Mother*Eliony Lumber1 b. c 1625
Birth*1 September 1666Deborah Hawes was born on 1 September 1666 in Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1,2
Marriage*6 January 1685/86She married first Ephraim Pond, son of Daniel Pond and Abigail Shepard, on 6 January 1685/86 in Wrentham, Suffolk County.3,4
(Wife) Death22 December 1704Deborah became a widow when Ephraim Pond died on 22 December 1704.4,3
Marriage*She may have married second Thomas Bacon, son of John Bacon and Rebecca Hall. No record of their marriage has yet been found. The Edward Hawes source reported the name of Deborah (Hawes) Pond's second husband as just Thomas Bacon, with no source information, parents, previous wife or date of birth. The Daniel Pond source simply noted that after Ephraim's death, Deborah married "a Bacon". Our research indicates that Thomas Bacon, whose first wife Hannah Fales had died in 1711, and fourth marriage occurred after the date of Deborah's death, is the most likely candidate to select as the Thomas Bacon who may have been Deborah's second husband.5,3,6,7,4
Death*circa 1737She died circa 1737.8

Joseph Pratt and Ebenezer Ellis were to pay all the debts belonging to the estate plus £7 16s funeral charges. Joseph Pratt and his wife Lydia (Hawes) Pratt also received three acres of meadow near what was called South Meadow and bounded on South Brook northeasterly and on the land of John Mackenab easterly and on what was called Hawes Hill southerly to a certain dam, for their full share in the whole estate of their father, John Hawes, deceased. Ebenezer Ellis received, to make up for his full share on behalf of the deceased's grandson Samuel Everett, 2.25 acres and 22 rods of land in what was called Old Field, butted and bounded on the land set off to pay the debts and funeral charges and described as lying southeasterly and southwesterly and on the land of the estate northwesterly, and on Hawes Hill northeasterly.

James Heaton and his wife Eliony (Hawes) Heaton received 3/4 of an acre and 14 rods of land bounded southwesterly on the land set off to pay the debts and southeasterly on the land set off to Ebenezer Ellis and on the brook northwesterly and on the dam and Hawes Hill on all other parts with allowances for a convenient cart passage through it where it had been previously given and granted to Samuel Hawes, deceased; and also £23 10s in moveables to complete their full share in the estate.

John Hawes, a grandson of the deceased John Hawes, representing himself and his brothers and sisters, agreed they should receive nothing additional from their grandfather's estate because their father John Hawes, also deceased, had already received his full share in his father's estate during his lifetime.

Additionally, each of the heirs received a one-seventh part of 14 acres on Hawes Hill. The agreement then outlined how each of the seven parts of the 14 acres on Hawes Hill was to be divided.
