decease.
      “He removed to Dartmouth where his father had been interested in some landed estate. In 1666 an Indian named ‘Daniell’ was examined before the court for striking Samuel Hicks, of Acushna or Dartmouth ‘so that he languisheth and hath been in danger of death.’ The Indian confessed that he ‘struck or punched Hicks with an axe or the haft of it,’ but claimed that Hicks first struck him. After a hearing Daniell was fined four pounds and four shillings for bill of charges, and forty shillings for loss of Hicks time, and ten shillings to John Haward for going to Plymouth as a witness.
      “On June 5, 1667, Samuel Hicks was one of the selectmen and a Receiver of Excise for Dartmouth. He was in the list of freemen there in 1670, and a deputy to the Colony Court.” [2, 3]
