Property

Taken from A HISTORY OF HIGHLAND COUNTY by Oren Frederick Morton.

The crown grant given below was signed by Francis Fauquier, and was issued on a survey lying on a "draft of New Found Land Creek" (Bullpasture River). Like all crown deeds of that day it is printed on parchment.

GEORGE the Second by the Grace of God of Great Britain France and Ireland King Defender of the Faith &c. TO ALL TO WHOM these Presents shall come Greeting Know ye that for divers good Causes and Considerations but more especially for and in Consideration of the Sum of Ten Shillings ($1.67) of good and Lawful Money for our Use paid to our Receiver General of our Provinces in this our colony and Dominion of Virginia WE HAVE Given Granted and Confirmed and by these Presents for us our Heirs and Successors Do Give Grant and Confirm unto Hugh Hicklin (here follows a description of the tract of land and its boundaries.)

Note: "Free and common soccage" was when land was held through certain and honorable service, as by fealty to the King and the payment of a nominal sum of money. The tenant "in capite" held his title immediately from the king, as in the case of nobles and knights. The feast of St. Michael is September 29, and in a liberal sense it refers to the fall of the year.

Census

History of Highland County Pages 391 THE SETTLERS OF 150 YEARS AGO.

It is, of course, impossible to present an accurate list of the householders who were here in 1761, after 15 yeass of settlement. A few of the names we found are probably those of non-residents. On the other hand there were people here who did not own land, and of such there is only casual mention Iin the record books. The following is therefore only an approximation to the actuial fact, the real number being doubtless somewhat larger than here appears. Nearly all were living in Stonewall and at the mouth of Bolar Run.

...

Carlile, John. Carlile, Robert. ... Hicklin, Hugh. Hicklin, John.

Property

In 1767 Hugh Hicklin sold the 100 acres he received from VA a few years earlier.

Property

Hugh Hicklin received a land patent signed by Gov Randolph in Augusta Co, Virginia. The original warrant was issued in 1775.

Census

Census shows Hugh and wife, both over 45 years old, living alone in Montgomery Co, KY.

Event

Hugh Hicklin was involved in building many of the original roads in the Bull Pasture.

According to Chalkey's History of Augusta, Vol 1, p 441: May 1753, Hugh Hicklin, Thomas Hicklin, John Hicklin and others petitioned for a road from William Wilson's Mill, on the Jackson River to Captain Ashton's mill, in the Bull Pasture.

AREAS OF SETTLEMENT

SINCE only a very minor portion of Bath was covered by the early holdings of the pioneer families, it is possible to group these holdings into several tolerably well defined areas of settlement...

The Dickenson settlement may be considered as extending along the Cowpasture from the gorge below Fort Lewis into the bend at Griffith's Knob, and as including the lower course of Stuart's Creek and the occupied part of Porter's Mill Creek. The more conspicuous of the earlier names associated with this belt are ... Graham, Hicklin,.. Laverty, Mayse... McDannald...

The Bullpasture settlement stretched along the entire course of that stream from its source nearly to the Bullpasture Gap. Here the names are ... Carlile, ,,, Graham, ... Hicklin,....

THE FAMILIES OF GREATER BATH 195

Hugh Hicklin, who lived some years on the Millroy patent, was the oldest son of Thomas, of the Bullpasture, and he moved to Kentucky about 1797. Sonora Hicklin ( Mrs. Boggs ) .... left the statement that her great-grandfather Hicklin was in Kentucky before Daniel Boone.
