ADAM HAWKES, son of JOHN HAWKES, was baptized Jan. 26, 1605/06 at St. Andrews Church, Hingham, Norfolk, England, according to the Parish register there. An older brother, Stephen, had been baptized there on Dec. 5, 1602. The Parish register was started in 1600, and there is no record of other children of this family. The marriage of JOHN HAWKES and Mary Cowper is recorded on Jan. 27, 1612. It is not known if this is a second marriage for JOHN, or the marriage of an older son born before the Parish register was started.
There is no further mention of this family in the register or other records in the Parish Chest, and the muster rolls of the parish, indicating military service, do not include the names of Adam or Stephen.
According to Charles Edward Banks in his "Topigraphical Dictionary", ADAM HAWKES came to America in
1630 with the Winthrop Fleet. On the fly leaf of John Winthrop's Journal March 29-July 8, 1630, a
partial list of the male passengers includes the surnames HAWKE and HAWKES, without given names. It has
been stated by learned genealogists that these were the brothers ADAM and John. No further explanation
exists regarding why it is thought that John is a brother.
