Notes for William Hawkins:

A branch of the Hawkinses of Nash Court probably settled in Plymouth during the fifteenth century. John Hawkins held lands in the town under the Corporation before 1480, and was dead by or before 1490, when his heirs held them. This was before the Hawkinses were at Tavistock.  William Hawkins, son of John Hawkins (who had lived at Tavistock), and Joan, daughter of William Amadas, of Launceton, was born probably at Plymouth towards the end of the fifteenth century. He was an officer in the navy of King Henry VIII. Being one of the principal sea captains in the West of England, he obtained a high and just reputation for his skill and experience, and was held in great esteem and favour by the King. He is thought to be the same Hawkins who in 1513 was master of the "Great Galley," one of the few Royal ships of that time.

Duos duzit uxores, e quarum una 4 ex altera 7 suscepit liberos. Johannes Hawkyns eques auratus, classis regiae quaestor, frater maestissimus posuit. Objit spe certa resurgendi 7 die mensis Octobris anno domini 1589."

 

The following is a translation:

 

"To the ever living memory of William Hawkyns of Plymouth esquire; who was a worshipper of the true religion; a munificent benefactor to poor mariners; skilled in navigation; oftentimes undertaking long voyages; a just arbiter in difficult cases; and a man of singular faith, probity, and prudence. He had two wives, four children by one, and seven by the other. John Hawkins, Knight, Treasurer of the Queen's Navy, his brother, most sorrowfully erected this. He died in the sure and certain hope of resurrection, on the 7th day of October, in the year of our Lord 1589."

 

Did this William Hawkins have a son named Thomas Hawkins that went to York Co., VA and died c 1640?

Notes for Sir John Hawkins:

Kinsman, probably cousin of Sir Francis Drake.  Leader of ships against Armada.  Many good articles and web sites on this man and his son, Sir Richard Hawkins.  Also spelled Hawkyns.

 

"Hawkins also spelled HAWKYNS English naval administrator and commander, one of the foremost seamen of 16th-century England and the chief architect of the Elizabethan navy.

 

"A kinsman of Sir Francis Drake, Hawkins began his career as a merchant in the African trade and soon became the first English slave trader. By carrying slaves from Guinea, in West Africa, to the Spanish West Indies, he provoked conflict with the Spaniards, who did not  allow unauthorized foreigners to trade with their colonies. Hawkins' first slave-trading voyage, in 1562-63, on behalf of a syndicate of London merchants, was so profitable that a more prestigious group, including Queen Elizabeth I, provided the money for a second expedition (1564-65). His third voyage, with Drake in 1567-69, however, ended in disaster. After selling the slaves in the Caribbean, Hawkins was forced by needed repairs and lack of water to take refuge at San Juan de Ulua, near Veracruz, Mex. A Spanish fleet attacked him in the harbour, and, of the six ships, only the two commanded by Hawkins and Drake were able to escape. This  episode marked the beginning of the long quarrel between England and Spain that eventually led to open war in 1585.

 

"Hawkins soon avenged himself; by gaining the confidence of Spain's ambassador to England, he learned the details of a conspiracy (the so-called Ridolfi plot of 1571) in which English Roman Catholics, with Spanish assistance, were to depose Queen Elizabeth and install Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, on the English throne. Hawkins notified his government, and the English plotters involved were arrested.

 

"In 1577 Hawkins succeeded his father-in-law, Benjamin Gonson, as treasurer of the navy; later (1589) he was to assume the additional duties of controller. His high naval post enabled him to direct the rebuilding of the older galleons and to contribute to the design of faster, more heavily armed ships. It was this new, swift-sailing navy that withstood the Spanish Armada in 1588. Hawkins was third in command during the Armada crisis (during which he was knighted), and afterward he devised the strategy--quite original for that period--of setting up a naval blockade at the Azores to intercept Spanish treasure ships returning from the New World.

 

"In 1595 Hawkins and Drake sailed with 27 ships to raid the Spanish West Indies. Hawkins died the night before an unsuccessful attack on Puerto Rico."

