He was a noted English thoroughbred race horse owner and breeder. Hawley was born in Harley Street, London, on 27 October 1813 or 1814, the eldest of ten children. In his early career Hawley trained privately at Fyfield in Wiltshire. Four of his horses won The Derby: Teddington (1851), Beadsman (1858), Musjid (1859) and Blue Gown (1868). Other classic horseracing wins were Fitz-Roland in the 1858 2,000 Guineas, Aphrodite in the 1851 1,000 Guineas, Miami in the 1847 Oaks and Pero Gomez in the 1869 St Leger. He thus won all five English Classics. He was the breeder of the 1874 Belmont Stakes winner Saxon.
