Occupation*Ebenezer Howard, as he was known in Newton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), was a stonecutter and carver of gravestones.5
Relationship Note*Ebenezer was fourteen years younger than his cousin Nathan Hayward, and it is likely that Ebenezer learned to carve gravestones in his cousin Nathan's shop in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). Nathan's face-with-wings design appears to have been the inspiration for the design which Ebenezer developed in the early 1760s.5

b. circa 1726, d. 10 November 1801
RelationshipMother of John Bolton
ChartsDescendants of Nicholas Boulton, The Immigrant
Descendants of John Bolton and Zilpah Peirce
Father-Probable*Nathaniel Hayward2,3,4 b. 14 Apr 1690, d. 23 Feb 1755
Mother-Probable*Mary Harvey2,5,4 b. c 1679, d. 1756
Birth*circa 1726Elizabeth Hayward was born circa 1726. Elizabeth's estimated birth year of 1726 was calculated from the Massachusetts (Bridgewater) Vital Records notation that her grave marker indicated she died in 1801 at the age of 76.6
Research Notes*We are currently researching the Hayward families of Plymouth and neighboring counties in Massachusetts to try to determine whose daughter "our" Elizabeth Hayward, born circa 1726, was. No record of her actual birth date or location has yet been found and her family has not been positively identified. In his 1897 "History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater", Nahum Mitchell speculated that Elizabeth Hayward was, perhaps, the daughter of Nathaniel and Mary (Harvey) Hayward of Bridgewater. In Oscar J. Harvey's 1899 "Harvey Book", the children of Mary Harvey and Nathaniel Hayward were not included. In Paul Dillon Hayward's 1985 publication of "Thomas Hayward of Bridgewater", although the author listed Elizabeth as the daughter of Nathaniel and Mary (Harvey) Hayward, he also stated in his Preface that the book was his third compilation on the Haywards and that most of the data presented had been obtained from previously published sources. He warned that there are undoubtedly many errors, some of which may invalidate entire sections of his book.

So far, we have identified just three other possible Elizabeth Hayward candidates and they, in order to keep track of their information, are included, along with what we've learned about their families, in this project.2,3,4
(CLUE? Identity) Birth1725Elizabeth Hayward was born in 1725 in Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). She and her known Hayward family are included in this collection because she may be a clue to the identity and parentage of "our" Elizabeth Hayward.7
(CLUE? Identity) Birth1726Elizabeth Hayward was born in 1726 in Mendon, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). She and her known Hayward family are included in this collection because she may be a clue to the identity and parentage of "our" Elizabeth Hayward.8
(CLUE Identity?) Baptism10 November 1728A daughter of Nathaniel Hayward and Hepzibah Alden named Elizabeth Hayward was baptized on 10 November 1728 in New North Church, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). She and her known Hayward family are included in this collection because she may be a clue to the identity and parentage of "our" Elizabeth Hayward. It should be noted, however, that the Alden resource contains multiple marriages and descendants for Elizabeth that, if correct, would conflict with our known information and eliminate her as a candidate.9,10
Name VariationOur "own" Elizabeth Hayward was usually called Betty.
Marriage*26 September 1751She married John Bolton Jr., son of Elisha Bolton and Mary ______, on 26 September 1751 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). Although her husband was identified as "John Bolton Jr." in their marriage record, it is believed that the title of "Junior" was used only as a means of distinguishing him from his older uncle, Ensign John Bolton of Bridgewater.1,11,2
(Wife) Death9 July 1762Betty became a widow with four young children when John Bolton died in the army at age 32. His name was recorded only as a "son of Elisha" in the Pembroke, Plymouth County death records on 9 July 1762. John had first enlisted in the French and Indian War in 1754 and served multiple times, many miles away from home, for much of their marriage.12,13,14,15,16
Court Action*9 December 1766During the court of General Sessions which convened on 9 December 1766 in Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), Betty Bolton of Bridgewater was fined 20 shillings and costs for fornication. This researcher considers her crime additional evidence that her husband, John Bolton Jr., was the son of Elisha Bolton who died in 1762 since fornication was the crime of an unmarried woman. A married woman would have been fined for adultery.17
Census 1790*Elizabeth Bolton appeared on the 1790 census as the Head of Household in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Two females were the sole occupants of the home.18
(Mother-in-law) Land Transfer31 December 1793Betty's son-in-law, Joseph Bolton Jr. of Bridgewater, in the County of Plymouth, yeoman, signed a deed agreement on 31 December 1793 to sell a dwelling house standing in the East Precinct of Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, and the Land that the house was standing on to Betty's daughter Betty Bolton, Spinster, for the sum of 4 pounds, 4 shillings. The deed was witnessed by Thomas Hayward and Cornelius Hayward on 16 Mar 1794 and recorded on 27 Mar 1794. The younger Betty was Joseph's sister-in-law, and the house she purchased provided a home for herself and her mother, Elizabeth "Betty" (Hayward) Bolton, Joseph's mother-in-law, until their respective deaths a few years later.19
(Mother) Census 1800Elizabeth (Hayward) Bolton likely appeared on the 1800 census in the household of her daughter Betty Bolton in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Two females were enumerated in the household: one in the age category of 26 thru 44 who was likely Betty, and the other in the age category of 45 and over who was probably Betty's mother.20
Death*10 November 1801Elizabeth (Hayward) Bolton died on 10 November 1801 in Bridgewater21
Burial*11 November 1801 and was buried on 11 November 1801 in Section D, grave number 483 of the Old Graveyard, Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Her stone read "Here lies the Widow Betty Bolton, wife of Mr. John Bolton, who died Nov. 10, 1801, aged 76 years."22,23,24,21
