Besides Edmoud, among the early settlers of Massachusetts were Edward Hawes, who was in Dedham in 1648; Richard Hawes of Dorchester, who came in the Truelove in September 1635; and Robert Hawes of Salem, Wenham, and Roxbury, in which last named town he died in 1666. There is no evidence that these were of kin to each other, and they certainly were not nearly related to Edmond, although it seems not improbable that Richard was of the Warwickshire stock.
