Excursus VIII: Hawkins

Published Genealogical Records

We have found no published Hawkins Genealogy or genealogical article that can be linked to our particular Hawkins line [as of c.1980 - GL,III, ed.]

Unpublished Genealogical Records

Back in 1931-1932, when I embarked on research of my ancestral lines, seeking the ancestry of Eliza Jane Matilda Hawkins, wife of my Daniel Withers, her father was named as Capt. John Hawkins, born in Maryland and in command of Virginia Continental troops.  But there appeared to be three or four Capt. John Hawkins who fitted this description.

For many years I sought positive identification of the proper John Hawkins, jotting down every bit of Hawkins data that I came across, but never finding the data for positive identification.  I accumulated about fifty closely written Hawkins notes without success.  There my Hawkins research rested.

In 1974 Lou Hough and I were brought together by our joint interest in producing this book on Massey and allied families.

Lou had also accumulated many pages of uncoordinated Hawkins data, and in 1975 he decided to undertake the untangling of the several Hawkins clans that fluourished in several contiguous Virginia and Maryland counties.  I donated my notes to Lou's, and he added much more material via facilities of the L.D.S. [The Church of Latter-Day Saints - GL,III, ed.]

Absorbing, untangling and coordinating all of this data required, not only a monumental amount of patient, hard, detailed labor, but also, and much more importantly, genealogical detective skill of the highest order.

By 1977, Lou Hough had accomplished his purpose; Excursus VIII: Hawkins is based, almost 100%, on his notes and on two of his large Hawkins Family diagrams, Chart II and Chart III: "Ralph Hawkins, Sr., Anne Arundel County, Maryland," revised 15 Jun.1977; revised 10 Apr.1978; revised 3 Jun.1981.

Potential Hawkins Genealogy

In addition to the Chart II and Chart III that I used for this Esxcursus VIII: Hawkins, Lou also produced six large additional diagrams:
"Hawkins of Maryland; the Early Ones," 15 Jun.1977; revised 10 Apr.1978; revised 5 Jun.1981. [Contains about thirty-five Hawkins names.]
"Hawkins; Anne Arundel County, Maryland; Partly Baltimore County," 15 Jun.1977; revised 11 Apr.1978; revised 5 Jun.1981. [Contains about seventy Hawkins names.]
"Hawkins of that part of Baltimore County that became Hartford County, Maryland," Apr.1978; revised 3 Jun.1981. [Contains the probable brothers Robert Hawkins and John Hawkins, Jr. and sixty or so Hawkins names.]
"Henry Hawkins, Charles County, Maryland," 15 Jun.1977; revised 12 Apr.1978; revised 3 Jun.1981. [Contains over sixty Hawkins names.]
"Hawkins of Eastern Shore, Maryland," 13 Apr.1977; revised 20 Apr.1978. [Contains about thirty-five Hawkins names.]
"The Other Fauquier County, Virginia Hawkins," 1 Jun.1981. [Contains over fifty Hawkins names.]

In addition to these eight diagrams, there are over sixty pages of notes of the sources that support the diagrams.

With all of the hard, preliminary work already completed, the next and obvious step would be to work it up into a formal Hawkins Genealogy of this Virginia-Maryland geographical area.

Lou Hough has decided that he does not choose to act as author of such a Hawkins Genealogy; [instead, he] would prefer to turn over his material to a Hawkins descendant qualified and ready to assume the responsibility.  To date [c.1980 - GL,III, ed.], such a person has not been found. 

It would be a shame if all this excellent preliminary groundwork were to go unused.  We urge that prospective authors come forward and work out an arrangement with:
