The early generations of this family receive brief treatment from John Osborne Austin, The Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island; Comprising Three Generations of Settlers Who Came Before 1690 (1887; reprint, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1978), 94, and Edward H. West, The Story of Jane Hawkins, New England Historical and Genealogical Register 114 (1960): 207-11. Sketches of James Hawkins and his brother Job are in Robert Charles Anderson, George F. Sanborn Jr., and Melinde Lutz Sanborn, The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634–1635, 7 vols. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1999–2011), 3:261-70. The pre-immigration records of this family were discovered recently.

Brandon.
