Richard Hawes, ca. 1606-1656/7, of Dorchester, MA was baptized in Great Missenden, Buckhamshire, England 02 Nov 1606. At age 29, with his wife Ann and 2 children, he sailed from London on the ship Truelove to Massachusetts Bay Colony, eventually settling in Dorchester, now an area of Boston. From his son Obadiah are descended the many descendants detailed. Because of extensive early record keeping in Massachusetts, original vital records the 1600's to 2003 could be examined, providing proof of events. The availability of indexed U.S. Census from 1790 to 1930, extensive correspondence with descendants and on-line Internet data bases have provided the reader with a broad base of engaging individual facts including military service, occupation and education of higher learning, in addition to the usual birth, marriage, death and burial place. Any descendants interested joining the DAR will find numerous Revolutionary War military service records noted. Families of the Hawes women are detailed with their husband(s) and children with spouses. In addition to the city/town vital records from Massachusetts and many other states, a lengthly bibliography is included. There is an all-name index of 11, 836 entries estimated to encompass 5,500 individuals.
Some family names from the index: Baker, Clap/Clapp, Farrington, Flint, Harris, Hawes, Henry, Jones, Northrup, Pierce, Smith, Stone, Talbot, Wentworth and more.
