Immediate Family

About Ephraim Hawley

During the American Revolution, Ephraim Hawley (1746–1777) served as a Lieutenant on the two-masted schooner USS Royal Savage (1776). His cousin, Captain David Hawley, commanded the ship.

At the Battle of Valcour Island on Lake Champlain on October 11, 1776, the USS Royal Savage ran aground and was burned by the crew to prevent it from falling into British hands. The Royal Savage had been Maj. General Benedict Arnold's flagship until he went aboard the USS Congress (1776). All of Arnold's personal belongings were destroyed when the Royal Savage was burned. This naval battle was the first of the newly formed United States Navy and delayed for one year the British attempts to cut the colonies in half.
