My name is Susan Hurne nee Hawkes. I am trying to trace the Hawkes family. I can go back as far as Albert Hawkes who married Emma? My Father was called Arthur Joseph Hawkes and his fathers name was Arthur Percival Hawkes. Dads Father married a Gertrude (Maise) Skinner. My Dad was born in Rotorua. Dad was bought up in Hukatere. Any help would be much appreciated.
I've been asked by my Aunt - Shirley Stirling - to try to track you down. Her message to me was:
"I was wanting to make contact with a Susan Hurne nee Hawkes, on the Hawkes family site.
Can you have a look and see if you can find her.
She is a descendent of Margaret Mear who married Joseph Skinner, Their daughter Gertrude May (Maisie) married Arthur Percival Hawkes, Susan's Grand father."
I have a family tree that includes the a Mear branch as my maternal grandmother was a Mear. If you confirm you are happy to make contact with Shirley then let me know and I will pass on contact details.