Burial: Waterford, Ireland

 

Notes for Mariam Khan:

The journey of William Hawkins to Agra, and his residence at the court of Jehanghir, may be looked upon as the opening scene of the history of British India.  The Emperor induced the English captain to marry the daughter of Mubarik Khan, a Christian Armenian ; and when Hawkins was dismissed from Agra in November 1611, he took his native wife with him.  They got safely on board Sir Henry Middleton's ship in the following January, and proceeded to Bantam, whence they sailed for England in the Thomas, arriving at Saldanha Bay on April 21st, 1613 and here the letter (or report) of Hawkins to the company terminates abruptly.  He died on the passage from the Cape, and was buried in Ireland. 

Mrs. Hawkins, alone amongst strangers, was left in a very forlorn condition.  But she had one diamond worth £2000, and smaller ones worth £4000, so that she had no difficulty in finding another husband.  In 1614 she married Gabriel Towerson, who had been in the voyage of Captain Saris and brought home the Hector.  In 1617 Captain and Mrs. Towerson went out to India again, and visited Agra; where the lady remained with her relations.  Towerson went home, and in 1620 he was appointed Principal Factor at the Moluccas, where he was judicially murdered, after suffering inhuman treatment from the Dutch, on February 27th, 1623.  He was the chief victim of the Massacre of Amboyna.

In 1609 February, the English merchant Hawkins, travelling from Surat to Burhanpur, even with an escort of about sixty Pathan horse, was attacked by a troop of out-laws. [ The province of Baglan still maintained its independence. The chief's head quarters were at Jaitapur, near Mulher and he levied tolls on all travellers from Surat to Burhanpur, the road passing through his territory. William Hawkins (1608—1613) reached Burhanpur on 8th February, 1609 and next day saw "Chan Channa (Khan Khanan), the Lord general and Viceroy of Deccan".

Notes for Adm. Sir Richard Hawkins:

Sir Richard Hawkins of Slapton

"Hawkins also spelled HAWKYNS, English seaman and adventurer whose Observations in  His Voyage Into the South Sea (1622) gives the best extant idea of Elizabethan life at  sea and was used by Charles Kingsley for Westward Ho!.

 

"The only son of the famed seaman Sir John Hawkins by his first marriage, Richard  Hawkins in 1582 sailed with his uncle William to the West Indies; in 1585 he commanded a ship on Sir Francis Drake's raid on the Spanish Main and was a ship captain during the Armada campaign (1588).

 

"In June 1593 he sailed from Plymouth in the "Dainty" with two smaller vessels, which parted company before reaching the Pacific. In February 1594 he sighted what he called Hawkins Maidenland, probably the Falkland Islands, which had been discovered two years previously by John Davis. After burning four ships at Valparaíso, Hawkins continued up the coast until he met six Spanish warships off Callao. He overcame them; but on June 22, when north of Paita, he was wounded and forced to surrender after a fight lasting three days with two more Spanish ships. He was imprisoned at Lima and then from 1597 till 1602 in Spain, at which date his ransom of £3,000 was paid. On his return he was knighted and elected mayor and MP for Plymouth. In 1608, after five years as vice-admiral of Devon, he was arrested and fined for condoning piracy. In 1620 he sailed as second in command of an ineffective expedition against

 the Algerine corsairs.

 

"His Observations in His Voyage Into the South Sea was printed in 1622, having been composed about 1603."

 "Slapton shall not be slighted, where Guido de Bryan had inheritance, which after the death of the Countess of Wiltshire, came to the Earl of Northumberland, and was purchased by Sir Matthew Arundel of Warder-castle in Wiltshire. And Edward Courtenay, Earl of Devon, held a manor in Slapton, by being chief steward to the Bishop of Exeter, at the time of his inthronization in the cathedral church ogf Exeter, the 7th year of King Henry the 5th - Pole is in this parish, was once a priory, founded by the Poles. After the surrender, it was sold to Ameredith. And John, the son of Edward Ameredith, sold it to Sir Richard Hawkins, knight." Risdon.

Generation No. 5

 

      27.  John Sidney5 Hawkins (Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born Abt. 1604 in St. Andrews, Plymouth, England, and died 1678 in Slapton, Devon, England.  He married Hester Richards 27 Oct 1636 in England, daughter of Edward Richards and Jane Martin.  She was born Abt. 1610 in of Dartmouth, England, and died 23 Jul 1660 in Slapton, England.

