Judge Hicks, A Loyalist Of Bucks County

Old Tavern In Pennsylvania (Not Bucks County)

"Judge [Gilbert] Hicks opened court at Newtown in the name of the King and, as a result of this and his swinging over to the Loyalists after having enrolled as an Associator on the American side, found himself so unpopular that he was obliged to flee to the British in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, to escape a mob of Whigs.
