About George Hayward, Sr.

http://www.theharmons.us/harmon_t/b887.htm

Martha (Mary) HAYWARD (Immigrant) and George HAYWARD (immigrant) were married about 1639 in Concord, Middlesex Co., MA. Children were:

  • 1. John HAYWARD,
  • 2. Joseph HAYWARD,
  • 3. Sarah HAYWARD,
  • 4. Hannah HAYWARD.

George Hayward (1604-1671) immigrated from England to New England. He may have been born in the Isle of Hartey, Kent, England.

Peter Bulkley of Bedfordshire and Simon Willard of Kent were wealthy Englishmen and they sought men capable of developing water power in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. They paid the passage for 12 families, including George and Mary (maiden name may have been Frizell or Fresel or Fraser?) Hayward and their infant daughter, to sail from London on 09 May 1635 aboard the "Susan and Ellen" bound for New England.

George Hayward was one of the first proprietors in September 1635 of Mucketaquid (soon Concord, MA). He received 6 square miles in the first division of land and his first homelot/home was near the meeting house fronting on the Common. Geroge Hayward was listed as a Freeman there by March of 1638. George Hayward "early" moved to Concord's South Quarter where he lived at "Hayward's Hills". He became the overseer at the south Quarter.

George Hayward built the first sawmill at the South Quarter in 1644 and later the first cornmill. In 1654 George Hayward was one of nine men chosen (three out of each area) and "empowered to hear and end former debate".

George Hayward died at age 67 in a conoe accident on his way back across after William Frizell over the river in a strong current. Geroge Hayward's estate was then appraised at L506.078.08. George Hayward and his wife were probably buried at the Old South Burying Ground at Concord, MA, but none of the wooden markers of this time survive.

Son Joseph Hayward (1643-1714) married first Hannah Hosmer in 1665 and had 6 children and second Elizabeth Treadway (1646-1714) [widow of Shadrack Hapgood, with 5 children] in 1677 at Concord, MA and had 6 children there. Joseph Hayward was a soldier in King Philips War and a Concord Selectman.

Granddaughter Lydia Hayward (1685-1777), daughter of Joseph Hayward (1643-1714), married John Hanchett (1679-1761) in 1706 at Suffield, MA and had 10 children there.
