Hawkins, William (c.1519–1589), merchant and sea captain, was the elder of two sons of William Hawkins (b. before 1490, d. 1554/5), merchant and MP, and his wife, Joan, only child of Roger Trelawny, of Brightor, Cornwall, the older brother of John Hawkins.

By his first wife, whose identity is unknown, Hawkins had a son, William Hawkins, and three daughters. His second wife was Mary, daughter of John Halse, of Efford, Devon, with whom he had four sons and three daughters; after his death she married Sir Warwick Hele, of Wembury, Devon.
