Descendants of Walter De Hawksworth

David Smyth writes: "This is most probably our branch of the Hawksworths, because a lot of generations coincide with my Hawksworth family tree from the 1200s onward. I think the Elizabeth Hawksworth who shows up at Generation 14 here may be the one who married Ralph Smyth.Hawksworth Hall - adapted from an engraving She seems to have been born about the right time. The relationships are rather involved, but I think Sir Richard Hawksworth may have been her uncle, and Peter Hawksworth her father. Sir Richard is at Generation 16 on my Hawksworth family tree and this Richard Hawksworth is at Generation 14."

(March 2003) The following pedigree is the result of the dedicated research of Marian Melozzi, who died at the turn of this century at the young age of 53. Her cousin and also a keen family researcher, Gary Hoxworth - who carries some of her information - explains two of her main sources.

Gary writes: " ... my cousin, Marian Melozzi, did much of the research into the Hoxworth side of the family. Following are a couple of the references she gave me. - Jenkins, Charles Francis - Film at Gen. Society of Utah 1947, US & Can. Film Area 0020434 item 9 and - Pedigree of Hawksworth and Fawkes of Farnley - British Book Area 929.242  H315h also at Gen. Society of Utah, US & Can Film Area 1022746 item 4"

Ralph Smyth (d. 1689) - of Ballymacash, Co. Antrim. (High Sheriff, 1680) Captain Ralph Smyth (the Tanner) was the progenitor of the Irish Smyth/e lines treated on this site. He married, in 1643, Alice or Elizabeth Hawksworth - the daughter of either Peter Hawksworth (which seems more probable now (2003) in light of the above) or - as originally thought - Sir Richard Hawksworth of Hawksworth Hall, Yorkshire.
