|The Gilbert /
I am interested in the 'Gilbert/Hayne' branch of Admiral Sir John Hawkins' tree which goes as follows:
Sir John Hawkins=Katherine Gonson
If your tree includes this branch I would be most interested to hear from you;
John Gilbert Hayne Hawkins
It seems likely that the John referred to here is is John Gilbert Hayne Hawkins, b. 1771, who would have been about 43 years old on discharge in 1814, and perhaps by 1830, when this oath is sworn, aged 59 is thinking about his Navy pension.
|The Hawkins Welbank
Richard Welbank marries Mary Ann Hawkins in 1852.
