Hawkins Family of Newland and Coleford (General)

I've checked with Men in Armour for Gloucestershire 1608 - which is on the net to see if there were any Hawkins in Newland...

There isn't - there are two Millstone Hewer's

David TRESTID and David TYDDER.

British History on Line - Newland - mentions these two (not by name) - and says, probably working quarries by the Wye near Lower Redbrook Hamlet.

There is also a James HAUKINSON - son of Richard Baptised at Newland in 1619.

Reading Portrait of Gloucestershire by T A Ryder -

Two miles to the east of Newland is Clearwell - made of local sandstone, so assume they were quarrying sandstone.

Surname seems also to be spelt HAWKYNS
