Our Maryland Heritage, Book 34 : The Hawkins Families


This volume, the thirty-fourth in a series of Maryland families, concentrates on one branch of the Hawkins family descended from Henry Hawkins, who owned various tracts of land in both Charles and Prince George’s Counties. This book covers more than 300 years and twelve generations in both the male and female lines located primarily in Montgomery and Frederick Counties with numerous references to family in other counties and states. Data was compiled from census records, will records, family files, church and cemetery records, and published books and records from the Montgomery County Historical Society library. Chapter One provides information from the early years in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Charles, Frederick, Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties to establish background lineage and interrelationships. Chapter Two begins with Henry Hawkins and his nine children from two marriages. His first wife was Eleanor Hawkins; his second was Elizabeth Wynn Hawkins. Each subsequent chapter covers his descendants: John Hawkins (1738), Susannah Hawkins (1716), Thomas Hawkins (1817), Benjamin Hawkins (1801) and Mary Ellen Hawkins (1830). The final chapter covers miscellaneous Hawkins family members not connected to the main body of families discussed in earlier chapters. As in previous volumes, Mr. Hurley provides an extensive bibliography and a full name index, a boon to any serious researcher of Hawkins family history.
