Research Notes

Email from Russ Hawton
According to your website Mary Hawton, daughter of Nicholas and Jane Hawton, was born in 1616...........but Mary Hawton is referred to in Nicholas's will of 1611...............?
You also refer to John and Christina Hawton as being the parents of George Hawton. I would be interested in the evidence for this ( there seem to have been other John Hawtons around at the time? ), I am particularly interested in George as I am a descendant of his and have been puzzling over his origins on and off for 30 years or so!
I'm afraid I'm not in a position to send you a copy of the will, but it's contents are clear. Mary is unambiguously referred to. I suppose there could have been an earlier Mary who died?
As for George, CL Clowes of the Duchy Office noted in the 1920's that the parents of George are not clear from the Parish Register. There doesn't seem to be any indication either in what remains of the Bishop's Transcripts. George is not mentioned in any extant will that I am aware of.
If anyone can send me a transcript of the will or further evidence I will add it here
