Hawkins Genealogy & History

Hawkins is a descriptive English surname, derived from Old English "hafoc", meaning hawk, describing someone as fierce as a hawk. The suffix "kins" is a double-patronymic meaning kin of. The name can also be locational, referring to "Hafocing" in Kent and meaning "hawk place", where the Hawkinses held a feudal manor. It might even be a pet name for Henry. Renowned in Hawkins family history are the fierce military heroes Sir John Hawkins and Lord Hawkins, who conquered the Spanish Armada with Sir Francis Drake in 1588, perhaps heeding the family motto "toujours pret", meaning "always ready". Hawkins family genealogy in America dates to the 1630s.
