"Joseph Hawley"
"Morgan Elizabeth King's 13th Great-Grandfather"

JOSEPH HAWLEY of Parwich, in Derbyshire, about nine miles northwest of Old Derby, and four miles from Ashbourne, came to America in 1629 or 1630. That he had a homestead in England is indicated by his will in which he says, "I give to my sonn Samuel Hawley all my lands and buildings in Parwidge in Darbyshere in Old England, to him, his heirs and assigns."

Joseph Hawley was born in 1603, and died May 20, 1690. He was a "yoeman"; he was the first town recorder at Stratford, Connecticut, and wrote the earliest land records that are still in existence in Stratford; in the tax list of the town in 1671 his tax was next to the largest; he was Town Clerk or "Recorder" from 1650 to 1666; was Treasurer of Stratford; was chosen by the town several years to "keep an ordinary"; served on committees to survey lands and adjust boundaries; in 1687 was on a committee to draft a "Patent" for the town; was elected twenty-nine times a Deputy to the General Assembly of Connecticut(*) (election twice a year) serving from 1665 to 1687; was appointed "Commissioner" for Stratford; and held church offices.

In 1646 he married Katharine Birdsey who died June 25, 1692. Births of all their children except Samuel are entered on Stratford records.

NOTE:--A granite memorial to Joseph Hawley, pioneer ancestor, was erected in the Congregational cemetery at Stratford in 1924 by the Society of the Hawley Family.

(*)During eighty consecutive years, four members of the Hawley family--Joseph, Sr., his sons Samuel and John, and his grandson Capt. Joseph--were elected seventy times to the Connecticut Legislature.

From "The Descendants of Captain Thomas Carter", pg. 112

The Hawley family has been fully written up by Mr. Elias Hawley in a large tome, "The Hawley Record." The English ancestry of this family is expounded back to 1006 A. D., with illustrations and coats-of-arms. The first to come to America was Mr. Joseph Hawley, who resided at Stratford, Connecticut, as early as 1629. He was the first town recorder of that place as well as magistrate. He owned several thousand acres of land in and around Stratford, and was returned to the General Assembly as a Deputy twenty-nine times between the years 1658-1687. His wife was Katharine Birdseye. Their cldest son, Samuel Hawley, was also a large land owner and farmer, and succeeded his father as a member of the General Assembly, being returned twenty-three times. He was a first settler of the town of Derby. He was twice married, his first wife, Mary, being a granddaughter of Governor Welles; and the second wife, Patience (widow of Lieut. John Hubbell), was a daughter of Isaac Nicholls, and granddaughter of Sergeant Francis Nicholls, through whom this family claims descent from King Robert Bruce. (See "Sergeant Francis Nicholls," by Walter Nicholls).

From "Hughes and Allied Families", pg. 191-192:

Joseph, who was born in the Parish of Derbyshire, England, and died at Stratford, Connecticut, in 1690. According to some accounts Joseph Hawley came to this country in 1629, and according to others in 1640. The family settled in this country at Scituate, Massachusetts, and afterwards moved to Stratford, Connecticut.

From "Records of the Guthrie Family", pg. 5:

Mary Hawley Coe, died Sept, 9, 1731. She was the daughter of Joseph and Catherine (Birdseye) Hawley. Joseph Hawley, grand-father of Abigail (Coe) Guthrie, on her maternal side was Deputy to the General Assembly of Connecticut for Stratford, from 1665 to 1689. Was Town Clerk and Recorder sixteen years, and Treasurer of the town. He was Deacon of the First Congregational church. Joseph Hawley was born in Derbyshire in 1603, and died in Stratford, Conn., in 1690.

From "Reverend John Beach and John Sanford and Their Descendants", pg. 168:

Dea. John Birdsey came from Reading, Berkshire, England, to America in 1636, and to Wethersfield, Conn., where he married Phillipa, daughter of the Rev. Henry Smith and sister to Dorothy Smith, who married John Blakeman of Stratford, son of the Rev. Adam Blakeman. Tradition says Joseph Hawley, the first at Stratford, married a Birdsey at Wethersfield, Conn., and if so it was most probably a sister of this John Birdsey.

