      Anne Stinson: This is what I have written about John Hawkins (above) who was my ancestor:


      John Hawkins was transported to Maryland in 1666 with his father, Henry Hawkins, and his mother, Eleanor Hawkins. In 1681, John Hawkins was on the Tax List for Charles County, Maryland, being assessed for 1800 lbs tobacco - a relatively large amount.
      In 1689, John Hawkins, Gent., signed "Declaration of Remonstrance" to curb rumors that Papists had leagued with the Indians to cut off Protestants in the Province. His daughter's father-in-law, John Bayne, also, signed the declaration that the rumors were not true.
      In 1689, John Hawkins along with others addressed King William and Queen Mary on behalf of the Protestants of Calvert County, Maryland: " --wee your Majties loyall and dutiful Protestant Subjects in these our Addresses humbly crave by your Majties care and prudence to be freed and enlarged, & that the Government together with your Majesties favour, and a lasting Settlement may be again restored to the Rt Honble the Lord Baltemore - -" (Lord Baltimore favored religious freedom).
      An inventory of John Hawkins' estate in Prince George County, March 26, 1707, indicated that his wife was deceased. The estate received payment from Walter Bayne (John's son-in-law). Henry Hawkins (John's brother) and Hickford Leman were the administrators.
      The will of Henry Hawkins, John Hawkins' father, left 100 acres called "Goat's Lodge", "Hawkins Purchase" (formerly called "Fair Fountain" which was bought of Capt Josias Fendall who took the office of Governor of MD in 1658), and land formerly in Charles Co near Piscataway and now in Prince George's Co called "Hawkins Lott" to John Hawkins in 1698.
      In June, 1696, There was an Indenture from John Hawkins, Planter,
      to Thomas Hutchison for "The Two Friends" formerly in St. Marys Co. for John Hawkins and Elizabeth Hawkins.
      In 1696/97 John Hawkins, his brother, Henry, William Barton, Phillip Hoskins and John Hanson were Vestrymen in the Port Tobacco Parish where there were 346 taxables.
      An inventory for Jonathon Wilson, "inholder",filed 7/30/1701 in Prince George's County indicated that John Hawkins was one of a list of people who owed the inn a small amount.
      John Hawkins I was a Justice of the Peace and a Judge of the Circuit Court of Prince George's County, Maryland.
