Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Dublin. Frederick Hicks was born in Banbury, Oxfordshire, on 16 May 1870. According to the English census of 1871, he was the fourth son of Joseph Hicks, linen draper of Banbury and his wife Mary. He was educated at Taunton School and received his architectural training at the London Architectural Association School and at Finsbury Technical College. In 1886 he became an articled pupil of John William Stevens of London. On completing his articles in 1890, at the age of twenty, he came to Dublin to take up a trial appointment in the office of JAMES RAWSON CARROLL JAMES RAWSON CARROLL , where FREDERICK BATCHELOR  FREDERICK BATCHELOR was then the chief assistant. He remained with Carroll for two and a half years. After a year in the office of WILLIAM HENRY BYRNE  WILLIAM HENRY BYRNE and three and a half years as chief assistant to THOMAS DREW THOMAS DREW , he set up in practice on his own in Dublin in 1895. He appears to have formed some sort of informal professional association with FREDERICK AUGUSTUS BUTLER FREDERICK AUGUSTUS BUTLER . He was working from the same premises as Butler at 5 St Stephen's Green in February 1898 and at 28 South Frederick Street and 35a Kildare Street from 1900 until Butler's death in 1903.(1)

In 1905 Hicks entered into partnership with Frederick Batchelor at 86 Merrion Square.(2) The seventeen-year partnership of BATCHELOR & BATCHELOR & amp; HICKS, which, as Hicks recalled, was temporarily clouded by only one serious disagreement,(3) lasted until 1922, when Batchelor retired.(4) Hicks continued to work from the same premises until his own retirement in 1945, when he sold the practice to his assistant ALAN HOPE. ALAN HOPE. (5) In 1929 he was elected president of the RIAI, holding the office until the end of 1931. As president he invited the RIBA to hold its annual conference in Dublin for the first time in the summer of 1931.(6)

Hicks was an attractive draughtsman.  Between 1926 and 1963 he exhibited frequently at the Water Colour Society of Ireland's exhibitions,and in 1936 and between 1952 and 1960 he also exhibited at the RHA.  Several of his sketches were published in the Irish Builder and elsewhere,(7)  Four sketchbooks are in the Manuscript Department of Trinity College Library.(8) He had a good bass voice and at the AAI's 'smoking concerts' was often called upon to perform 'the Association's favourite old ditties - "Troll, troll, bonny brown bowl", "Merrion Square" and "Fuzzy wuzzy"'.(9) He was a member of the Strollers, a long-established men's amateur singing club.

Hicks died at at home at The Tower, Malahide, on 24 April 1965 shortly before his ninety-fifth birthday and was buried beside his wife and a daughter in a grave marked by a tombstone of his own design in the churchyard of St Andrew's Church of Ireland church, Malahide. His wife, Edith, whom he had married in 1905 and who died in 1926, was the youngest daughter of Daniel Sykes, of Annerley, Huddersfield, Yorkshire.(10) The couple had two daughters, Violet and Patricia, and one son, George Herbert Bawtree Hicks, who became chief engineer in the brewery of Walker,Tetley at Warrington, Lancashire. His pupils and assistants included LORENZO BAKER  LORENZO BAKER and FINIAN H. TALLON. FINIAN H. TALLON.

The Irish Architectural Archive holds a number of drawings by Hicks in the Alan Hope Collection (Acc. 86/127).