 

Notes for John Sidney Hawkins:

He is known to have been at sea in 1629. He lived at Poole in Slapton, which he probably inherited from his mother, Lady Judith, in 1629. He sold the estate at some stage.

He sold the Plymouth estates in 1637-8. John and Hester produced 10 children. John died at Stoke Fleming and was buried in nearby Slapton in 1678.

 

A number of researchers assert that this John Hawkins, sometimes called John Sidney Hawkins, cannot be the ancestor of the American Hawkins families which include Philemon Hawkins.  Some of the church records from Devon indicating why are included with the presumed family of a later family member.

Notes for John Hawkins:

Page 6 of John Henry Hawkins and His Kin by Duane Gage - at DAR Library in Wash. DC

   "John Hawkyns (1643-????), son of John and Hester Hawkyns, was the only male in his family who lived long enough to produce a family.  court records and church records from this era are scarce and, in many cases, illegible.

We can determine that this particular descendant married Mary Dewe, d/o Edward Dewe of Islip, Oxfordshire, and they had fourteen children born between 1671 and 1698.  In 1682 John and Mary Dewe Hawkyns settled at Great Milton, Oxfordshire.  The date of death for this John Hawkyns is not known.     "It is not likely that the family could afford to provide all fourteen children a higher education.  Consequently, some of the younger sons were destined to seek their fortunes on their own.  John Hawkyns, a younger son of John and Mary Dewe Hawkyns, born about 1680, emigrated to the colony of Virginia about 1705 and settled in St. Anne's Parish..... In 1715 another Hawkins brother, Philemon (1690-1725) emigrated to America and settled near his kinsman.  Philemon was the first of our direct ancestors to reach America.  (Mayes, Genealogical Notes, D157; Gen. John Parker Hawkins, Hawkins Family and connections; 1913, p. 70)"

*In her book, Mary Hawkins mentions probate of John’s will, and a listing of his property, which was in his room, in his father’s house.  John would only have been 27 years old, and given that he lived in a room in his father’s house, and his sister was the executer of his will, it seems likely that he never married.  Question: was the John who married Mary Dewe born 21 Sep 1643?  Or is the marriage record all that has been found?

 

Note:  Thomas Edward Hawkins, of England, found where John Hawkins married Agnes Phillips in 1663 at Margate.  This would seem more likely than Oxfordshire.  It’s closer to Slapton, and there are many Heale names in the parrish register.  The problem is, this John had children born after 1670, when John, the son of John esq. Died.  It’s the same problem as the John that married Mary Dewe.

Notes for John Hawkins:

"We have definitely traced the Hawkins line back 5 generations ... to a John Hawkins who we think is ... John was born April 12 1687; ours married Anna someone and their first child was born in 1711 so it could well be the same John. We haven't been able to prove it because the records at Stoke Fleming were destroyed."  geoff.ledden@virgin.net Geoff Ledden August 2001.  The wife and descendants attached here are speculative.

      68.  <Unknown>7 Hawkins (<Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born Abt. 1665.

 

Notes for <Unknown> Hawkins:

A John Hawkins that married Mary Lieux is often shown as the father of Philemon Hawkins.  One report lists a brother as Lieu Dolphus Hawkins, and the similarity is striking.

 

There is no evidence to show that all of these presumed siblings were, in fact, siblings.  They are presented here due to a number of descendants sharing the claim of descent from Sir John Hawkins, the proximity of the Spotsylvania families, and the common name "Philemon" which appears in the line of the Chickahominy / Bute / Warren branch of the compiler.

 

William Hawkins is not listed as a brother of the other immigrant siblings in some accounts, but descendants have similar naming patterns and we in the same vicinity and may be closely related.

Notes for Philemon Hawkins:

Philemon is said to have claimed to be the great-grandson of Sir Richard Hawkins.  Descendants have maintained this as gospel ever since.  Who am I to disagree?  I cannot find the link, however.

