            Corps: Royal Artillery, No.73150, Driver
    Total service: 13yrs 18 days
           Served: Home for 1yr  312 days
                  India for 5yrs 31  days
                   Home for 2yrs 351 days

                   Home for 20 days
      Next of Kin: Father, Henry Hawkins, 1 Pear Tree St Lambeth Surrey.
Distinctive Marks: tattoos, left & right forearm & back of left hand
      Description: Height 5ft 3 5/8in, Complexion fair, Hair D.Brown,
                   Eyes brown, Chest 33in, Weight 119lbs

NOTE: I think the image says, regarding the tattoos, that one arm has a soldier 
      crossflags with sailors head. Other arm has X.X dot heart & love. 
      Hag or Flag on back of hand. 

NOTE: The original image has big long list of entries for statement of services. 
      It shows pay was withheld a few times while awaiting trial & imprisonment.
      It doesn't say anything about why he was on trial.

Arthur was put on trial for murder in 1907.  
At the trial at the Old Bailey it is stated that Arthur had a "wife" of 3
years, Amelia Annie Berry (b.abt.1875) and that they had a child together
(Arthur P Berry). Amelia Berry later married a William Mcgregor Bowie
(1914,Walworth All Saints), and they had two children. 

Arthur P Berry was staying with his Uncle John Hawkins in 1911. John put 
him on the census as Arthur Hawkins, Nephew, aged 5. Arthur went on to 
marry a Grace D Caldcleugh in 1933.

Baptism of Arthur (Junior)...

        Name: Arthur Parker Hawkins
Baptism Date: 12th Sept 1909
  Birth Date: 13 Dec 1903
     Parents: Arthur (Labourer/Engineer) & Amelia
     Address: 141 High Block
       Place: St John the Evangelist, Lambeth.
NOTE: Arthur Jr, was baptised the same day/place as his cousin Violet. 
      Same address, so I think he was probably living with his Uncle John
      for some time, at least up until the 1911 Census. 
      It pretty obvious whoever wrote the record put HIGH instead of I
      for the block/address. They make the same mistake on the record
      for both Arthur and his cousin Violet. Address is 141 I block
      Queen's buildings.

Additional notes on finding the Children's on BMD Index

In the box above is listed the BMD index for each child of Henry & Jane Hawkins.

As you can imagine, Hawkins is a common surname & with no unusual first or
middle names I could not previously find them listed until I found that they 
were all registered PARKER Hawkins.

This I found from finding first off, ARTHUR and then HENRY Hawkins as they were 
the easiest to find as on their respective census returns they were listed in 
months old rather then years.

The 1871 Census was taken on April 2nd of that year. ARTHUR was 8mths old when 
that census was conducted, so putting him as being born in JULY/AUG of the 
previous year 1870 & born Lambeth. Hence registered SEPT quarter.

The 1861 Census was taken on April 8th of that year. HENRY Hawkins is listed 
as 4 months old, & born St.Martins. This would put his DOB as around the 2nd 
of December 1860. It is more then possible that he was not registered until 
the following quarter. Hence MAR 1861.

Also on the 1901 Census, ROBERT is listed as Robert P Hawkins.

The upshot of all this was I was able to pin down their BMD entries, & therefore 
seen both had PARKER as middle name. From that it was then much easier to find 
the rest of the children. They all have PARKER as middle name.
