Marriage(s) & Children

A number of published genealogies note that Anthony Hawkins (Howkins) married (first) Isabel Brown. This is an error, as Jacobus states, "the wife of Anthony Hawkins (or Howkins) of Farmington is stated to have been Isabel Brown; the first wife of Anthony Howkins is unknown and Isabel Brown was the wife of Anthony Hoskins."[3] Anthony Hoskins was of Windsor, and Anthony Hawkins/Howkins, of Windsor and Farmington.
