Robert & Marie Hawkynns who came on the Elizabeth & Ann were definitely not the same as Robert Huckins of Dover, NH. I can't remember where I saw the genealogy for their family, it could have been in Savage, but they settled in Massachusetts.

Bill Huckins' work showed Marie or Mary as the wife of Robert Huckins of Dover, but this was based, as far as I know, on the Hawkynns entry we are discussing. I don't know that any documentation has ever been found about Mrs. Huckins.

I still think the best explanation of the origin of Robert Huckins from Dover is the one proposed by Bill--that Robert's father was John Hocking, killed on the Kennebec River in 1634 by John Howland's men, and that Robert was the boy dropped off at Oyster River on their way back to Plymouth. That Howland's daughter married a Huckins is an interesting coincidence, and we may owe our name to a spelling mistake made by the man who killed our ancestor. I don't know that any connection has ever been made between Robert Huckins of Dover and Thomas Huckins of Barnstable.
