About George Hayes, Sr.

According to Ezekiel Hayes, of New Haven, a great grandson of George;      

George Hayes "Went from Scotland to Derbyshire in England, and lived with his uncle. He was anxious to see London, whither he went. Having received some account of America, he took passage to this country. He married, and had three children. His wife died; and also his children. Afterwards he married Abigail Dibol of Long Island, and lived in Windsor Connecticut, and by her had ten [eleven] children."

George Hayes is first found New England in Windsor in 1682. He married first, Sarah (_____), by whom he had three children, all of whom died soon. His last child by this marriage was George, born March 26, 1683. His wife, Sarah, died the following day and George Jr. died a week later. George next married Abigail Dibble who gave him eleven children, all of whom survived to adulthood. The first seven children of this marriage were born in Windsor. The remaining children were born in Salmon Brook (later Granby), where George had located in 1698.      In 1698, George purchased the Salmon Brook homestead of Thomas Griffin. In 1708, John Matson conveyed to "Georg hayse" land lying between the low meadow lots and the upper Meadow lots, being ten acres more or less along Crooked Brook. In 1723 the town granted 138 acres to George Hayes Sr.
