Research into Charles Hayward.

It appears that his first marriage was to Emily Eliza Shayle in the Dec qtr. of 1886 in Worcester.

They appear in the 1891 census, living at, Mill Butts Cottage, Little Cowerne. Charles is aged 36, born in Little Cowerne, Herefordshire and his occupation is, dealer, shop.

They again appear in the 1901 census, living in Cradley. Charles is aged 46, born in Cradley? and his occupation is general dealer, shop and own account.

Emily was born in September qtr. 1863 in Ledbury, Herefordshire. Emily died in the December qtr. 1906, Ledbury, Herefordshire.

On Thursday, 13th February, 1908 at St John in Bedwardine Church, Worcester. Charles Hayward, 38 years old Widower. Address, 21 Skinner Street, St. Johns, Worcester. Occupation, General Dealer. Married, Fanny May (Jones) Hayward, 22 years old Spinster. Address, The Star Inn, Bransford Road, Worcester. Fathers, (Charles' father's name not given) John Lloyd Jones, Gardener. In the presence of, William and Agnes Reeves. Curate, Vivian C. Blyth.

They appear in the 1911 census, living at Acton Beauchamp, Worcestershire. Charles is aged 50, born in Little Cowerne, Herefordshire and his occupation is, *dealer marine store and own account. They have a daughter Norah Hayward, aged 1 and born in Worcester.


From the Census forms it appears that Emily and Charles never had children.

Emily died in the December qtr. 1906, Ledbury.

This was two years before Charles married again to Fanny May Jones on the 13th February, 1908, in St John's in Bedwardine, Worcester.

On the Marriage Certificate, he is said to be 38 years old. In the 1911 Census, which he would have filled out himself, he says that he is then 50 Years old ! Following the 1891 and 1901 census information he should have been 53 when he married and 56 on the 1911 Census. If this is right then by the time his last child was born (Doris Hayward) in 1920 he would have been 65 years old.

*I looked up dealer marine store and it means a scrap metal dealer.

Charles also uses 'own account' in both the 1901 (married to Emily) and 1911 (married to Fanny) census forms.
