The Hawkins family of Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire
The Hawkins family first appear in Great Paxton, Huntingdonshire (as it was then) in 1797 when Westly Hawkins and his wife Sarah take their son John to be baptised at the parish church.
By 1815, John reappears in church records when he marries Jane Dunham from Witchford, at Witcham parish church, Cambridgeshire. It is here in Witcham that the couple remain and settle down to start a family of eight children, one of whom is named 'Wesley' after his grandfather.
In November 1844, their daughter Mary Hawkins is noted in the Witcham parish burial register as having 'burnt to death in the absence of her mother'. It notes that the Coroner ordered her burial. This tragic insight into Mary's short life which ended at 9 years and 9 months, needs further research.
