I’m also researching the Haywards from Croydon (George, born 1822), but so far I only have the following info (almost nothing so to speak), maybe you could help further and tell me what you know about these Haywards from Croydon.
The furthest I could go is the following :
George Hayward :
Christening: JUL 1822 Saint John The Baptist, Croydon, Surrey, England
Marriage: 22 MAY 1847 Saint Nicholas, Brighton, Sussex, England to Henriette Louise Bally from Switzerland.
I think his father was named Ebenezer, as well as his brother (one of them) and his nephew.
Is it relevant ?
Thanks in advance,
