There were three Richard Hickson/Hixon living in Frodsham who were born between 1566 & 1600, but no more until 1627. From the Wills of the only 2 whose Wills have been found we have:

  1. died 1613 in Frodsham, Husbandman;
  2. died 1627 in Frodsham, Shoemaker (estate less then 40 pounds).

Which was the Shoemaker, and which the Husbandman?

The possibilities:

The dates of birth above are only guesses (21 years before marriage). Were there, in fact, only two Richards, one of them who married twice? Unfortunately no information concerning the deaths of the wives has been found.

... that both were called Richard the younger, so presumably both had a father called Richard as well, possibly still living, however sometimes "the younger" can refer to a nephew.
