    The coat of arms you show for the first two should be for HAWKE, with an -E at the end. This spelling is much more common in Britain though the two spellings are sometimes used in the same family. When HAWKEs emigrated to USA, they often used the HAWK spelling instead, so that that is more common than HAWKE in your country.

    HAWKS and HAWKES are different in origin to the name without an -S, with a different spread around England. I have not found any cases of the names being used with or without the -S in the same family. As above, HAWKS is more common in USA than Britain.

    To me, it would be better to split the two names up, i.e. HAWK + HAWKE, and HAWKS + HAWKES. There are other spellings that sound like HAWK and HAWKS, but I don’t think there are any coats of arms for HOKE, HAX, HAUK, HOUK, etc. (with or without the -E/S). Some of these spellings are still in USA, though most have died out in Britain. Some originate in other parts of Europe, especially Holland and Germany. Of course, emigrants to former British colonies (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, etc) have spread the names as well, usually with their original spelling.

    I think Nicholas HAWKE of Trerivon and Alternon was an ancestor of Edward, the 1st Baron HAWKE, but it will take Y-DNA tests to prove it – there are descendants from both, but I’ve not had any luck persuading them to do tests!
