Hickman (Ballykett)

This branch of the Hickman family is descended from George Hickman, second son of Henry Hickman of Ballykett, Kilrush, county Clare (died 1713), and older brother of Hugh Hickman of Fenloe. George married Jane Fox and had three sons, the eldest of whom was Anthony Hickman of Ballykett who married Eleanor Finch. George's sister Katherine married Edward Van Hogart of nearby Querrin. In 1773 Henrietta Hickman daughter of Anthony married James Fitzgerald Massy. In the mid 19th century the representatives of Anthony Hickman held an estate in the parishes of Moyarta and Kilfearagh, barony of Moyarta and Kilmanaheen, barony of Corcomroe, county Clare. Part of this estate was in the possession of the Misses Goldwyers in the early 20th century.
