Thomas Hayward married by about 1624 Susanna _____. They had nine children: Thomas, John, Elizabeth Ames, Susanna Richmond, Martha Howard, Nathaniel, Elisha, Joseph, & Mary Mitchell. Either Thomas Hayward or his wife was related in some way to Peter Town of Cambridge. In his will of 28 May 1705, "Peter Town of Cambridg[e]" ordered that "when my wife dies or ceases to be my widow then the whole of my real estate shall be divided among my five first cousins living at Bridgwater, viz: my cousin John Howard, my cousin Nathaniel Howard, my cousin Joseph Howard, my cousin Elisha Howard & my cousin Mary Mitchell." As Waldo Chamberlain Sprague pointed out in 1960, the disposal of the legacy from Peter Town provides us with much of our information on the children and grandchildren of Thomas Hayward. (Unfortunately, Sprague misreported some of the deed citations.) Source: Anderson's Great Migration Study Project
