The Arthur Hathaway Family
"The Hathaway family descended from Arthur Hathaway, who married Sarah Cooke, daughter of John Cooke, 1610-1695--passenger with his father, Francis Cooke, on the Mayflower--and of John Cooke's wife, Sarah Warren, daughter of Richard Warren--Mayflower passenger, both signers of the Mayflower Compact. These families of the small gentry and yeoman farmer stock of Eastern England and Devonshire became in the Old Colony the governing and responsible class. They were the farmers and land-owners, and doctors, judges, sea-captains, the town officials and representatives of that highly selected stock which developed South-Eastern Massachusetts.
Arthur Hathaway, 1627 or 31-1711, is said by tradition to have been a soldier. It is not known from what place in England he came though the name is a well known one in Warwickshire.
