The meaning "market place by the river" would result in the surname being written as Ichibagawa (市場川), not Hisakawa, since 市場 means "marketplace."

The first kanji used for Hisakawa is 久 which means "long time, old story," so the meaning for Hisakawa (久川) would actually be "river of forever." [noted -ed]
