Captain Thomas Hawkins, Sr. Thomas was a vestryman of Sittingbourne Parish, Rappahannock county, in 1665 and a justice of Rappahannock in 1670 or earlier. There are on record in Essex deeds in 1659 and 1662 from Thomas Hawkins and Mary, his wife.

His Will, dated February 8, 1675, was proved in Rappahannock county, in November, 1677. (Note: "Old Rappahannock" County was founded in 1656 from part of Lancaster County, Virginia and became extinct in 1692 when it was divided to form Essex County and Richmond County, Virginia) His legatees were his wife, Frances, his sons Thomas and John. He gave to his daughter, Elizabeth, his former wife's diamond ring and pearl necklace, and if she died, gave them to his daughter, Hannah.

The eldest son, Major Thomas Hawkins, Jr. commanded a force raised in several counties along the Rappahannock River. Major Hawkins probably died without an heir, prior to 1696. In 1696 and 1698, the lands that were patented by Captain Thomas Hawkins in 1662 and 1666 were conveyed from John Hawkins, only son and heir of Captain Thomas Hawkins. The Will of John Hawkins, dated February 1725/26 was proved in Essex county, June, 1726. His legatees were his sons, Thomas and William, and daughter, Mary.

I do not believe this Thomas Hawkins should be added as the father of the John Hawkins who died in AA Co. MD in 1675. Both men appear to be the same generation, the bio states there was still a John Hawkins living in the VA county in 1725, and there is no proof showing any of this Hawkins family to MD.
