Hicks, Elias 1748- Friends preacher; born in Hempstead, N. Y., March 19, 1748; was a very able preacher among Friends, or Quakers, and was a formally recognized minister at the age of twenty-seven. After preaching many years, he embraced Unitarian views, and boldly promulgated them. This produced a schism in the society, and a separation, the new lights receiving the name of Hicksites, and the old church of Orthodox. They have never fused. He preached with eloquence and vigor until a short time before his death, in Jericho, N. Y., Feb. 27, 1830. See friends, Society of.