 

p. 36 - Hawkins of Virginia, The Carolinas, and Kentucky - published by Dorothy Ford Wulfeck.  "Queries from Genealogy and History Magazine"  #7585 15 June 1943.  An answer to #7377 which had been sent in by EPO. Hawkins, Howard, Smith, Craig, Taliaferro, Hayden, Long, Long, Simpson, Prichett, McDonald, Randle, Ellis, Casel; England, Va., No. Car., Ga.

 

"Philemon Hawkins (b. 1695, England) emigrated to America with wife, Eleanor (Howard); to Virginia in the neighborhood of Todd's Bridge, near relatives who had preceded him.  (Such is the record of tradition familiar to descendants.)  The Reg. Land Office, Richmond, Va., shows Philemon had land granted him in King William Co.: 2 patents in 1719 and 2 in 1725 in that part which is now King and Queen Co.  Todd's Bridge was in King and Queen over the Matapony River.  The probabilities are that John Hawkins of King William was the relative who had preceded the immigrant in 1714. Philemon d. 1725, and ca 1735, his widow and their children, Philemon, John and Anna, moved to No. Car. where many of their desc. now live."

 

"Philemon Hawkins emigrated to the colonies along with five brothers...Nicholas, Joseph, John, Lieu Dolphus and another whose name is unknown"

Notes for Anne Eleanor Howard:

Anne Eleanor Howard was the daughter of Capt. Howard of Plymouth, England.  The family of Howard in England is a prominent one, including Sir Thomas Howard, who commanded the Armada and who recommended that Philemon Hawkins' ancestor, Sir John Hawkins, get knighted after that victory.  His descendants included two of the wives of Henry VIII of England, and his family is in my file, though no link has been established to Anne Eleanor.  I am related to him as a cousin on another line.  The possible naval family connection has me interested in pursuing this, though!

She moved from Virginia to North Carolina after the death of her husband, and married an (unknown) Irishman.  Anyone who can identify him, please let me know!!!

      88.  John H.8 Hawkins (<Unknown>7, <Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born Bet. 1669 - 1680, and died Abt. 1742 in Prince William Co., VA.  He married Mary Long 1706 in Botetourt Co., VA, daughter of John Long.  She was born Abt. 1681 in Orange Co., VA, and died in VA.

 

Notes for John H. Hawkins:

[There was another John Hawkins who died testate in Essex Co., VA in 1726; his will remains of record & he left a family.  This John was a son of Capt. Thomas Hawkins who had a land patent 1666 at the falls of the Rappahannock River.  They were contemporaries]

 

Was he born in Slapton, Devonshire?  Did he marry (first) (Unknown) Johnson bef 1699 in England?  Did he die in St. George's Par., Spotsylvania Co., VA?

 

A grant of land was made to John Hawkins of King William Co., VA in 1731, and in Deed Book A, p.136, Spotsylvania Co., VA recorded of a Deed to him of four hundred acres of land on the Pamunky on both sides of the mouth of Terry's Run, or Gigging River.  He is mentioned as recently deceased, in Deed Book D, p. 17, Spotsylvania County, November 16th, 1742, where it appears that his wife's name was Mary.

 

"A certain John Hawkins of King William Co. died there testate by 1727; his will was recorded there but it is now lost, but there are recitations to it in the Spots Co. records; his wife was Mary ____ (some say Long, how is that proven?) - The records prove that John & Mary had at least 5 children:

Capt. Joseph Hawkins, eldest son & heir of his father, and of age when he died, lived in Hanover & Spots. Cos. and died testate in Spots. Co 1769, leaving will mentioning wife Jane & Children John, Joseph, Lucy & Sarah Hawkins.  [beleived to the the Rev. Commissary]

Capt. Philemon (d 1779) died testate in Spots. Co. he married by 1743 Sarah Smith

Elizabeth Hawkins m George Smith

Mary Hawkins m Taliaferro Craig, Sr.

Phebe Hawkins m between 1740-1747 Stephen Smith of Louisa Co., VA.  Maj. Charles Smith by will proved in Louisa in 1768 he appointed John Hawkins and Patrick Henry Jr. executors.  The papers in a suit over the estate of Maj. Smith say that John Hawkins of Hanover Co., the Rev. Commissary, acted but Patrick Henry Jr. refused to act as an executor.  The papers say that the said John Hawkins died during the Rev. War & that shortly after (or about) 1800 his widow Mary Hawkins moved to Ky."

note: John Martin's wife and Delia Martin Hawkins' sister-in-law Rachel is often shown to be Rachel Hawkins.  She does not appear in recorded family histories of Philemon Hawkins.  Who was she?  Phoebe Terrell was her daughter, the wife of Hezekiah Terrell.

