Date: Fri, 17 Oct 2003 02:10:15 EDT
Here's a bit more on your ancestors. This is what Charles Henry Pope's
"Pioneers of Massachusetts" says:
HAWK, HAWKS, HAWKES
Adam, Charlestown, 1634; removed to Lynn; propr. `638. He deposed in
1658, age about 50 years; his son-in-law Thomas Hutchinson deposed in same case/

his wife; to Frances, Samuel; to Frances, Samuel, Thomas and Edward
Hutchinson; to Elizabeth Hart, and to Moses, son of John Hart.
The one below might have been a kin, sine he also lived in Lynn. This
is all Pope says about him:
Isaac, Lynn, called to court 29 (10) 1646.

weeks old, came in the Susan and Ellen in April 1635. Settled at Cambridge.

Thomas, Simon and Joseph certain portions 22 (7) 1645. She m. #2 Rev. Wm.
Tompson of Braintree, who gave his consent tot the arrangement.
The Hutchinsons all seem to be connected, one way or another, so I'll just
give you everything that Pope says. That's easier for me than trying to sort
out which is the best for you.

book says but I think it was meant to be "1591." That would make more sense.);
who was destined to take a very significant part in the affairs of the new
country. She wrote numerous addresses or sermons on religious subject in a very
ernest spirit, but presented a number of doctrines quite out of harmony with
those held by the churches of New England; gathered about her a large number of
men, as well as women; placed the ministers and officials of the colony in a
position of embarrassment and opposition to herself; and drew down on herself
and her bro.-in-law, Mr. John Wheelwright, a storm of persecution. She was
banished to Rhode Island, but not there relieved from Pursuit of the Mass.
authorities. To this was added the affliction of Indiam\n atrocities; and she was
killed by the savages in Sept. 1643. Her husband was a businessman of large
ability; and no fault was found with his except for his sympathy and aid to

(Jan's note: I don't have any direct ancestral connection to the
Hutchinson family........however.....my immigrant ancestor was John Marshall, who
came over in the ship Hopewell, in Sept. 1635, at age 14, and served in the
household of Edward Hutchinson until he reached manhood! I can well imagine
that he witnessed a lot of the action and troubles in this household.)

Eng. 1623-1631. He came to Boston with wife and family in 1636. Recd. to
church 12 (4) 1636. Preached at Braintree and often at Boston. Joined with his
sister-in-law, Mrs. Anne Hutchinson, in advancing views which were regarded
erroneous and seditious by most of the clergy and rulers; after much controversy
was banished 3 (9) 1637. Removed to Exeter, New Hampshire, and later to
Wells, Maine. His sentence of banishment was revoked by the Gen. Court in 1644
upon his making an apology for "inconsiderate" words at the time of the
controversy. He was pastor at Hampton, 1647-1658; at Salisbury from Bed. 9, 1662, till
his death. He was conceded to b upright, earnest and efficient for good; and
rendered valuable service in laying foundations for three states. He deeded,
22 Oct. 1677, to his dau. Sarah Crispt, of Boston, land and tenement at
Mawthorp in the parish of Willoughby, so. Lincoln, Eng., referring to Belleaw, same
co. as his former residence.
