"Sir William Haute was born either about 1419 or about 1430, depending on whether he was the son of Margaret Berwick, his father's first wife, or of Joan Wydville, the second wife. This is a problem in which there is legitimate argument on both sides and no certain solution."

"As William Hawte the younger he was appointed a Justice of the Peace for Kent in 1461 and 1462, as William Hawte, his father having died, in 1464 and 1465, and as Sir William Hawte in 1467, 1469, 1471-1475, 1479-1481, and 1485-1494. Queen Elizabeth Wydville was crowned on Ascension Day, May 26, 1465, and that morning, in the Tower of London, William Hawte was created a Knight of the Bath by the king. Sir William was Sheriff of Kent three times, and was made a freeman of Canterbury in 1467.
Sir William joined the rising of the Duke of buckingham against Richard III in 1485, and, in a proclamation issued after it was subdued, a reward of 300 marks or ten acres of land was laid on his capture as a traitor. The battle of Bosworth Field and the accession of Henry VII put a speedy end to his "treason."
Sir William made his will, which is not recorded, in 1480 and a writ of mandamus was issued for an inquest post mortem on the estate of William Hawte, knight, on September 7, 1499. It was found that Sir William had died on July 2, 1497."
