Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Bicknell graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1831. He completed the study of law at Yale Law School. He was admitted to the bar in 1836 and commenced practice in New York City before moving to Lexington, Indiana, in 1846. He married Elizabeth Haskins Richards (November 13, 1816 - July 1, 1909), daughter of Jesse and Sarah Haskins Richards of Batsto, New Jersey.(1) They had at least two sons (Jesse Richards Bicknell and Admiral George Augustus Bicknell, III) and two daughters (Martha Haskins Richards Bicknell Mahon and Emma Valeria Pintard Bicknell Love).

Bicknell was elected prosecuting attorney of Scott County in 1848 and then circuit prosecutor in 1850. He moved to New Albany in 1851. He served as judge of the second judicial circuit of Indiana 1852-1876, and was also a professor of law at Indiana University 1861-1870.

Bicknell was elected as a Democrat to the Forty-fifth and Forty-sixth Congresses (March 4, 1877 – March 3, 1881). He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1880.
