Hickson Genealogy

Places called Hickson, Hixson or Hixon

Before most people could write, the name was written by scribes who wrote down what they heard, so spelling was unimportant. A man could be called Hickson and his son recorded as Hixon and his son could even be Hikson. Thomas Hickson (1650-1728) was once recorded as Thomas Hixan. I have seen at least 78 different spellings of this name.
