Rick, Sorry about the delay. I believe the book is still available at Amazon or one of the online stores. If memory serves, it was $35.

I may have read one of the messages on this site that someone (a lady) has them for sale. ???

Sorry I don't remember more recent events all that well - only long-term.

Also, I read somewhere on line that a person "thinks" that Hoxie (frim Hawks/Hauks Eye) and all similar names,e.g., Hawkshaw, are all the same name.

I considered this and have arrived at a thesis that while they may be RELATED as a family, they do actually denote the Hawk family living in different parts of a particular area. Hawkseye=the Hawk (family or tribe) that lived on or near an Island; Hawkshaw=the Hawk (family or tribe) that lived by or near a copse or small forest.

There is simply too much difference in meaning to ascribe a DIRECT descendancy of any fmaily line; however, if one goes back to pre- or immediate post-Roman times - that is Celtic/Bryhonic (sp)times it may be ALL ONE LARGE family/clan as I stated earlier, and which I think may have some merit.
