(XVI) Gideon Haydon, son of Robert (3) Haydon, owned the estates of Ebford and Cadhay, having succeeded his father, and is quoted as a very worthy, honest gentleman. It is said that the estates of Cadhay have never changed hands except by inheritance for seven hundred years. Sir Thomas Hare, the present owner, received them through the female line from the Williamses, as he himself believes. Gideon Haydon married Margaret, daughter of John Davy, Esquire, of Greedy, and had seven sons and five daughters. Three of the sons were William, John and James. Several of the sons grew to manhood and were living in 1630. Haydons, descendants of this line, are still at Tiverton, and a number having this spelling are in London. The late well-known B. R. Haydon, painter and native of Plymouth, belonged to this line.
