John Hawkes
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1613, England
Death: Jun., 1662
Hampshire County
Massachusetts, USA

Born by 1613 (based on date of freemanship). Came to Massachusetts Bay in 1634 (based on date of freemanship). First settled in Dorchester; moved to Windsor in 1635, & Hadley by 1660. Buried Hadley 30 June 1662.
Married by 1643 Elizabeth _____. She married (2) ROBERT HINSDALE {1637, Dedham} and (3) Thomas Dibble, son of ROBERT DIBBLE {1634, Dorchester}. She died at Windsor on 29 September 1685
Imogene Hawks Lane claimed that John Hawkes came to New England in 1630, based on an entry in the Winthrop Papers, but this is only a guess, and misreads the record.
No record of John Hawkes has been found between his freemanship in 1634 and his record of landholding in Windsor in 1640. He would have been at least twenty-one years old in 1634, but did not marry until about late 1642, when he would have been nearly thirty. These circumstances raise the question whether the John Hawkes of Dorchester in 1634 was the same as the Windsor man.
If John Hawkes was one of the early migrants from Dorchester to Windsor in 1635, we would have an explanation for the lack of further records in Massachusetts Bay, and the records for Windsor in the later 1630s are few. We then need only to assume that he married about five years later than average for men of his time. Some doubt remains, but we assume here that all these records pertain to one man named John Hawkes.
