About John Hawkins of MD, "Mariner"

JOHN HAWKINS of Ann Arundel County, Maryland

Has been the subject of more Wild Mass Guesses as to his parentage than almost anybody else in his time period.

John Hawkins immigrant, a Quaker of Ann Arundel County, Maryland who died in 1676.

Origins

Seen as son of Richard Hawkins (*probably* no relation to the Admirals) and Grace Cutland; baptized in Warminster, Wiltshire, England on Mar 22, 1639. However, it seems Grace Hawkins was buried Jan 1639 in Slapton, Devon. This John cannot have had that baptism date and have been her son. She married that Richard (Not The Admiral's Son) Hawkins in 1633.

Seen as son of Capt. John Hawkins and Hester Hawkins. But their son John Hawkins, (again) died 1670 in England; no children.

There seems no known relationship with Richard Hawkins, of Westmoreland County

Comments from https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hawkins-228

it is very difficult to determine the background and the arrival date of John Hawkins to the Maryland Colony because the name is such a common one. An index of early settlers lists seven men named John Hawkins as early immigrants between 1651 and 1679. He is most likely the John Hawkins listed as a mariner of New England who was in Maryland by 1651 since his will mentions a trip to New England. [1]. At the time of his death there were at least three other men with the same name living in the colony, one in Kent County, one in St. Mary's and the other in Cecil County.[2] Previous entries for his biography assigning him definite parents in England have been removed for this reason.

----------------------------------

John Joseph Hawkins was born in 1634 to Richard and Grace Cutland Hawkins. Select Marriages, 1538–1973 confirms that Richard married Grace Cutland on Oct 14. 1633, in Slapton,Devon,England. Baptismal records confirm that he was baptized on March 22, 1639 at Warminster, Wiltshire, England.

Note: The dates don't work. Richard Hawkins of Pryvitt and ELIZABETH (not Grace anybody) started baptizing THEIR children at Slapton on October 1[8], 1635. https://thesignsofthetimes.com.au/Devon_Slapton_bap.htm

Explanation of "Select Marriages", according to werelate: org: This is an index of information transcribed from digital copies of original records housed in repositories throughout England. The index is stored in an electronic database which may be searched on the free FamilySearch site. The original sources may include church records, civil registrations, AND FAMILY RECORDS. (Emphasis added!)

His immigration record was found on Transcript. Q:435-6 [SR 7346], MSA SC 4341-2985 confirming that his arrival was in 1658. These documents are located at the Maryland State Archives.

Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol 1, pg 107 validates that he married Mary Foster in 1660. Mary Foster’s father was Seth Foster. The Foster line was originally from Ipswich, England. The date of her death comes from family data and says about 1662.

Is this correct?

From https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/141443295/mary-townley-hawkins In about 1662 John chose Mary Warner, the daughter of Augustine Warner and Mary Towney Warner to be his bride. [NO]

From this union the following children were born:

  • Augustine Hawkins 1663 – 1700;
  • Joseph Hawkins 1665 – 1726;
  • Elizabeth Hawkins 1665;
  • Ann Hawkins 1666 – 1690;
  • Matthew Hawkins 1668 – 1705, from an excerpt of Mathew's will he deeded 90 acres to his brother Joseph; and
  • Thomas Hawkins 1671 – 1715

. Family Data and millennium files attest to the fact that both John Joseph and Mary Warner Hawkins passed away in 1676, John on Mar. 17, 1676 in Garrison Forest in Baltimore Co. Maryland. It is unknown exactly where they are buried.

John Hawkins, of Ann Arundel County Maryland, d. 1676, was involved in numerous land transactions in Ann Arundel County and in 1670 he purchased the 100-acre 'Pole Almanack Neck' acreage from William Davis. On the third of February in 1670, this John Hawkins, also known as, John Hawkins "Mariner", made his will naming his children and leaving everything to his wife Mary. He signed his will in his own hand, indicating that he was an educated man for his time. From the will of John Hawkins, Robert W. Bames in his book, Baltimore County Families, 1659-1 759, identified his sons as JOHN b. circ 1660; AUGUSTINE b. 1663; JOSEPH, d. 1726; MATTHEW, d. 1705; and THOMAS d. 1715. Moreover, through various records, Barnes and others have been able to identify many family members of these sons....

In his book, Baltimore County Families, 1659-1 759, Robert W. Barnes lists a number of Hawkins families living in Baltimore County during the time in which we are interested.

1. A John Hawkins migrated from New York and was in Baltimore County by July 1658 when he and Thomas Goldsmith surveyed 600 acres of Planter's Delight. He died by March 1670. He was apparently murdered, because Charles James posted a bond assuring that he would appear before the Lieutenant General in Saint Mary's County to prosecute the murderers. Barnes could find no children for this John Hawkins, but he did find a brother and heir, Robert. According to Barnes, Robert Hawkins was a rope maker and came from London to settle his brother's estate by May 1673.

2. Barnes' book lists another John Hawkins who died 22 July 1713. This John married twice, the second time to Rebecca, widow of both James Emerson and James Cobb. This John Hawkins died testate and his will named son John, daughter Ann Litton, wife Rebecca and son-in-law James Cobb.

3. According to Barnes there was a Robert Hawkins who died in Baltimore County in 1761. Robert married Ann Preble on 15 November 1709. Robert's will lists children: Thomas, Robert, Ralph, and William and daughters Ann Renshaw, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sarah Beaver, and Mary.

4. Finally, there was John Hawkins who died in adjacent Ann Arundel County by 17 March 1676. His will of 3 February 1670 names wife Mary and children John, Joseph, Anne, Matthew and Thomas. Much information about this family can be found in the minutes of the West River Monthly Meeting, of the Society of Friends. The West River Meetings were in Ann Arundel County.
