Hicks Origins - Early Hicks Ancestry

Sources:

Note: In this tree, while the Hicks line back to Ellis is verified, some generations of other lines, especially prior to 1550, are speculative as there are minimal sources for them, namely just user-entered family trees on Ancestry.com mentioned above.

In North America, Family Histories, 1500-2000 (370 of 555), there is the following information:

"Robert and Thomas Hicks, b. in England about 1575; sons of James, about 1550; son of Baptist, about 1526; son of Thomas; son of John, about 1470, descendant of Ellis Hicks, knighted by Edward, the Black Prince, at the battle of Poictiers, 1356."

So the ancestry in Ellis is verified, but my guess is that there is a missing generation as Ellis' death year is 1445 and the birth year of John is 1455 (or ca. 1470 if going by the above source). Given Ellis' birth year at 1415, he could easily have had a son b. ca. 1435 who in turn could have had John b. ca. 1455-1470 as his son. After all, the above source refers to the below John Hicks as a "descendant" of Ellis Hicks.
