| || Notes for Elizabeth Hawkins:|
?Elizabeth is shown on the Welcome list as a daughter of Jeffery and Dorothy Hawkins. As she is not shown in the All Saints Parish (Norton Bavant's Parish) Register, I think that this is a very questionable attachment. Might she have been a daughter of Jeffery's brother Roger, who is carried on the Welcome list as a possible?
Family lived in Elizabeth Town NJ (William Darby purchased 44 acres from Agatha White, widow in 1687, and sold it to John Blanchard in 1701). They moved to Scotch Plains.(Info furnished 10 May 1999, by Melissa McSwain, 8th g-granddaughter of William Darby, whose sources is a book "Clark" by Elmer Sayre Clark of Elizabeth Town, NJ)

From Hawkins Family, Wilts Co., England to Tipton Co., IN and Related Families, by Harold T. Hawkins: This man is identified as a brother of Jeffrey Hawkins the elder by a record of Falls Monthly Meeting dated 6 9th mo. 1689, shortly after the death of Roger. On 4 7th mo. 1685, Jeffrey Hawkins, planter, conveyed to Roger Hawkins, planter, for L8/15, 100 acres, part of a grant confirmed to Jeffrey Hawkins by William Penn.1This deed does not call the grantee a brother but on 1 March 1706, Jeffrey Hawkins of Philadelphia, laborer, gave a release to Elizabeth, widow of William Darby, in which he recites that his father Jeffrey had sold to his brother Roger (uncle of the younger Jeffrey) the property mentioned in the deed of 1685. 2*In a deed of Jeffrey Hawkins to his son Daniel dated 1 10th mo. 1687, the mark of Roger Hawkins appears as witness.3*Roger Hawkins was also a witness on 17 4th mo. 1683 to the marriage of Samuel Dark and Ann Knight and again in 1684 to the marriage of Richard Lundy.

Referring to Elizabeth Jane it is my feeling that refernces to Elizabeth beening baptized as Jane are incorrect. Englishmen of that time did not have two names, and for legal purposes the given name was the same as the baptismal name.
Jane was a daughter of Jeffery and Dorothy (Mattock). She married Thomas Coverdale, and they are the administrators of her brother Daniel's estate (in PA) following his death. Beyound reasonable doubt she was on the Welcome in 1682, though not listed (remember that there is no passenger list for the Welcome; the list is constructed from other records, letters, and guesses). My feeling (no proof, but searching) is that Elizabeth and and Susanna (considered as proven passengers) were not the daughter of Jeffery, but daughters of his brother Roger and wife Sarah (who are listed as possible passengers).
