John Ward

My great grandfather, Frederick Lloyd married a Sarah Hickson at St. Peter's Church, Wolverhampton (then in Staffordshire) on 20th of May 1850. Sarah was 19 and lived in Dudley Street, Wolverhampton. Dudley Street is the main shopping street in the town, so she was probably employed as a 'servant' i.e. a live-in shop assistant. She was the daughter of John Hickson and Mary Challinger/Challenger of Tettenhall, a village adjoining Wolverhampton. Her parents were married at Wolverhampton St. Peter's, the date being 29/01/1826.
Interests: relatives of John Hickson prior to 1826 and any descendant's of John and Mary.

Forgotten tales by David Holford

I am interested in the Hickson family and forebears of Richard and Mary (née Carter) of Co Kerry, specifically their first and last sons (William Carter Hickson and John Christopher Hickson who both (along with their other siblings) ended up in Australia.

I would specially like any information on the family (parents and children) before they left Ireland, since my research question is "why did they leave?"

Reasearch for parents, year by year

It is important to submit your mailing address, e-mail address, and web page address (if any). Many people using the web do not have e-mail accounts, they may be using a friend's computer, so an e-mail address is no good to them.

It is also important to list someone's web page. A web page is available 24 hours a day. An e-mail address is only good when a person checks their e-mail. Don't forget that people go on holiday! Also you will want to know this information later because people have a habit of moving. They move everything from their web page, to changing their e-mail address, to changing their street address. Hopefully they won't change all three at once, people need to be able to find them.

A link from you back to your oldest ancestor is also useful, for example:

David L. Hickson
.Paul Wayne Hickson b. living
..Frank Preston Hickson b. living
...John Milton Hickson b. date and place
....Alfred Roger Milton Hickson b. date and place
.....Joseph Ellison Hickson b. date and place
......John Antrim Hickson b. date and place
.......James Hickson b. date and place
........Henry Hicksone came to America 1650
