Notes for Nathaniel Hayward:
By trade Nathaniel was a carpenter and lived in Beverly although often he is called "of Salem." He was on the Grand Jury in 1669, and a tythingman in 1677. In 1675 Nathaniel Hayward, aged about 33, testified that at Beverly town meeting he observed that part of the persons that voted were not Freemen. In 1692 he was named in a deed as "Cornet Nathaniel Howard Senr."
When the New Englanders under Major Sedgwick captured Port Royal from the French in 1654, Capt. Lothrop asked the Major for a bell which hung in a friary and was part of the spoils in which he intended to hang in the church at the settlement which was to become Beverly. The bell was sent to Salem in Capt. Richard More's kletch and was taken by Beverly men in More's absence without any bill of lading or payment to More. Twenty-five years later More sued and won. Nathaniel Hayward, aged about 27, deposed that being in company with Capt. More, about two years ago, he told them that the bell which is at Beverly was for Capt. Lowthrop but, said More, "you Beverly men did steal ye bell in yt you took ye bell without order when I was not at home."
Nathaniel's will is headed "Mr. Nathaniel Hayward's Will of Salem" and it is dated 1 May 1719. He states that he had already settled the greater part of his estate by giving land to his children and grandchildren by deed, namely to the children of his son Nathaniel and to his sons Nehemiah, Jonathan, Nicholas, Samuel and Stephen. He had also given to his daughters Elizabeth Kettle, Abigail Flint, Sarah Coburn and Hannah Vickery as they "married away from me." To his sons Nehemiah and Samuel, a parcel of land, 100 acres, which he had bought of his son Jonathan, lying in the town of Belden. To his son Stephen, the rest of his personal estate. For love and affection to his kinswoman Hannah Coit, daughter of his brother Nehemiah Haywood Ð5. To his daughters Elizabeth Kettle, Abigail Flint and Hannah Vickery, 5s. each. To the children of his daughter Sarah Coburn, 5s. He had already taken care of his wife Elizabeth by a deed, his son Stephen the grantee. Executor: son Stephen. Witnesses: Jonathan Rayment, Barnabas Raymon, Moses ___. Proved 26 Jan 1720/1.
