I don't have information (yet) but I have 2 Hayes from NS. Mary Hayes and her mother Margery Hayes - both in Woodstock, NB, from before 1842 marriage to Levi Mattatall to 1871 Census, possibly later. Both from NS, possibly Cape Breton area. Haven't connected them as of yet.

Hello, my G.Grandfather-John Hayes b. 1838 at the Parish of St John in Ireland,served in Canada. He first married an ? O`Connell then Margaret Boland and came to New Zealand ( 1876),married 1873 . He was in the Canadian Mounties and then in the Crimean War.
Johns parents were John Hayes & Anne Ryan in Ireland.
He was on parade in Novia Scotia and the then Duke of York asked him where his Sebastopol Clasp was and he told him he had lost it in a fire in Halifax.
Have so few details but it is always worth a try. The familytree is a puzzle and hard to find the right pieces but we keep trying.
Regards.
Marie.
