{short description of image}

This picture is claimed to be of Sir John Hawkins grandchildren. It is in the possession of Quentin Johnson quentin@quican.com who says: [29.04.1998] "Finally after many attempts since I last communicated, please find attached a gif file of a painting in my possession from my late uncle's estate. His name was John Hawkins and he had two paintings of descendants of Sir John Hawkins. This picture was assessed as being painted in about 1625 and the subjects are believed to be the grandchildren of Sir John Hawkins. What is unusual about the picture is the subject matter. Because of high childhood mortality rates in that period, it is unusual to have a portrait of children. The other feature is the eldest boy on the left hand side. His right arm appears to be crippled. The painting is in my house."

The signatures of William, Sir John and Sir Richard Hawkins.
