How do I locate this particular transcript? And what state do I start looking in?

Hello,

My ancestry (thus far) leads back to John Hawkins B. 1634 or possibly 1637 (I don't have a month/day). This guy is my brick-wall!

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hawkins-228

I've located several "online" sources that state:

"His immigration record was found on Transcript. Q:435-6 [SR 7346], MSA SC 4341-2985 confirming that he arrival was in 1658."

Here's one of the sources locations: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=141438512&ref=acom

How do I know that information is reliable? How can I locate that record myself? I simply need to know where to look in order to verify the immigration information and to verify that this John Hawkins is MY John Hawkins. :) Easier said than done, I know.

My records indicate that he was in Maryland, USA , that he DID leave a will in which my 7th great grandfather was named.

Death date: 

17 MAR 1676 • Anne Arundel, Maryland, United States

8th great-grandfather

Thanks, in advance, AKinsey

But these documents are located at the Maryland State Archives.
