HAWKHURST FAMILY - St.John/Queens Counties - New Brunswick
« on: Tuesday 23 January 18 11:56 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Looking for additional information on descendants of the Hawkhurst Family of St John (mainly) New Brunswick.  Specifically the following ancestral line:

Isaac Hawkhurst of Grand Lake, Queens County who married Marion Flowers around 1850?
I have two recorded children:
Bianca Hawkhurst (1852-1928) who married William John MacPherson in 1871 and
Elias Bedford Hawkhurst (1866-1922) who married Alberta Phoebe Brown in 1890.

Elias and Phoebe's children were:
Arthur Verner Hawkhurst (1893-?)
William Stanley Hawkhurst (1898-1949)
Manford Hazen Hawkhurst (1903-?)
Greta May Hawkhurst (1905-?)

My family link to the Hawkhursts above is through Arthur Verner's marriage in 1915 to Jeannie Atwell, one of my maternal Grand Aunts.

I have interrogated the online databases available and have a certain amount of information I am willing to share but have a few vital gaps in my knowledge.

Look forward to hearing from anyone with strong family connections to the Hawkhursts.
