Thomas Hayward1

d. 1681
Relationship3rd great-grandfather of John Bolton
Father*______ Hayward
Birth*Thomas Hayward was born in England.1
Marriage* In England, he probably married Mehetible Waldo. Their sons were born in England, but their daughters were probably born in the colonies.2
Immigration*1635It is believed that Thomas Hayward, who came from Aylsford, Kent County, England, and John Ames both arrived in America in 1635 on the ship Hercules and settled first in Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Both men were early proprietors in Bridgewater, also in Plymouth County. John's brother William Ames may also have arrived on the same ship, settling in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts as early as 1640.2,3
(Brother-Probable) Marriage1645Elizabeth Hayward, who was probably a sister of Thomas Hayward, married John Ames in 1645 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).4
Freeman*1646He was made a Freeman in 1646 This meant that he was legally recognized as a white male over 21 years of age holding full rights of citizenship, being free to engage in a trade or business, own land, and to vote3
Land Grant* and was an original proprietor and among the earliest and eldest of the settlers of Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).3
(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656Thomas Hayward was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. Thomas Hayward was among the earliest, and eldest, of the original proprietors to relocate from Duxbury and settle in Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share.

Will*1678Thomas Hayward left a will dated 1678 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). He had no wife living at that time and named his children Thomas, Nathaniel, John, Joseph, Elisha, Mary wife of Edward Mitchell, and Martha wife of John Howard. His son Thomas was a witness to his will and, according to Nahum Mitchell, probably wrote it.3
Death*1681He died in 1681.1,3

However, two years before his birth, his parents had had another son they named Thomas who died before he was two months old. It may be that the "2nd" was added to his name in the birth record in order to identify him as the second Thomas of his parents when he was born two years later. In later records, as Thomas had children, his was identified as Thomas 3rd in their birth records.1,2

Thomas Hayward Esq.1

d. 15 August 1698
Relationship2nd great-granduncle of John Bolton
Father*Thomas Hayward2 d. 1681
Mother*Mehetible Waldo2 d. b 1681
Birth*Thomas Hayward was born in England.2
Marriage*He married Sarah Ames.2
Biographical Info* He was one of the first settlers of Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony), and by far the most honored and distinguished man there at that time. He was one of the first military officers, appointed Lieutenant in 1667 and Captain in 1692. He was a Magistrate and one of the Governor's Assistants, first chosen in 1690, and was a Justice of the Court of Common Pleas and Sessions in 1692.1
(Husband) Relationship NoteSarah Ames's family has not yet been determined. We wonder, though, if she may have been a relative, perhaps a sister, of brothers John Ames and William Ames. The Ames and Hayward men, and possibly their sisters and other family members, arrived in New England together on the same ship and there is evidence that the families interacted in both Duxbury and Bridgewater after arriving in America. Additionally, Elizabeth Hayward, the "probable sister" of Sarah's husband Thomas Hayward Esq. married John Ames, one of the Ames brothers who sailed from England with the Thomas Hayward family.
(Son) Will1678Thomas Hayward Esq. and his siblings, Nathaniel Hayward, John Hayward, Joseph Hayward, Elisha Hayward, Mary Mitchell and Martha Howard were named in the will of their father, Thomas Hayward, dated 1678 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Thomas was also a witness to the will and, according to Nahum Mitchell, probably wrote it.1
Death*15 August 1698He fell from his horse and died on 15 August 1698.2,1
No Issue*Thomas and Sarah (Ames) Hayward had no children, at least none that out lived their parents.2
Residence*Joseph Hayward lived with, and was brought up by, his uncle Thomas in Bridgewater and then, after his uncle's death, Joseph raised his own family on the same property. In 1840, Joseph's grandson Daniel also lived near the original property.1