From "Reverend John Beach and John Sanford and Their Descendants", pg. 169:

Richard Booth, the progenitor of the Booth family of Fairfield County, Conn.... married Elizabeth, sister of Captain Joseph Hawley, who was the first town clerk of Stratford, and settled in Stratford in 1640.

From "Reverend John Beach and John Sanford and Their Descendants", pg. 188-189:

The Hawleys, according to their own account of themselves, came from Parvidge, Derbyshire, in Old England, now called Parwich ("Parritch"), about nine miles from Derby and four from Ashbourne, the market town. Mr. Joseph Hawley came to America about 1629-30, but just where he located previous to our meeting him in Stratford in 1650 has not been revealed. His brother Thomas was in Roxbury, Mass., as early as 1639. Joseph purchased land in Stratford in 1650, was already married and had a son Daniel, born in 1647-8. Seven sons and three daughters are entered in the Stratford records [leaving out Samuel]. He was also one of the original proprietors of Newtown. Samuel Hawley Junr, in whom we are more interested, married Bethia Boothe, daughter of Ephraim; he and his wife were second cousins, which anyone can discover by a sufficiently elaborate study of the "Hawley Record." This was the Saml Hawley who was one of the three purchasers of Newtown. The story of their first coming is traditional only, and not recorded. It is said they rode to the top of a high hill, at sunset, and seeing an impossible dip before them, stopped there and made their first settlement, calling it "Land's end." Hawley, Junos, and Bush were the historic three who made that wonderful bargain of coats, etc., with the Indians.

From "Newtown's History and Historian, Ezra Levan Johnson", pg. 369:

Joseph Hawley b. 1603, at Derbyshire, England, came to America, 1629, later came to Stratford, d. 1690.

From "Powers-Banks Ancestry", pg. 209:

The first of the name in this country were two brothers, Thomas and Joseph, from Parwich, Derby. Joseph was born about 1603, died 20 May, 1690. He came to America about 1629 or 1630, but first appears on the Stratford records in 1650. He was a deputy in 1665 and often down to 1687. In 1675 he was a quartermaster to collect wheat for the army against the Indians. He married his second wife, Katherine Birdseye, in 1646. His will, dated 1689, mentions children: Samuel, born 1647; Joseph, Elizabeth, Ebenezer, Hannah, Ephraim, John, Mary.

From "Powers-Banks Ancestry", pg. 210:

Deacon Joseph Birdseye, in Wethersfield as early as 1636, came from Reading, Berks, England. Tradition says that Katherine, the wife of Joseph Hawley, was daughter to Edward, the brother of Joseph Birdseye, who resided in New Haven and Wethersfield.

From "Abridged Compendium", pg. 3489

HAWLEY, Joseph (1603-90), from Eng., 1639 was at Stratford, Conn.; dep Gen. Ct., 1665-87.

From "Lineage of Albert L Johnson", pg. 9:

feb. 29: 1671 Mr. joseph hawley hath his fourth Division on Sentanal Hill Nere Jerymiah johnsons field.

Lieut. Thomas HAWLEY was born Abt. 1609 and died Apr. 21, 1676. He married Dorothy HARBOTTLE.
Child of Thomas Hawley and Dorothy Harbottle is:
Elizabeth HAWLEY b. Abt. 1656, d. Dec. 7, 1719; m. Edward DORR (as his first wife)

Notes: From "Powers-Banks Ancestry", pg. 209:

The Hawleys appear to have been substantial and influential people. The immigrant Thomas had a son, Captain Joseph, who in turn was father to the Rev. Thomas Hawley of Ridgefield, the husband of Abigail, daughter to Deputy-Governor Nathan Gold. Other Hawleys were prominent in the Connecticut Valley.

Memorandum, John Hawley shall have Uriah Mills the remainder of his time and fulfil his indentures.

Signed and Sealed in the presence of Joseph Curtis, Recorder.


Notes: There are several things worth noting about Joseph's will. One of course is that he named the property in England from which it has been assumed that he orginated. Another is that this property being located in England, would be subject to the English rule of primogeniture, which assured that real property would be inherited by the eldest son. This rule was not part of the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, which permitted the inheritance of real property to be governed by a will. So, Joseph left his eldest son, Samuel, the English property in compliance with English law, made specific bequests of other real property located in Connecticut, and then split the balance among all three named sons, equally.

