About William Hayward, Jr.

(II) William Hayward, younger son of William Hayward (r), was born in Braintree or vicinity about 1650. His father was drowned in 1659, and he seems to have gone to live with relatives at Bridgewater and Duxbury, where several branches of the Hayward family were living, but the exact relationship seems impossible to determine.

William first appears on the public records at Swansea, near Duxbury, 1672, the same year that William married Sarah, and their children are all recorded at Swansea. William appears to have had land at Mendon as well as his brothers, and his sons Jonathan, Samuel and William settled there or in the vicinity, but he may have lived at Swansea all his life. Apparently the author of the Milford history believes he settled about the time that his son Jonathan came to Mendon. He calls Jonathan a brother of Samuel and William. He had brothers of that name, but the two first settlers were his father William and uncle Samuel.

Children of William and Sarah Hayward, born at Swansea, were:

Jonathan, born April 8, 1672, see forward; Margery, named for her grandmother, Margery (Thayer) Hayward; Sarah, born March A 1075-76. named for her mother; Mercy, born June 9, 1678; William, born January 30, 1680-81, named for father and grandfather; Samuel, named for uncle; Huldah, born March 13, 1085, named for aunt who married the Thayer progenitor of Mendon; Oliver, born March 17, 1687; Hannah, born March 11, 1689.