 

Virkus Compendium, Vol. II p. 286 indicates that this Philemon Hawkins had a daughter, Mary Hawkins, who married John Downey.

Abt. 1735 moved from Virginia to North Carolina.

Did this couple have a son, Isham Hawkins, who had a grandson named Wyatt Hawkins?  Did they have a son, Benjamin Hawkins, who married Phoebe Jones?

 

It appears that they had a daughter Sarah Hawkins who married William Caller, son of Robert Caller, from this record:

Notes for Jane Nicholas:

[If the following will is for this Jane Hawkins why is daughter Mildred not mentioned in her husband's will some 21 years earlier?  It appears that this Jane only mentions her daughter Mildred, because Mildred was separated from her husband.  Her other children could have been already well taken care of.  A neice of Jane Nichols' husband was named "Franky (Hawkins) Thomas" and a daughter of this Jane was "Mildred (Hawkins) Thomas."]

Notes for Philemon Hawkins:

Did he marry Sarah Smith and Susannah Smith?

 

"Philemon Hawkins, Gentleman, commissioned to be Captain of a Company of Foot; took the oath February 5th, 1750.

"It was the custom in Virginia to divide each County into Military Districts, each District raising a Company.  The entire fource of the County being under the command of a Colonel.

"Commencing July 21st, 1755, he was enrolled as Captain in the Second Virginia Regiment commanded by Col. William Byrd, in the war between Great Posetam and France, in 1780.  His heirs were granted a warrant by the State of Virginia for 3,000 acres of land for his services as Captain.  This warrant, according to Kentucky records, was entered by Elijah Craig.  Any female descendant of Philemon Hawkins is entitled to membership in The Society of Colonial Dames.  Philemon Hawkins, as the most distinguished of his family ni those early days, is entitled to be honored by those of his blood by perpetuating the name of Philemon through future generations.  The name seems to have been in the family in the old country.  Maryland records show a Philemon Lloyd Hawkins as an emigrant from Wales."  Gen. John P. Hawkins - Reminiscences, p.13

 

Orange Co Deed Book #9, p. 3 23 Sept 1743:

Philemon Hawkins & Sarah, his wife, of Spots Co. to Charles Smith, alias Charles noblet of St. Martens Parish, Louisa Co., VA

Reciting the conveyance of 500 A being 1/2 of a patent granted to Samuel Smith & which was given to the sd. Charles, his son, by his last will which said last will of the sd. Samuel Smith directed a division among his children etc; but the will was given unto the care of Stephen Smith from whom it was stolen or destroyed which occasions the sd. Philemon Hawkins & Sarah, his wife, to have their right to all the estate of Samuel Smith, deceased, as the sd Sarah was the only child to survive the sd. Samuel Smith "that was born in wedlock."

 

[Other deeds, evidences etc. show that Samuel Smith's declared heir at law was only Sarah, wife of P. Hawkins but that he acknowledged the sd. Geo. Smith alias Noblet & Chas Smith alias Noblet to be his children & the deeds show they were born out of wedlock.  Charles rose to a place of prominence in Louisa Co.; ... They dropped the "alias Noblet" & took the name of Smith.]

 

Philemon Hawkins' will is Recorded in Book 2, Page 334, Spotsylvania County, May 6th, 1779.

Deposition of Nathan Hawkins, aged 74, taken before George Adams and Joseph Kennedy, Justices of the Peace; was present about thirty-one or thirty-two years ago in Spotsylvania County, Virginia when John Hawkins married Elizabeth Ellis, daughter of William Ellis, of Spotsylvania.  William told John that for his marrying his daughter, he would buy and give him (John) two good negroes and he should have equal share with his other children at his death ; after they were married two negro girls came to the door and Mr. Ellis informed John he might have his choice.  Mrs. Ellis answered No, she would not part with either of the girls; she intended one for a milkmaid and the other for a washmaid, but that he might have Millie, a young gir.  John, after some conversation, said it was very little odd which of the girls he had; although she was the smallest she might soon grow up.  Upon which Mr. Ellis gave John Hawkins the girl, and about four days after Millie was moved to John Hawkins' and there remained until after the decease of said Hawkins.  In the administration of his estate Millie was appraised in said estate and the relict had her thirds allotted to her; that her father, Mr. Ellis, wished Millie not to be included in the appraisal but the widow excepted against it and said Millie was John Hawkins' and should be in the appraisal and his children should not be wronged, and her father agreed to it.

