About the Haws surname

I know that my 4th great grandfather George Hawes changed the spelling of our last name from Haws to Hawes . He was born in 1842. Interesting to note that his marriage license Has Haus and his pension papers has Haws. I think he left this as clues for his ancestors to know. I am looking for information on how my earlier decentant Samuel Haws Sr. born in 1741, got to the United States. The information that I have on him just says that he was born in Augusta, Virginia. But his mother information states that he was born in , The Highlands Perth, Angus border, Haws Mansion, Scottland, United Kingdom. The brothers children and his children are the same ones I already had handed down to me . I have had some rumored info that he was a orphan bonded to James Sayer. Benjamin his brother was an orphan bonded to John Archer.
