Attached is a family tree journal of the Hickson family in Ireland and New Zealand copied from the original written by Cora Longton (nee Hickson) my great grandmother
of The Gove, Ballintaggart and Redcliffe, Co Kerry,
Originally the Hicksons came over to Ireland from Cambridge shire in one of the settlements of Queens Elizabeth reign. They accompanied one Brown who was appointed Undertaker (one of those who undertakes to manager the House Of Commons for the King in the "Addled Parliament of 1614) for Munster. The former were Governors of certain portions and were now represented by Lord Kenmore. The furthermost back record I can present look into is "Burkes Irish Landed Gentry"
Robert Hickson of the Grove, Dingle was a High Sherriff in 1749 and also Deputy Governor. He had five sons and two daughters 1/ John (heir), 2/ Sam Murray, 3/ Robert (Rev) married a Hewson My grandfather, 4/ James, 5/ George 6/ Mary married Peter Hussey, 7/ Anne married Sir William Cox of Cool cliff.
John Hickson married Barbara, daughter of John Mahoney of Dronmore castle, Co Kerry, who died aged 104 about 1890, leaving a large family of three sons and five daughters. The eldest John only left one son, Robert Albert now living in England having sold all his Irish Estates. I believe he still retains Ballintaggart.
The Rev Robert Hickson was my grandfather. He had one son and three daughters, 1/ William Murray, 2/ Anne, 3/ Sarah, 4/ Julia married Peter Hussey who died some years once. His two sons and one daughter are also dead.
As you can see William Murray was my father and your grandfather. He left seven sons and one daughter - 1/ Robert, 2/ Walter, 3/ William 4/ James, 5/ Fitzgerald 6/ Albert, 7/ John, 8/Gertrude who married Dr G Martin of the Indian Civil service. The family connections are most numerous , most Kerry families being allied to us through matrimony.
I never cultivated any of these, principally as I never lived in Kerry, and more, so as when I did meet any of them I got the cold shoulder, having joined the RI Constabulary, and when I got the position of R M, I gave them the same. When the family wish to be particularly "swanky" they mentions as cousins the "knights of Kerry An Glynn", the later I knew very well and a very good sort who unfortunately got a "stroke" two years since. He was married to Lord Dun ravens eldest daughter. She is dead leaving only one son.
The former I never met and don't know his name, but think it is Peter Fitzgerlad, Bart, and hear he is very Wealthy, and has only just come into title.
My mother was Louise Atkin, of Careystown Co Cork. Her mother was one of the daughters of Col Fitzgerald of Cork Bay, Co Cork, a leading man of that time. His direct descendant, who died a few months since was Sir Robert Umacke-Vencose-Fitzgerald (sorry this is hard to read), a great friend of your fathers in their youth. He was MD for Cambridge for many years. Of course through my mothers family, we are connected with many of the principal families of that portion of Co Cork, but I know none of them, and they probably don't know our name. They like our Kerry relatives are being rapidly wiped out, having all their property lost by robbing Acts of parliament, Land league and Sinn Fein agitations. In Kerry in a very few years, our name will not be known. A few personal remarks - I married the second daughter of the Right Honorable Sir Sam Walker, Bart many years Lord Chamillor of Ireland, and have one son and on Daughter surviving. My son is Captain in the 27th Light Cavalry Indian Army. He harked back to the old connections and married a Hewson.
Unsigned and Undated.
(This I have discovered is written by Edward Fitzgerald Hickson)
About 400 years a Hickson came over from England to Ireland, and eventually owned a large slice of County Kerry. In course of time he, or one of his descendants became Lord of the Manor or Feudal King. This meant that not even the King, Parliament, or the law, could interfere with him. He had his own retainers, army etc. He built two family seats - THE GROVE and BALLINTAGGART - both of which were in my family in my young days, but during the Fencain Riots were got rid of, and he went to England to live, where the restn head of the family, General Hickson, my first cousin, now lives. One of the sons in the old times married into the Royal House of Murray in Scotland, hence the Ducal Coronet in our crest.
In later days, and on account of the disturbed state of Ireland, most of the Kerry properties were sold, and now little belongs to the Hicksons. I alone have little left which is looked after by a nephew of mine ( C J ADAMS) , son of my youngest and only married sister, who married a Captain Adams of the 40th Regt, and who died before I left England.
Now that all my sisters are dead (I have no brothers). I have given instructions to sell all my Irish Interests, so in time the name of Hickson will be a thing of the past in Irelan.
My Mother (a Purdon) belonged to the same sort of clan in the County of Cork. Her father was an Army medical doctor and settled in Kerry. A representative, Rowland Purdon, still lives there.
To show you what went on in the old days, long before I was born, captain Hickson was a law unto himself, had his own body guard, soldiers, police etc. One day a notorious criminal was to be brought before him for trial he (the prisoner) thought he had better get a solicitor. As soon as he appeared in court. Captain H promptly adjourned the court. This went on for some time until the solicitor got tired of coming so far (30 miles) which in those days was a very Long days journey) and the case was then promptly dealt with. In those days there was no appeal from the decision of the king. (Captain Hickson).
My grandfather Purdon was a remarkably clever man. He lived in the dueling days, and my mother told me it was not an uncommon thing of Him to come into breakfast and say he had wounded so and so who had insulted Home. My grandmother was an English woman a Miss Gore, I never saw her.
My father, George Hickson, was a church of England parson, youngest son of captain Hickson, the youngest of Captain Hickson the last of the Feudal Lords. I had three sisters the youngest a very pretty girl, married a Capt Adams, and it her son whom I previously mentioned. She left one daughter , with five children who are now ranching in Canada.
The woman you mentioned is a daughter of Captain Hickson, an officer in the Connaught Rangers. He sold out and came to Australia before I did and took up land. He did not do very well I think. He was a second cousin of mine another brother of his settled in Queensland, and left a nice daughter (lulu). She is married and lives in Warwick.
Some of the members of the Hickson clan married and left children of who I know nothing. The missionary Hickson may be one of them, but as he speaks of relations I have never heard of, I don't know where he comes in. I have lots of relatives married to Sir Maurice Fitzgerlad, Sir William Cox, Col. Blennerhasset, Lord V entry, Col. Tennant etc.