Mr. Ellis was appointed Guardian and hired Millie with the other negroes for the benefit of the orphans.  Some time after the widow married Robert Collins who brought suit against heirs of said Hawkins for siad Millie but how it came out of the Court this deponent knoweth not.  The matter was submitted to arbitration of Joseph Brook, Edward Hardin and Thomas Colson, Justices of the Peace for Spotsylvania County, and the award was in favor of the orphans; but depondent further sayeth, Robert Collins said in his hearing he would give his bond to stand to the award, and further sayeth not.  (Dated) July 42,1790; Witnesses ...

They settled on Little River in Hanover County, about 40 miles northwest of Richmond."  It seems unlikely he was born as early as 1680, but if an immigration record exists, he is likely linked to the wrong parents.

Notes for Delia Hawkins:

Delia has a sister, Frances, who more likely is called "Fanny."  The book "Southern Kith and Kin" indicates that Leonard married Fannie Hawkins, daughter of Philemon Hawkins.  As that Frances married in 1772, and this one probably died before the marriage to Susannah Martin Goodloe (who MAY be descended from Zachariah Martin) in 1766, the book may be wrong.

Delia died without any children.

17 Nov 1760 was listed as a wedding date - I do not recall where I found it, but based on Delia's probable birth date, this is not possible.

 

Notes for Leonard Henley Bullock:

Leonard Bullock later married Susannah (Martin) Goodloe.

 

He was involved in, and mentioned in, the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals which created the (short-lived) colony of Transylvania.

Burial: Creek Agency, GA

 

Notes for Lavinia Downs:

Was she ... or wasn't she ...?  The Queen of Tuckabatchie?

 

There is evidence in the Moravian Diaries that Lavinia indicated she was white (See her father's record).  Suspicion that she was Creek has been voiced since shortly after her death, including comments such as "there is no truth to the rumor that she was an Indian."  However: " ... confirmation that Lavina Downs was Creek came from the Chehaws who showed Janice [Woods Windle] that the marriage of Hawkins and Downs is recorded in the official Marriages of the Muskogee."

http://www.rootsweb.com/~gajones/hawkins.htm

 

Lavinia Downs is thought by many family members to be of the Ocmulgee Creek Nation, and they insist she was first the wife of Chief Long Side of Tuckabatchie (Tookautchee).  He was killed in a raid, and she was widowed with a young son, Silas.  Her son Silas is said to have been born in 1792 which conflicts with Lavinia's reported birthdate of 10 May 1781.  The birthdate of her presumed son Silas Downs, however, would have come at age 10 or 11, if both birthdates are reported correctly.

 

Lavinia lived at the Creek agency (in Crawford Co., GA) with her husband, Col. Benjamin Hawkins until his death.  At her death, over a decade later, she was still living in Crawford County.  One of her daughters was buried in Roberta, the county seat, and records from a lawsuit / complaint indicate that this daughter, Jeffersonia, lived with Lavinia.  Lavinia was buried at Ft. Hawkins, and her grave is not (obviously) marked.  Her obituary was carried in the Milledgeville paper, as that town was (then) a major center and the one-time state capital.

 

Page 60 of the Crawford County Guardian Bonds Book "A" states that Richard W. Ellis was appointed adminsitrator of her estate on March 3, 1834.  Hiram Troutman and Bryan Bateman acted as security and a bond of $500 was posted.  The minimal bond indicates that Pound was correct in stating that she lost most of her inheritance from Benjamin.  Hiram Troutman was the father of Joanna Troutman who sewed the famous flag carried into the Texas Revolution by the Georgia volunteers.

