About Walter Haynes
Series 1, Volume 3, Genealogical Notes Excerpted from "Our English Parent Towns", Page 681
Semley is a parish in Wiltshire, four and three fourths miIes from Hindon (S. by W.), and about the same distance E.N.E. from Shaftsbury or Shaston in Dorsetshire and in the vicinity of Sutton Mandeville and Wardour Castle. Elizabeth, the daughter of Walter Hayme named in the will, probably was the daughter that married Roger Goard, and remained in England, named in her father's will made 25 May, 1659, proved 4 April, 1665.
Thomas, Suffraine and Mary, the only other children of Walter born at the date of his mother's will, came to New England with their parents in 1638. Semley church has been restored, and a recent visit at Semley and at Sutton Mandeville developed no footprints of the Hayne family of 1620.
The marriage of John Hayne and Alice Lambert, 23d October, 1575, is found on the Sherburne, Dorset, register, and which may be the marriage of Walter Hayne's parents. Walter Hayne's family in England seem to have belonged to the one writing themselves Hayne and Haine The name being written Hayme in this will proves little as to its correct spelling, the scribes of that day being frequently in error. In the Sudbury Records and by the descendants of Walter, the founder of the Sudbury family, the name is invariably spelled Haynes, and was so written by Walter himself when signing his will.

WALTER HAYNES FAMILY
The Haynes family is a very old one, and the early records have been carefully preserved by one John Haynes, born in 1684, who wrote an account of the families of his great-grandparents, Walter Haynes and Peter Noyes. The account was written later than 1772, since that date is mentioned, and was probably prepared when the writer was nearly ninety years old. Copies of the original document have been handed down from generation to generation and are in the possession of representatives of the family still living.
Walter Haynes, immigrant ancestor, was born in England in 1583, in the town of Sutton, Mandeville, in the County of Wilts. He owned a house and out buildings in the village of Shaston, on the Island of Purbeck, in the southeastern part of Dorsetshire. He was a weaver by trade, and, like many other courageous and enterprising spirits, decided to try his fortune in the New World, even though he had reached the age of fifty-five years. In 1638, with his wife, his sons, Thomas, John and Josiah, all under sixteen years of age, and daughters, Suffrance and Mary, he sailed from Southampton, England, bound for New England, the land of larger opportunities. In due course of time they arrived on the ship "Confidence," and settled first at Watertown. About a year later, however, he, with several others, obtained a grant for a township named Sudbury, and on December 22, 1639, he settled upon the new site. The new community prospered, and Walter Haynes and his family became active and prominent citizens. He was made a freeman in 1640, was representative in the years 1641-44-48-51; and was one of the selectmen of Sudbury for ten years. He died February 14, 1665, aged eighty-two years, he and his wife Elizabeth, having reared a family of six children: Thomas; John; Josiah, of further mention; Suffrance; Mary; and another who remained in England.
Encyclopedia of Massachusetts, Biographical-Genealogical, The American Historical Society, Inc., pgs. 32-36.
"Walter Haynes was a linen weaver. He was admitted a freeman 13 May 1641. He represented the town of Sudbury in the Massachusetts General Court (the Colonial legislature) in the years 1641, 1644, 1648 and 1651, and served as selectman of Sudbury for ten years. His first home was transposed into a frontier fort in the siege of Sudbury during King Philip's War in 1676. The house stood for two centuries thereafter and is referred to in the records as 'Mr. Haynes' old house' and as the 'Haynes Garrison House.' An original painting of the house is reproduced in Hudson's History of Sudbury at page 224. Walter Haynes died at Sudbury on 14 Feb. 1665."

Sutton Mandeville in Wiltshire is just a few miles from Shaftesbury in Dorset.
The Haynes family immigrated to the New Colony of Massachusetts aboard the "Confidence" in 1638. Walter, aged 55 years, with wife Elizabeth and sons Thomas, John, Josias, all under years and daughters Suffrance and Mary and three servants.
He also owned a house and out-buildings in the village of Shaston, situated in the island of Purbeck, in the south-eastern portion of Dorsetshire. He, with family and servants, arrived in Boston in 1638, in ship Confidence (see Savage, also Register vol. ii. p. 108). In the same ship came Peter Noyes, yeoman, of Penton, county of Southampton, with children and servants.
Walter Haynes was a linen weaver, and was 55 years of age when he came to this country. About a year after his arrival, he with others removed from Watertown, having obtained a grant for a township named Sudbury, where they settled Dec. 22, 1639. He was made freeman 1640, was representative in the years 1641, 1644, 1648 and 1651, and was one of the Selectmen of Sudbury for ten years.
His will of May, 25, 1659, mentions wife Elizabeth and four of his surviving children. Estate records of Walter Haynes, (Middlesex South Probate records) dated 25 May 1659, proved 4 Apr 1665, show his daughter's last name as Treadway (Treddoway).
- Occupation: linen weaver
- Emigration: CONFIDENCE, of London, two hundred tons, John Gibson, Master. She sailed from Southampton the last of April,
by vertue of the Lord Treasurers warrant of the 11th of April,1638.
Birth: 1583 Sutton Manderville Wiltshire, England Death: Feb. 14, 1665 Sudbury Middlesex County Massachusetts, USA
Walter Haynes was born in Sutton Mandeville, Wiltshire, England, in 1583. He was one of seven children of John Haynes & Alice Lambert. He married Elizabeth, parentage unknown, about 1612, in England. The couple had six children, all born in England. When Walter took his family to New England, his oldest daughter, Elizabeth, who was already married, remained in England with her husband.
The rest of the family, Walter, Elizabeth, John, Josias, Sufferance and Mary, sailed from Southampton on April 24, 1638 on the ship "Confidence", and arrived in Boston, Walter gave his occupation as linen weaver and his age as 55. Walter's son John had possibly come to Massachusetts the year before and stayed in Watertown with his aunt, Elizabeth Read. Also traveling with Walter, and listed as "servants", were John Blandford, 27; John Riddet, 26 and Richard Biddlecombe, 16. Another passenger on that ship was Peter Noyes, who would help Haynes govern the Town of Sudbury for many years. After spending a year in Watertown, in 1639, Walter was granted land in the new settlement of Sudbury. Haynes was elected to the first board of selectmen in 1639, and served for ten years. He represented the town at the General Court four different years. He was one of the first settlers to build on the west side of the Sudbury River, which house was probably the "Haynes Garrison" during King Philip's War.
Walter wrote and dated his will on May 25, 1659. In it, he mentions his wife Elizabeth, whose death was recorded in Sudbury on June 15, 1659, son Thomas "away from home", sons Josias and John, who is made executor, daughters Sufferance wife of Josiah Treadway, and Mary, wife of Thomas Noyes. He also disposed of a tenement in Shaston, Dorsetshire, England, willing it to the daughter who stayed in England, Elizabeth Gourd. Walter died in Sudbury on February 14, 1665, and his will was proved on April 4, 1665.
