About Hawte / Haute Wyatt, Reverend

Rev. Haute Wyatt was a graduate of Oxford and there made a brilliant record. His portrait hangs in one of the college halls of Oxford. Haute took Holy Orders and was ordained in Canterbury Cathedral. He decided to come to Virginia in 1621 where he served as chaplain to his brother, Sir Franicis Wyatt, at that time governor of Virginia for his first term. In 1625, he returned to England and became rector of the Boxley Parish Church in Kent County, England. (From Findagrave.com)

Although it is often said that he served as rector of the church at Jamestown, there is no documentation for this, and serving as his brother's chaplain was more than enough reason for his presence in the fledgling colony.

From Wikipedia: Although Sir Francis left no direct descendants in what would later become the United States of America, his brother, the Reverend Haute Wyatt who had arrived in Virginia with Francis, is considered the common ancestor to those who claim kinship to the pre-1700 Wyatt family in the Americas.

"The Wyatts in England" by Leonardo Andrea

In 1621, Rev. Haute Wyatt came to Jamestown, Virginia. His oldest brother, Sir Franics Wyatt was twice governor of Virginia. Sir Francis brought his brother to Jamestown as his chaplain. Some think that the Rev. haute was a pastor of the Episcopal church in Jamestown, but this no evidence has been found listing him as a pastor in Jamestown. Rev. Haute Wyatt brought his oldest son, Edward, who two years old, with him to Jamestown, Virginia.

He returned to England where he died in 1638. While in Virginia he took up large grants of land for his children. After his death, his children returned to Virginia. He is buried in the chancel at Boxley Church in Boxley, Kent, England. There is a mural tablet on the wall of Boxley Church in his memory.
