The family trace of the Hickson's in Ireland is from the work of William Henry Hickson of Lynchburg, Virginia. He writes, ... "[The] fourth son, [my Great Grandfather] Edward, was born in 1771 and died in 1845. He was captain of the Laun Rangers in 1794 and fought under Wellington in the wars against Napoleon, in the Spanish peninsular and possibly other places. He lived at Milltown, about 14 miles from Tralee, and later in life moved to that place. "
His eldest son was Edward Spring Hickson (1800-1866) [who] was my Grandfather. My father [was] born at Quebec Apr. 23, 1846, died at Danville, Virginia 1916.
Edward Hickson, of Milltown and Tralee, born 1771, died 1845, married Rose, daughter of Edward Spring of Castlemaine. Through this marriage we are also descended from the Rev. Christopher Hickson. Edward Hickson and Rose Spring Hickson had five sons and two daughters.
The sons opened a timberyard in Tralee, but the three oldest sons soon left the timberyard to the two youngest sons and emigrated to Canada, probably about 1830. Richard, the second son, died at Quebec unmarried. John, the third son, went to New York city, married and had issue. William, the fourth son, apparently kept the lumberyard in Tralee, and died there in 1893. Robert, the fifth son went to Belfast and went into the shipping and ship-building business, which he later sold to Harland & Woolf, and moved to Birkenhead, England. There he went into the shipping business, trading with Australia and the East Indies. He died about 1870.

Arthur Owen Hickson after 1900StrayHe wrote in 1967: "I know very little about my ancestors but this may be interesting to you. Shortly after World War I an Australian Hickson called on my mother in Saint John, NB. He was a retired business man on a world tour and calling on Hicksons wherever he went. He said that the Hicksons were yeoman farmers in England who moved to Northern Ireland after that area was'pacified' by Cromwell. Early in the 19th century [how early I have forgotten], four Hickson brothers from Northern Ireland landed in New York; one remained in New York, two moved north to Canada, and the fourth returned to Ireland and then emigrated to Australia." Could he be related to Thomas Hickson (1771-1857) of New Brunswick?
