As friends of Hamilton Rowan these Hawthorns may have been of the family of Steele Hawthorne of Downpatrick, the first name Steele was passed down through at least three generations, they had lived at Killinchy south of Downpatrick on Strangford Lough and 5 mies north of  Killyleagh where the Hamiltons (later Rowans) lived. Charles Stewart Hawthorne Hist of Parl c1760 - post 1831 was the 3rd son of Steel Hawthorne of Downpatrick and was MP for Downpatrick 1802 to 1806, supporting Pitt then Addington then Grenville, when each was in power, though sympathetic to Catholic claims.  He married Miss Caddle of Downpatrick in 1791. His nephew Steele Hawthorne 1789-1853 became a Cadet in the Indian army in 1803 and arrived in India 17.3.1805.  Robert son of Steel Hawthorn & Margaret was bapt Downpatrick 1792, James son of Steel Hawthorn & Mary Little was bapt Downpatrick 1794, Margaret dau of Steel & Mary was bapt there 1795 and Charles Stewart son of Steel & Mary 1797. These were probably brothers and sisters of the Steel Hawthorn who went to India, and their parents could have been the Hawthorns at Rowan's. A letter to Godwin from his wife in June 1806 whiie she was staying at Charlotte Smith's in Sussex (Bodleian Abinger c9 f114) mentioned Mr Hawthorn as someone she could send letters via, and in a letter of 5.6.1806 from Godwin to his wife (Bodleian Abinger c42 f23) he said Mr Hawthorn had paid 2 shillings for his wife's letter (in those days receivers paid postage)..
