    Notes 
    • From the Hawkins biography at Luminarium

      Hawkyns was buried at sea, but in accordance with his will a monument was erected to his memory in the church of St. Dunstan's-in-the-East, in which parish he had resided for thirty years, and to the poor of which, as well as of Plymouth and of Deptford, he bequeathed a sum of 50. In addition to the Latin inscription on the monument, another in English was shown on a mural tablet. These with the church perished in the great fire; but the inscriptions have been preserved by Stow (Survey of London, vol. i. lib. ii. p. 45). In the English verses there is an error, presumably of transcription, which makes them unintelligible. According to Stow



      Dame Katharine his first religious wife

      Saw years thrice ten and two of [marital] life,

      Leaving the world the sixth, the seventh ascending.


      Married should probably be read for mortal in the second line, the third line implying that at her death she was between 42 x 6 times 7 and 49 7 times 7. Sir Richard Hawkyns, her son, was born in or about 1561 or 1562, and Dame Katharine died after a lingering illness in the first days of July 1591. By the special permission of her husband she executed a will on 23 June 1591.
