Birth: Mar. 28, 1725
Hempstead
Nassau County
New York, USA
Death: Jul., 1799
Granville County
North Carolina, USA

William Hicks was one of four sons of John Hicks and Ellinor Elison Hicks of Long Island NY. He and two of his brothers (Robert and Thomas) came and settled in Granville County NC on a land grant from the Earl of Granville on March 5th 1749, two tracts of land aggregating 502 acres, "Situated on the waters" of Tabbs Creek.." The first date on the marker is the date that he bought this property and not his date of birth

William married Mary Ann Meredith and they had 8 children. These were John (who died as an infant), William Hicks, Jr., Mary Hicks (married Micajah Greenfield Debruler), Priscilla Hicks (married Seamore Duncan), Martha Hicks (married John Tatum), Anne Hicks (married William Mathews), Susanna Hicks (married William Wilkins) and Abner Hicks.

After Mary Ann's death he married Mourning Taylor, the widow of John Hunt. They had no children.
