Our roots start in England with a move to Dorchester, MA in 1635. The family was split between Loyalists and Revolutionists. Shortly after the Revolutionary War, some of the family returned to England and others went to Halifax, NS. I have the genealogy from John Hawes, Haws, Hawse (depends on verbal communication in that era) to present. John Hawes (1827-1907) was my G Grandfather. His father was born in England, he married a Banchford, Blanchford in Halifax, NS. My great grandfather returned to Dorchester, MA with his family (12 children) in 1856. He had many relatives in the Dorchester, MA area.

Note: There are numerous Hawes families in the Halifax area.
