He was an early settler or founder of Stratford, CT, (ca 1639) with house lot #25, located in the northeast corner of the settlement, between the palisade and Watchhouse Hill.

He was the first Town Clerk of which there is any record, serving from 1650-1666. Most of the records made were in his handwriting, which has been described as peculiar, consisting of French capitals and an abbreviated combination of miniscules, a style in which all public documents were entered in the State Books in London, ENG, at that time. It is conjectured that Hawley had learned this style in that city before coming to America.
