A native of North Carolina, Hawks first pursued a career in law after graduating from college, but in 1826 gave up jurisprudence for the study of theology, and the following year was ordained. By 1831 he had been made rector of St. Stephen's Church in New York, and then St. Thomas's Church, where he remained until 1843 when he resigned and moved south.