Charles family history - Journey to the New World

In the county of Devon in England there lived a man by the name of John Charles. His residence was in the town of Malborough located in the southern area of the county, though he traveled throughout the county of Devon. Through the parish records we find he and wife Agnes Christian had the following children: Humphrey christened in 1578 at Shebbear; Robert christened in 1582 also at Shebbear; Agnes
christened in 1583 at Malborough; Ann christened in 1585 at Shebbear; William christened September 11, 1583 at Malborough and died January 8, 1649 in Salcombe, Devon County, England; Phillip and Edward christened in 1594 at Plymouth; Henry christened in 1595 at Dartmouth; Tomasina christened in 1596 at Plymouth; Joan christened in 1600 at Malborough.

William eventually married Abigail _______ about 1605 and moved to Sandford a town located in the middle of Devonshire County. There the following children were born; Abigail in 1606 who later married John Moss; John christened on April 13, 1608 who later married Sarah Moss; Phillip christened on January 20, 1610; Margaret christened on December 25, 1614; Elnour christened in September of 1618. William's first wife Abigail died about 1618. William married Joan Perrot January 15, 1619 in Malborough, Devon County. Joan was born August 24, 1600 and died May 29, 1657 in Salcombe, Devon County. William and Joan had 4 children. Joan boar October 6, 1622 in Malborough, Devon County; Robert born march 9, 1625 in Tiverton, Devon County, Mary born May 1 1629 in Exeter, Devon County (this is the lady who later married martin Tichenor); and Liver born February 2, 1630 in Tiverton, Devon County.

Sandford is a small village in the vale of the Creedy River. There are about 7770 acres of fertile land in the parish which would indicate that William was farmer before he moved his family to county seat of Exeter. Farming was obviously not a vocation that John wanted as he left with his two sisters early on to travel to London. This is probably where he met up with John Moss as Moss was from the county of Manchester. Thought it has been a common belief that John married before going to American and that he had a daughter, Mary, who married Martin Tichenor, the author of the book Freedom's Call a history of the Charles-Weeks family by Nancy J. Wach (Nancy Wach is a direct descendent of John Charles and has done considerable research on the Charles family), believes that John with his sisters Abigail and Mary traveled to London and that they along with John Moss, Sarah Moss Geer and her husband John set sail on the same ship fro the New World.

They boarded a ship that was possibly named the 'Winterhee' and sailed the Atlantic. A storm must have blown them off course and ship was wrecked off the island of Barbados. John Geer, husband of Sarah (Moss) was lost at sea. Eventually the survivors were transported to Charlestown in Massachusetts.

After arriving in Charlestown, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, John Charles courted Sarah Geer. They eventually married June 23, 1636 in Charlestown. Their first daughter, Sarah, was born in Charlestown in October of 1637. John Moss married Abigail Charles January 18, 1637 probably at Suffolk County, Massachusetts,

With the outbreak of disease in Charlestown and surrounding areas, John and Sarah Charles, Joan and Abigail Moss, and Mary Charles then eight year of age along with many others decided to move to Connecticut. By 1641 they were in New Haven, Connecticut.

Below is a copy of a lawsuit in which John Charles was defendant

RETURN TRIPS: Returned to England permanently 1644
OCCUPATION: Artist (i.e., surveyor).
CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: Admitted to Charlestown church on the 30th day of a month late in 1633, possibly December [ChChR 8].
FREEMAN: 3 September 1634 [MBCR 1:369].
EDUCATION: His letters to the Winthrops, his term as town clerk, and his skill as a surveyor all indicate that Benjamin Hubbard was very well educated.
OFFICES: Clerk of the writs for Charlestown, 1641 [MBCR 1:345].
ESTATE: On 26 October 1635 "Mr. Benia[min] Hubberd was granted the houseplot next Geo[rge] Felch which John Charles should have had & left it" [Ch TR 17]. Allotted one share of hayground in 1635, which was increased to two shares [ChTR 19, 20]. His hayground proportion in 1637 was 2* [ChTR 32]. In 1637 he held five acres Mystic Side, and in the Mystic Side allotments of 23 April 1638 he had parcels of ten,
twenty-five and five acres [ChTR 36].

