    • Divorce
      Date: 01 JUN 1655
      Place: New Amsterdam, New Netherlands
      Memo: John Hicks was granted a divorce from Herodias in the court at New Amsterdam by Governor Peter Stuyvesant. The original decree is in the state archives at Albany and an abstract follows:
      "Wij de Heeren Raaden van N. Nederlant gesien en geleesen sijnde t request van John Hicks Schout tot Flissingen opt Lange Eijlant waer bij hij remonstreert en te kennen geeft dat sinj huijsvrouw Hardwood Longh van hem weck geloopen en met een ander omtrent 9 jaeren getrout is geweest en daer bij 5 a 6 kinderen heeft geprocureert; versocht derhalven dewijlen sijn huijsvrouw den bant vant houwelijcx hadden gebroocken (: sonder dat hij haer eenige reden daertoe hadde gegeven) dat hij mocht gequalificeert enhem teegelaten worden omme met eenich eerbare Dochter ofte Wedue te moogen in den houwelijken staat (:volgens politique en Ecclisiastique ordannantien) treeden.

    Divorced:
    • They quarreled (probably because she became an emotional Quaker) and separated. In 1642 he left and went to the western part of Long Island, then under Dutch rule.
      On 12 December 1645 John Hicks wrote from Flushing to John Coggesall at Newport the following:
      "Now for parting what way there is seeing she have carried the matter so subtilly as she have I know nt, but if there be anyway to bee used to untie that Knott, wch was at first by man tyed that so the world may be satisfied I am willing thereunto, for the Knot of affection on her part have been untied long since, and her whoredome have freed my conscience on the other part, so I leave myself to yor advice being free to condissend to yor advice if ther may be such a way used for the final parting for us."
      Herodias obtained a divorce from Hicks in Rhode Island.

    Married:
    • After Hicks went to New Netherland, and possibly before, Herodias went to live with George Gardiner of Newport as his common-law wife and had a numerous family.
