About John Hawkins, III

John (5), younger son of John (4) and Mary Dewe, born 1680, imigrated to Virginia 1705 at St. Annes Parish Essex Co. He aquired land in St. George Parish in Spotsylvania Co., in King William Co., and in Caroline Co,. He married Mary Long, daughter of John Long, another early settler in Virginia. John (5) was thought to be a close relative possibly a brother of Philomon Hawkins who came to Virginia with his wife Eleanor Ann Howard. They all settled near Todd's Ridge which was at that time in King and Queen County over the Metapony River. (County boundaries changed often in early Virginia as the population increased.) A book written by descendants of Philomon Hawkins claims that he is a direct descendant of Sir John Hawkins. Records and deeds in the above counties show the dates and locations of land transactions for John Hawkins and Philomon.

John (5) and Mary had children; Joseph, Philomon, William, Mary, Phebe, and Elizabeth. There was possibly a son named Nicholas. He mentions some of them in land transactions but his will was destroyed. His death occured 1740.