 

If Lavinia was Creek, that fact was kept secret throughout the part of the family that remained in Water Valley, Mississippi after 1850.  The part of the family that moved to San Marcos kept alive this secret.  Her suspected Creek heritage is commemorated by the book "True Women" by Janice Woods Windle, which has been made into a mini-series (and slightly fictionalized by screen-writers).

Notes for John Hawkins:

"The first two are children of Margaret Jameson."

"John Hawkins emigrated to Kentucky in 1788, stopping first at Bryan's Station.  Two or three years afterward he moved to Scott County and setlted on a farm near Georgetown, on the Frankfort road, in the neighborhood of the "Great Crossing" of the Elkhorn.  He and his wife, Sarah, are buried on the farm.  The large stone house built by him is still standing; an addition of brick is built in front of it, so that it is not visible from the road.  The graves are in an enclosure, - a stone wall -- about fifty yards to the rear of the house.  The farm was purchased by him from Patrick  Henry.  They were members of the "Great Crossing" Baptist Church.  I have no record that would identify this John Hawkins as a soldier of the Revolution, but my grandfather Jameson Hawkins always said that his father bore an honorable part therein; that he was an office, and that on one occasion, in a fight in the woods, he lost an epaulette.  My grandfather was fifteen years old at the close of the War, and had intimate personal relations with his father for more than twenty years after the close, and as he was a person of unusual intelligence and strict veracity, there is every reason to believe his statement as true, and as according to his own knowledge."

      215.  Mildred10 Hawkins (John9, William8, <Unknown>7, <Unknown>6, John Sidney5, Richard4, John3, William2, John1) was born 02 Jan 1763 in VA, and died 29 May 1833 in Carroll Co., KY.  She married Gen. Percival Butler 1784 in KY, son of Thomas Butler and Eleanor Parker.  He was born 04 Apr 1760 in Carlisle, Cumberland, PA.

 

Notes for Gen. Percival Butler:

Percival was the fourth son of Thomas and Eleanor Parker Butler. He was born April 4, 1760, at Carlisle, Pa.  His father was born in 1720 in the County of Wicklow, Ireland, and his mother was a native of Wexford County, Ireland. 

A prosperous landowner, Thomas Butler fled Ireland after a rebellion in the 1740s, soon after his land and title were forfeited to the Crown.

In America, the father and sons were already opportunely engaged in the gunsmithing trade when the Revolution became war. When the “shot heard ‘round the world” was fired at Lexington, there were five Butler sons, one of which was our Percival Butler. 

All became commissioned officers in the Continental Army. Before the end, even old Thomas took his rifle down and went to join them, wife Eleanor exclaiming, "Let him go! I can get along without him!"

This was the family to whose health George Washington drank, and whom Lafayette boasted, "When I wanted a thing well done, I had a Butler do it."

When the British surrendered at the Battle of Yorktown, the French general presented his sword to his young aid Percival Butler, barely 20 but already veteran of many battles, including Monmouth (under Mad Anthony Wayne) and Valley Forge.

Percival married Mildred Hawkins after migrating to Kentucky in 1784. Butler’s military reputation must have preceded him, for in the year of statehood (1792) he was named Adjutant General of Kentucky, a post he retained until 1817 when Legislature would have required him to leave Port William (later Carrollton) and reside in Frankfort.

In 1796, he acquired land near Port William Settlement, which was then little more than a blockhouse built for defense against Indians. In 1797, Percival, his wife Mildred and family settled on land that is now Gen. Butler State Resort Park. The land near the Butler-Turpin Historic House and cemetery is the portion of the park that was once the Butler Family Farm where Percival built a two-story log house. 

According to early documentation, the Butlers’ first residence was located in the settlement of Port William. The settlement community was located near the confluence of the Kentucky and Ohio rivers. It was during this time their log house was being built. 

The duties of Adjutant General were conducted from the log house. Percival’s most important mission in the position was Gen. Hopkin’s campaign during the War of 1812. In addition to the position of Adjutant General, Percival was also the first “clerk of the courts” of Port William and retained that position until his death.

His position allowed Mildred Hawkins the opportunity to socialize with wealthy and powerful families of Lexington, then part of Jessamine County. Moving from the stimulating political circles and social atmosphere of Lexington to the tiny community of Port William must have been quite an adjustment for her. Suddenly, she was thrust into a frontier existence. 

