English: habitational name, with excrescent -s, from Hawkinge (Kent). The placename derives from the Old English personal name Heafoc or Old English heafoc ‘hawk’ + the placename forming suffix -ing. This name has been assimilated to the patronymic surname in Devon from Sir John Hawkyns (1532–95), victor against the Spanish Armada (1588), who was a member of the Devon family of Hawkins, a branch of a Kentish family from the village of Hawkinge. They held land in Plymouth as long ago as 1480.
