Info from National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century Application

Rev. Hawt/Haute Wyatt came to Virginia on November 18, 1621 on the "George" and served as Rector of the Church at Jamestown, James City County, Virginia, 1621-1625. In 1625, he returned to England and became Vicar of Merston and Boxley Parishes, which he served until his death. He died in England.

"Gentleman's Magazine", 1831, Vol. 101, page 586 printed by J.B. Meales and Son, London, England

Rev. Haute Wyatt was a graduate of Oxford and there made a brilliant record. His portrait hangs in one of the college halls of Oxford. Haute took Holy Orders and was ordained in Canterbury Cathedral. He decided to come to Virginia in 1621 where he served as chaplain to his brother, Sir Franicis Wyatt, at that time governor of Virginia for his first term. In 1625, he returned to England and became rector of the Boxley Parish Church in Kent County, England.

"The Wyatts in England" by Leonardo Andrea

In 1621, Rev. Haute Wyatt came to Jamestown, Virginia. His oldest brother, Sir Franics Wyatt was twice governor of Virginia. Sir Francis brought his brother to Jamestown as his chaplain. Some think that the Rev. haute was a pastor of the Episcopal church in Jamestown, but this no evidence has been found listing him as a pastor in Jamestown. Rev. Haute Wyatt brought his oldest son, Edward, who two years old, with him to Jamestown, Virginia.

He returned to England where he died in 1638. While in Virginia he took up large grants of land for his children. After his death, his children returned to Virginia. He is buried in the chancel at Boxley Church in Boxley, Kent, England. There is a mural tablet on the wall of Boxley Church in his memory.

(special thanks to M. Powers for the following info submitted without documentations) I would like to suggest a change to the children. According to the guardianship records of Hawte Wyatt's children, Hawte's mother Lady Jane applied for money for supporting the children in April of 1639, after getting custody for them (Archdeaconry Court of Canterbury)in October of 1638. The children listed in 1638 were George, age 19, Edward, age 16, John, age 9, and Anne, aged 8. George and Edward were listed in Virginia soon after, possibly returning with their uncle, Governor Francis Wyatt in late 1639.
