||Joseph Hawley migrated to New England during the Puritan Great Migration (1620-1640).|
Join: Puritan Great Migration Project
Project protected by the Puritan Great Migration project because of known false parents in the literature and on the internet.
"The Hawley Society has conducted extensive research here as well as England and has no located no substantial evidence as to Joseph’s parentage. DNA evidence does not yet connect the Hawleys in North America with those living in Great Britain".
He is often said to have arrived in New England by 1629 or 1630 though the record of this seems uncertain. He is then presumed to be the same Joseph Hawley who appears in Stratford Connecticut in 1650, though this may not be true.
Joseph Hawley was Deputy for Stratford several times from May of 1658 through June of 1687; commissioner for Stratford from 1682 - 1687, 1689 - 1691.
The will of Joseph Hawley, yeoman was dated September 17, 1689. It was noted that he was sometimes Justice of the Peace. Bequeathed to his wife Katharine, sons Samuel, Ephraim, John; Samuel's son Joseph; grand children John and Joseph Chapman at Saybrook; daughters Hannah Nichols and Mary Coe; Mr. Israel Chauncey. The Inventory of his possessions was on June 4, 1690.

Any objections to disconnecting? There should be appropriate notes left on both profiles, so reattachment doesn't reoccur.
Also, PMs please see g2g here:
Please respond, thanks. I think Tim Treadwell would appreciate it.

I too hope that this is only an interim thing and that further research by genealogists will reveal parents.

On the basis on the notation in the biography, and on the new source: "Search for Joseph Hawley Parentage," I believe the parents of Joseph Hawley should be detached. Please see this g2g question and answer: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/451146/i-joseph-hawley-in-the-gm-directory?show=451146#q451146
Any comments? Do the PMs of this profile wish to detach parents? If not, I will do so. Any disagreements? Please post. Thank you.

My memory doesn't always serve me well, but it seems I recall that this biography was more extensive at one time.
Information lost in a merge? Or what? Anyone know? He is my 9th great grandfather, so I have an interest, even though I am not a PM.
Hope to hear from a PM. Thanks.
