Sir John Hayward (c. 1591 – 11 Apr 1636), is the second son of Sir Rowland Hayward by his second wife, Catherine Smythe.[1] He succeeded his brother but had no children, so this is where the line ends.[2]

John was a beneficiary of the will of his grandmother, Alice (Judde) Smythe, the will made on 10 Jul 1592[1].

Sir John Hayward was the executor of the will of his mother, Lady Katherine (Smythe) Scott, the will being made in Jan 1616/1617[2].
