Sidney Buckingham WICKS1

(1851 - 1915)
Father*William Poulter WICKS1 b. 1807, d. 1859
Mother*Sarah Elizabeth BUCKINGHAM1 b. c 1822, d. 1893
Sidney Buckingham WICKS (or George WESTON)(1851-1915)
Sidney Buckingham WICKS was born in Landport, Hampshire, on 1 April 1851.2,3,1 and was baptised on 4 September 1853 at St Marys in Portsea.4
He was listed as the nephew of Purton WESTON in the 1861 Census at 20 Queen Sq in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.2

He enlisted in the Royal Navy, as Boy 2nd class (height 4' 9", hair dark, eyes blue) on 8 November 1865 at Portsmouth, Hampshire. He volunteered for service on the 8 Nov 1865 at HMS Excellent (a stone frigate), but did not commence his ten year continuous service engagement until 1 April 1869.5

Sidney Buckingham WICKS was also known as George WESTON although there is much confusion surrounding the use of these two names and how or why Sidney became George. We have recorded here the known registration of the birth of the children (as 'WICKS') but all of them attended school as 'WESTON' and all except two also lived and married as 'WESTON'. There is also no record of a Sidney WICK's life in New Zealand, plus all the evidence suggests he lived as a WESTON in the Te Puke area as a general contractor and carrier and was buried as George WESTON, along with his wife Harriet.6

The 'Auckland Star' of July-Aug 1870 records the remand (from Tauranga to Auckland) of one George Weston, pleading guilty to being a deserter from HMS Rosario, and subsequently being remanded further until one of Her Majesty's ships appeared. Due to the continued lack of such a ship he was further remanded on the 29th of July and the 5th of August, but after that there is no further mention of him.
It is unclear if this is the 'real' George Weston (who was a contemporary RN seaman), or Sidney Wicks claiming to be George Weston.7

He married Harriet TIPPETT in Waiuku on 16 June 1881.8

Sidney described himself as 'pilot boatman' on his son's birth certificate in 1885.9

Sidney died on 13 November 1915 in Te Puke, Bay of Plenty, at age 64.10,6 He was buried at the Te Puke Old Cemetery in Te Puke.10
