About Sir William Hawkins, II

He neither had nor used a middle name - the addition of "Amadas" is more officious meddling by lazy genealogists "the better to tell them apart".

Married twice. First wife unknown, son William (the elder), daughters Judith, Grace (died 1582) and Clare; second wife Mary Halse, sons Richard, Francis, Nicholas, and William (the younger), daughters Frances, Mary, and Elizabeth.

He definitely had two sons named William, one by unnamed first wife (eldest son), one by wife "Marie" (Mary Halse):

"Concerning my said wife & the children I have now living as well by her as by my former wife, & all my lands I dispose of them as follows -an annuity of £40 to William Hawkins my eldest son for life out of my lands in Plimouth

I give all my lands so charged & all my other lands whatsoever to my wife Marie for life, with remainder to Richard Hawkins my eldest son by the said Marie, & to his heirs male, with remainder respectively in tail mail to Francis my 2"d, Nicholas, my 3,d, William my 4th son &~my own right heirs for ever" http://welbank.net/hawkins/pah/chap2.html
