About Nicholas Hayward, of Salem

From Susan P. Canney's database at Rootsweb.com:

Nicholas Hayward was in Salem in 1642 when he and his wife, brought their son Nathaniel for b aptism. On January 23, 1642/3, the town made him a grant of 10 acres, which may have been th e land "near Bass Riverhead" in what became Beverly where he was living in 1646. In 1691 hiss on Nathaniel sold "that house lot which it is well known my father did live on when he did live in Salem towne." Nathaniel also had a controversy with the Town of Salem over what must have been his father's property in 1697. His sister-in-law Ann Judkin of Gloucester, formerly wife of Nehemiah Howard of Salem, aged about 57, testified to the title to the land from 1652 to 1662. Nicholas had another lot in Salem town, which he gave up in 1671/2 when it was take n in laying out Winter street, the town voting that he should have satisfaction. He petitioned for and was granted liberty of common "on land lying near his house," which was probably on the Bass river land, in 1651. He owned land in Wenham greatmeadow in 1672.

His will was proved on 10 April 1683. He left to his son Nathaniel "all I am possessor of" for his life and after his death Nathaniel's two sons Nathaniel and Nicholas shall have "all my land which was properly mine."If one shall die he that surviveth shall inherit; if both, there is to be an equal division among his sons' male children.The land is not to be sold but to remain to the legitimate heirs forever. To his daughter-in-law Anah Judkins, one shillin g, upon demand. To grandson Nehemiah Hayward, the great chest called a "sipras chest." To grandson Jonathan Hayward a chest called a tarpolin chest. To grandson Samuel Hayward, my littl e chest. To granddaughter Elizabeth Hayward, my little cubbord. To granddaughter Abigail Hayw ard, what pewter I have. To granddaughter Sarah Hayward, Jr., my white pine box. To granddaughter Hannah Hayward, daughter of son Nathaniel, my brass pot and little iron pot. My grandchildren by son Nehemiah Hayward, deceased, shall have for remembrance, viz. to Sarah Harve [Harvey], an apple roaster and a spice mortar; top Anah Sargent, my wife's gown she used to wear when living; To Roase Hayward my warming pan. Witnesses: John Kettle, James Kettle.
