Matthew Hawke. Born in 1610 in England. Matthew died on 11 Dec 1684 in Hingham, MA. Buried in Old burying ground, Hingham.
“Matthew, from Cambridge, England, embarked at London with his wife Margaret and servant John Fearing in the ship Diligent of Ipswich, for New England, and arrived on the 10th of Aug. 1638. Mrs. Margaret Hawke died at Hingham 18 March, 1683-84. Matthew died 11 Dec. 1684, as his gravestone says, 74 years. Will made Sept. 24 1684. Freeman May 18, 1642; was the third town clerk of Hingham; selectman 1663; also school-master 1679-1683. Resided on Main Street, Hingham Centre.”
Matthew Hawke may have been of the John Hawke family of Hingham, Norfolk. A John Hawke had sons Stephen baptized there 4 Dec 1602 and Adam 26 Jan 1605. Also a John Hawke married there 27 Jan 1612 Mary Cowper. It is unclear, however, if Matthew was a member of this family. It is also sometimes said that the John Hawks who died 30 Jun 1662 at Hadley, MA, and Adam Hawkes who died 13 Mar 1672 at Lynn, MA, were also of this family.
