About Dame Katherine Hayward

KATHERINE SMYTHE (1561-1616)

Katherine Smythe was the daughter of Thomas "Customer" Smythe (1522-June 7, 1591), collector of customs duties for the port of London, and Alice Judde (c.1533-1593). In about 1578, she married Rowland Hayward (d. December 5, 1593), a clothworker who was Lord Mayor of London in 1590. His mansion was King's Place in Hackney, later sold to the countess of Oxford. Their children were George (March 10, 1587-July 1615), John (c.1591-April 11, 1636), Alice, Katherine, Mary (d.1662), and Anne and two children who died as infants. Hayward's will, dated November 17, 1592 and proved March 4, 1595, can be found at www.oxford-shakespeare.com. Katherine's second husband was Sir John Scott of Nettlestead, Kent (1570-December 28, 1616), to whom she was married c.1600 as his second wife. Some genealogies say she also married Sir Richard Sandys, but this seems to have been her daughter, Katherine Hayward, who was first married to Richard Scott, son of Sir Thomas. Portrait: possibly portrait by Cornelius Ketel 1579; monument in St. Mary the Virgin, Nettlestead, Kent. A grant from the Rochester Bridge Trust in 2010 paved the way for restoration of this monument at an estimated cost of £20,000. That there is a child shown kneeling behind her suggests that she had a child by Sir John Scott.
