notes

Nicholas Hathaway was at Braintree, Massachusetts as early as February 24, 1639, when he was granted some land. He moved to Taunton in 1640. "Daughters of Founders and Patriots" page 120

"Early records of him in England spell Hathway without the "a" between Hath and way. He was the progenitor of the largest branch of the Hathaways (Hathways, Hatheways, etc.) in America, and was the probable son of Thomas and Margaret Hathway of Kingscote, Gloucestershire, England. He was probably born about 1595, at perhaps what is known today as Binley Farm in Kingscote, England. His death record has never been found either in New England or Old England, where some descendants believe he returned.

There is proof that he arrived in New England between 24 February 1638-1639, and lived in Braintree (Suffolk Deeds 1/28: 14.5) In 1642, adjoining lands were described as "between the lands of Hattaways and Daniel Lovell". He was not on the list of men of Plymouth Colony able to bear arms in 1643. He may have had several children, including Jacob and Joseph, but certainly had son John, probably b. 1629 in England, and probably d. 1705, in Taunton, MA." -Hathaways of America, Pub. 1970.

The largest branch of the Hathaway's in America are descendants of Nicholas Hathaway, the probable son of Thomas and Margaret Hathaway of Kingscote, Gloucestershire, England, and probably born about 1595. Early records of him in England spelled the name Hathway. There is proof that Nicholas arrived in New England before 24 February 1638-1639, and lived in Braintree (Suffolk Deeds 1/28: 14.5.) In 1642, adjoining lands were described as "between the lands of Hattaways and Daniel Lovell." He was not on the list of men of Plymouth Colony able to bear arms in 1643. He may have had several children, including Jacob and Joseph, but certainly had son John, probably born in 1629 in England, and probably died in 1705, in Taunton, Massachusetts. Nicholas Hathaway became one of the first settlers of Taunton, arriving there from Braintree about 1640. He and his son John became owners of a considerable amount of land in Taunton, including 400 acres in the part subsequently incorporated as Berkley.
