Hawkins Family History

Amongst the long list of British naval heroes, the names of Sir John Hawkins and Lord Hawkins (no relation), the conquerors with Sir Francis Drake of the 1588 Spanish Armada, stand almost supreme. The name itself, deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "Hafoc" meaning "Hawk", is descriptive for one who possessed that bird's ferocious instincts. The name, as a personal name without a surname is recorded in the spelling of "Havok" in the Domesday Book of 1086, compiled by William the Conqueror. In the spelling form as Hawkins, the name is a double diminutive or patronymic which translates as "the son(s) of the son (kin) of the Hawk"...

Dena, my grandfather is a Hawkins and I share the last name. He was from Oklahoma along with his other 7 siblings. I don’t know much about them expect for his sister Glena who is in a home there. I wonder if there’s relation?!


Hello my name is Dena and I am from the state of Oklahoma in the United States and I know that my birth name was Dena Renee Hawkins and that my family came from Kent England and also from Ireland and Scotland , but I have recently found out that I have family from Holland as well . Is anyone on here possibly related to me through blood at all?
