Looking for information on Elizabeth Anderson who had children by Edward Hicks, officer in the 70th Regiment of foot, stationed in British West Indies ca 1765 to 1775. We know he was in Grenada and Tobago (owned land at Crown Point). He was born in New York, but his mother was a Ricketts whose cousins still lived in Jamaica. His Walton cousins were merchants who sailed frequently to the West Indies.

Children of Edward and Elizabeth, who were most likely born in BWI were Edward Hicks Jr, later a Major in the 70th, died in West Indies, Charles Hicks, 24th Reg., Anna Hicks, William Hicks, Elizabeth Hicks. He also had a daughter Mary, ( we believe she was the eldest) daughter of Mary Mawbey. All children are listed in his will written in Halifax, Canada, in 1781.

Any connections?