At the time, the location for her new home was Indian hunting ground. Although she probably wore her work clothes more often in those early days than her fine dresses, it is evident that she still placed great emphasis on social graces. During an archaeological dig at the site of the original Butler log house, items excavated included modest pieces of yellow-banded ware and salt glazed pottery, but also fine china such as flow blue, transferware and hand-painted porcelain.

Gen. Pierce Percival Butler, soldier, patriot, Kentucky’s first Adjutant General and who helped found Carrollton’s Port William, brought with him an almost chivalric code of honor, culture and patriotism.

     

Children of Mildred Hawkins and Percival Butler are:

        563            i.    Eleanor11 Butler, born 07 May 1787; died 20 May 1844.

        564           ii.    Thomas Langford Butler, born 1789; died 21 Oct 1880.  He married Sarah Hawkins; born Abt. 1775 in VA.

        565          iii.    Gen. William Orlando Butler, born 19 Apr 1791 in Carrollton, Carroll, KY; died 06 Aug 1880 in Carrollton, Carroll, KY.  He married Elizabeth Todd; born 02 Jan 1796; died Bet. 09 - 16 Apr 1863.

From Thomas Marshall Green, "Historic Families of Kentucky," originally published Cincinnati, 1889, reprinted for Clearfield Co. by Genealogical Publishing Co, Baltimore, Md., 1996, p. 265-266:

"In the War of 1812 he was among the first to volunteer as a private in Hart's company, and went immediately to the front to the relief of Fort Wayne. In that second struggle for independence, he was greatly distinguished. He was soon promoted to ensign in the Seventeenth Regular Infantry. In both battles of the Raisin, his daring and self-devotion wer pre-eminently consipicuous; in the fight on the 22d of January, 1813, he was wounded and captured. In the attack at Pensacola, he was captain of the Forty-fourth Infantry. He was at the battle of New Orleans on December 13, 1814, as well as in that of January 8, 1815. There a number of British sharpshooters were covered by a large sugar-house, and Captain Butler volunteered to go alone and burn it. He had succeeded in his mission when a number of British soldiers sprang from their places of concealment with their rifles leveled at his head. He laughed, threw his sword among the sugar-stalks, crying out, 'I will be prisoner to the man who gets my sword;' and while the men were scrambling for the weapon, he jumped from the blazing building and effected his escape. Of his conduct in these battles, General Jackson reported that 'he displayed the heroic chivalry and calmness of judgment in the midst of danger which distinguished the valuable officer in the hour of battle.' For his gallantry in the field, he was brevetted major. In 1816, '17, he was Jackson's aide; then resigned, and commenced the practice of the law at Carrollton, and was immediately sent to the legislature from Gallatin county, 1817-18. He represented his district in Congress, 1839-43, and refused to be a candidate for a third term. In 1844, he was the Democratic candidate against Owsley for governor, and cut down the Whig majority from 20,000 to 4,624. June, 1846, he was appointed major-general of volunteers, and went to the assistance of Taylor in Mexico. At Monterey, he was second in command, and acted an important part in the capture of that stronghold. It was he who gave the order for the charge which was led by Aleck McClung with the Mississippi company of the brave Captain Willis. In the storming of the ramparts, General Butler was severly wounded. He succeeded General Scott as commander-in-chief of the army, which position he retained until the treaty of peace. In 1848, he was the Democratic candidate for vice-president on the ticket with Lewis Cass. In 1861, he was a member of the peace conference. He died in 1881, in his ninety-first year. General Butler married Eliza, daughter of General Robert Todd; they had no issue."

 

During the Civil War, his family were considered Union sympathizers.

 

General Butler died in 1880 at the age of 90. The general is honored in his home state by a state park named for him, as well as counties and communities across the country.

 

He declined an appointment to become the first territorial governor of Nebraska. 

 

The ticket on which he ran, with Lewis Cass, garnered 1,220,544 (42.5%) votes and 127 electoral votes compared to Zachary Taylor / Millard Fillmore's 1,360,099 (47.3%)  and 163 electoral votes.
