Annie Hicks, Daniel Hicks, and Hannah Wenlock Hicks map locations

Looking at the possible census entries for Ann, Daniel and Hannah, I wanted to see where they were physically located. Here is a screen from google earth of the locations. Each of their birthplaces we believe to be Barking, Essex, England. The other two highlighted areas are Romford and Tower Hamlets where Ann may have been a servant in 1851.

A possible death date for Daniel Hicks

Here is a death reference that fits with previous information we have on Daniel Hicks. This show that he died in the first quarter of 1873 at an age of 62 and living in Romford which is where he had been in the 1851 census. This is from the FreeBMD Death Index.

1851 Census, probably Daniel Hicks

1851 Census, probably Daniel Hicks

This appears to be Daniel Hicks in 1851. He is living in the Romford Union Workhouse (apparently the same place his wife will be later in 1881). It has him listed as a 40(?) year old married "Pauper" that was previously a "Seaman". This fits with Annie's description of him being and invalid and a sailor.

I found a link giving information about the Romford Union Workhouse including pictures and a link to see who was there in 1881.

written by herself, April 9, 1931

I was born in Barking, Essex, England, on the 8th of January 1837, the younger daughter of Daniel Hicks, a sailor, and Hannah Wenlock Hicks. I knew very little of my father's family. My mother was born of Scotch and English parents.

Father being a confirmed invalid, I had, as it were, to keep and care for myself, assuming the responsibilities of a woman when I was a mere girl. As a child, I was very devout, praying and asking God for guidance and firmly believing that he would protect me from all wrong. And surely, I have been saved many times from most certain evil.

I was alone, or rather away from my own people at the time I first heard the Gospel and I think I loved it the first time I heard it; it seemd so quiet and pleasant to me. I embraced the Gospel and was baptized on the 17th of January, 1855, in the White Chapel Branch in London. Shortly after my baptism, before I had been confirmed, my relatives sent me a terrible book against the Mormons, marking it in places for me to read. The tales were so wicked, I was afraid I had done wrong and decided to ask the Lord to direct me aright. I fervently pleaded with our Father to answer my prayer that night as my confirmation was to take place the following morning.
