He married Hope Stowe, of Middletown, CT, daughter of Ichabod, in 1708, and seems to have remained in Middletown until his decease in 1727. Administration was granted to the widow, Hope Hawley, on the estate of her late husband, Jehiel Hawley, Sept 5, 1727, and the inventory was exhibited to the Court by her, May 7, 1728; and so on April 13, 1730, she was empowered to take the guardianship of her children: Hope aged ten years; Samuel, seven; and Hannah, four.
