                Complexion fair,
                Hair D.Brown,
                Eyes brown, 
                Chest 33in, 
                Weight 119lbs
Distinct Marks: tattoos, left & right forearm & back of left hand

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
      Date: 12th Sept 1909
Birth Date: 13 Dec 1903
   Parents: Arthur (Labourer/Engineer) 
            & Amelia
   Address: 141 High Block
     Place: St John the Evangelist, 
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, and 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.
