an Irish Anglican divine. He took orders, and was appointed to the parish of St. Nicholas-within-the-Walls at Dublin, a rectory in the gift of the Corporation of Dublin. Hawkshaw was author of Poems upon Several Occasions, which was ‘printed by J. Heptinstall for Henry Dickinson, Bookseller in Cambridge,’ in 1693. In the dedicatory letter to ‘the Learned and Ingineous Dr. Willoughby,’ prefixed to the volume, the poet describes his effusions as ‘the essays but of a very young pen, a few by-thoughts in my vacancies from Irish studies.’ He also published in 1709 The Reasonableness of constant Communion with the Church of England represented to the Dissenters.
