Hayward's of Gloucetershire (Parish Records)

by alby65 @, Sunday, April 06, 2014, 21:54 (2322 days ago)

Me again, any help is always so much appreciated. Hopefully I wrote this all out that it makes sense;

This is what I know;

• John Hayward born 1689 – 1734 married an Elizabeth ? they had;
• Samuel born 1721 – 1797 married a Mary Parry born 1734 – they had the following children

• John born 1761 – 185 married Elizabeth Rowles 1760, than a Sarah “Hall” (not sure if maiden name or married name as they were both widowers at time of marriage)
• Sarah born 1758 – 1831
• Mary born 1757
• Samuel born 1765 – 1849 married a Sarah Taysum 1766 – 1845

1. Trying to determine if John 1689 and Elizabeth had any other children (some sites say a Joseph 1726, John 1719, William 1731, Anne 1734…not sure though)

2. John 1689 married Elizabeth around 1718, what is Elizabeth’s last name

3. John 1689 father is supposedly John, who is his mother?

Thanks, Allison

Hi Allison

You have not given any indication as to where this family were from!

Could you narrow it down a bit please?

Evening Chris,
this post can be considered a continuation of this one, the Haywards were generally from the Arlingham/Broadoak side of the Severn, altho I cannot recall precisely where re these queries.

Thank you so much, will look into all of this and see what pops-up! Anyone know where, if any, Broad oak records are?

Broadoak is between Westbury on Severn and Newnham. Would suggest you try those parishes.