At the New Haven court of 5 January 1646/7 a lengthy case was heard in which Mr. Thomas Evance sued John Charles for goods lost from and damage done to a vessel which belonged to Evance, and which was to sail from New Haven to Guilford and Saybrook and back, with Charles as master. The plaintiff stated that "he at first intended & appointed Sergeant Jefferies to go master of the said vessel or shallop for this voyage ... but Mr. Crayne, Mr. Wackman & Mr. Atwater, intrusted as feoffees for the building of a ship at New Haven, desired that Sergeant Jefferies might be spared to go to the Massachusetts about rigging & other occasions concerning the said ship" [NHCR 1:283].

As it turned out Jeffreys did not make the trip to Massachusetts Bay, and was free to master the vessel of Evance, but when he appeared at dockside he found Charles in charge. Charles proceeded on the voyage, resulting in the damage that was the basis of the lawsuit, and Jeffreys twice gave testimony, once as to the specific point of whether he thought he or Charles was to be master of the vessel for this voyage, and then as an expert on what a skilled master might have done to avoid the loss of goods and the damage to the boat [NHCR 1:285, 289]. The court found in favor of Evance.

Below is an inventory Deed

On 3 June 1685, an inventory of the land held by Henry Glover in New Haven was entered, listing the following parcels: "one house lot containing half an acre and twenty rods ... which at first belonged to James Pruden deceased ... with the dwelling house, barn and other buildings standing on the said home lot"; "one parcel of land being in the quarter commonly called Mr. Goodyear's quarter containing in quantity nine acres"; "one parcel containing twelve acres ... lying in the aforesaid Goodyear's quarter"; "one parcel lying on the west side within the first division of the said Goodyear's quarter containing six acres"; "one parcel lying in the second division on the west side of the abovesaid quarter which belonged to the lots of Bayly and Stonnell containing 104 acres"; "three parcels of land in the third division, one of them bought of William Pringle"; "one parcel of meadow containing four acres, two of which belonged to the allotment of the aforesaid James Pruden and the other bought of Mr. John Wakeman deceased"; "one parcel of land containing 100 acres being in the second division of the Hertfordshire quarter"; "one parcel of land in the
second division of the Suburbs Quarter containing eighteen acres, which at first belonged to John Charles deceased and passed from him to Martin Tichenor, and by the said Tichenor deeded to the said Glover"; "one parcel of meadow land containing three acres"; "one parcel of land in the neck containing two acres and a half"; "several parcels of land bought of Mr. Samuel Wakeman and Mr. Samuel Kitchell"; "one parcel of meadow land containing seventeen acres and one quarter"; "one parcel of upland containing forty-two acres [and] one quarter ... of the first division land"; "one parcel of upland in the second division (bought of the said Wakeman and Kitchell)"; "one parcel in the neck ... in quantity nineteen acres and a half"; "one parcel of land in the neck upon the account of James Pruden's lot containing one acre and half"; "one parcel more in the neck containing six acres belonging to Bayly and Stonell's lots"; "one parcel in the Suburbs Quarter containing five acres"; "one parcel of land in the first division on the west side in Hertfordshire quarter upon the account of the aforesaid Pruden's lot, containing three acres and a half"; "one parcel of meadow containing five acres ... lying in the west meadow at rear of Mr. Goodyear's quarter"; "one parcel of meadow at the upper end of Malibone Cove containing three acres"; "one parcel of meadow containing three acres"; "in Solitary Cove a parcel of
meadow about two acres"; and "six acres of land in the quarter called Mr. Newman's quarter, being part of Mrs. Eldred's lot"[NHLR 1:276].

Daniel Howe was in New Haven on two occasions in 1646, but he does not seem to have lived there at that time. On 7 April 1646 "Capt. How, being then in court," testified as to the behavior of Mark Meggs [NHCR 1:239]. On 24 November 1646 "Daniel How" agree to be one of four referees in a matter pending between Mr. John Evance and John Charles, over a trading voyage in which Charles was master of a vessel owned by
Evance [NHCR 1:282].

On 18 September 1648 Aspinwall recorded that Theodore Atkinson of Boston gave a letter of attorney to Anthony Waters late of Marshfield to"ask leave &c. of Capt. Howe of the Isle of Wight alias Lieft: Gardiners Iland near Long Island" for £11 [Aspinwall 158].
