Dr. Francis Lister Hawks (10 June 1798 – 26 September 1866) was an American priest of the Episcopal Church, and a politician in North Carolina. After practicing law with some distinction he entered the Episcopalian ministry in 1827. Scandals in the 1830s and 40s led him to posts on the American frontier, although he eventually returned to New York City. On his appointment as historiographer of his church in 1835, he went to England and collected the abundant materials afterwards utilized in his Contributions to the Ecclesiastical History of U.S.A. (New York, 1836-1839). These two volumes dealt with Maryland and Virginia, while two later ones (1863 1864) were devoted to Connecticut.
