"THE CALKINS FAMILY
This family was first taxed in the South Precinct of DC about 1740 but two brothers were in Beekman as early as 1739. A John Calkins was in Pawling for the 1790 census. The emigrant was HUGH CALKINS who was born ca. 1600 and was of Norwich, CT by 1640. He m. Ann _____ and died 1690. We have decided to follow two lines because we are unsure of the exact identity of the man in the 1790 census.
1. i. John, b. 1634; m. Sarah Royce.
ii. Sarah; m. William Hough.
iii. Mary; m. Hugh Roberts.
iv. Deborah, b. 18 March 1643/4; m. (1) Jonathan Royce, (2) _____ Woodward.
v. Rebecca; dy.
vi. David, b. 163?; m. Mary Bliss.".

"Hugh Calkins was baptized 8 April 1603 at Waverton, the son of Rowland Calkin and Ellen (Payne) who were married in 1597. Hugh had an elder brother William, who appears to have survived, if the marriage of 1631 to Elizabeth Siverston is pertinent. A younger brother Peter, baptised 18 August 1605, probably did not survive because his mother Ellen was buried five days later. Obviously arrangements amongst the Calkin clan were made to aid Hugh's survival chances, but Rowland did not appear to remarry immediately. He did remarry much later, in February 1624/25. While the Bishop's Transcript record is defective, the marriage license dated the previous day (12th February) gives a full version, namely: Rowland Cawken and Margaret Kirfoot, widow, of Waverton. Re-inforcing [sic] this is the Will of Margaret Calkin of Waverton in 1637 where she leaves bequests to her three children John, Mary and Ralph Kirfoot. So Rowland had died between 1625 and 1637 but we have no record of his burial. Rowland was born in the late 1570's probably the son of Hugh Calkin."
