ELDER William HATCH (William, Thomas, John the Younger, Thomas, Thomas, John), of Ashford, Wye, and Sandwich, co. Kent, and of Scituate in the Plymouth Colony, woollen draper and merchant, born about 1598, died at Scituate 6 Nov. 1651. He probably married first ;* and secondly, probably at Thanington, near Canterbury, co. Kent, by licence of 9 July 1624, Jane YOUNG of Thanington, born about 1596, who married secondly, at Scituate, 31 Mar. 1653, Elder Thomas King of Scituate (who succeeded William Hatch in the office of elder), and died at Scituate 8 Oct. 1653. Her parentage has not yet been discovered, but it is likely that Edward Young of Thanington, husbandrnan, one of the bondsmen on the marriage licence, was her kinsman, perhaps her brother.

About 1634 William Hatch and his family removed from Wye to Sandwich, Co. Kent, The statement that he was at Scituate in the Plymouth Colony in 1633 is incorrect, and is due to the assumption that the date after the names of the assistants in the records applied to all the names following. He embarked for America for the first time in Mar. 1634/5, sailing from Sandwich in the ship Hercules with his wife Jane, five children, and six servants. In the same ship sailed his cousin, Lydia (Huckstep) Tilden (7,1, 7), with her husband Nathaniel Tilden, and their children. William Hatch and his family settled at Scituate, where he built a house on Kent Street and was admitted freeman on 5 Jan. 1635/6. He returned to England, but came back to New England in Apr. 1638, in the ship Castle. It is probable that his brother Thomas (10) with his wife and children and his sister Elizabeth Soan (12) with her son William came with him on this voyage. In 1643 William Hatch was chosen the flr~t ruling elder of the Second Church of Scituate, and in August of that year he with his sons Walter and John appears on the list of those in Scituate able to bear arms (that is, they were between 16 and 60 years of age). In the same year also he was lieutenant of the trainband

William Hatch

William Hatch, a resident of Sandwich, Kent, sailed for New England in 1635 on the Hercules. Upon arrival he settled in Scituate, where he resided until his death in 1651. He brought with him his second wife and five children, two other children having died in England prior to the family s migration. The town of Scituate granted him the usual course of land distributions.

Beyond these basics,William Hatch in some respects seemed to reflect the norm of the middle of the middle stratum. He became a freeman soon after arrival and served in several offices, including participation on grand and petit juries. He was, in fact, a little above the norm, in that he was in 1642 and again in 1645 Deputy from Scituate to the Plymouth Colony General Court, and in 1643 he was appointed Lieutenant of the Scituate trainband.

Were this the totality of what the surviving records had to tell us about William Hatch, we would account him a solid but unremarkable New England immigrant. But in addition to the details of his life which have been outlined above, we find also a steady stream of other notices of this man which tell us a different story.

The very first entry in the volume of "Judicial Acts of the General Court and Court of Assistants" of Plymouth Colony, dated January 3, 1636/7, was a law suit against William Hatch, instituted by Comfort Starr in a case of debt, the jury finding for the plaintiff This judgment in itself was not remarkable, but, as will be seen, was a portent of things to come. Barely six months later, on June 7, 1637, "whereas William Hatch, of Scituate, is presented for an incroachment upon a piece of ground on this side the river without license of this Court, it is therefore enacted by this Court that the said William Hatch shall reap the crop this year only, and leave the land, which is the mulct laid upon him for his presumption therein."

Not long after these events, Hatch returned to England, and then sailed again for New England on the Castle, bringing with him his brother Thomas and his family.While on this voyage,William Hatch formed a partnership with Thomas Ruck and Joseph Merriam to handle the affairs of the voyage. In August 1639, a year after this transatlantic passage, Ruck and Merriam sued Hatch, claimed he did "overreckon, misreckon, account short & mischarge" various items in the accounts.

Two years later, on September 7, 1641 ,Williani Hatch was accused of stating publicly that "the warrants sent from the governor were nothing but stinking commissary warrants. Finally, on March 5, 1643/4, the Court took notice of a dispute between Hatch and his servant Hercules, regarding the length of service of the latter. Very few men were so frequently recorded in so many forms of disagreeable behavior. Even so, throughout this period, William Hatch continued to hold offices at the colony and town level. His peers and neighbors clearly valued his skills and abilities highly enough to set aside his apparent antisocial behavior, but he may have been skating very close to the edge.

The surname Heywood is distinct from Haywood, Hayward and Howard, although the spelling of each in every possible way makes it difficult not to confuse the families, especially where Heywards, Howards and Heywoods were living in the same town. The derivation of the name Heywood is given in a pedigree prepared by Peter John Heywood, of Whitehaven, England, in 1781, and published in “Hunter's Life and Times of Oliver Heywood,” who was a non-conformist clergyman of note in the days of Charles I. The pedigree runs back to the year 1164, a period when sur­names were beginning to come into use in the mother country. The earliest authentic document containing the name of Heywood, or its prototype, is a title deed still preserved for a tract of land in Lancashire, from one Adame de Burgo or de Bury, who held the Knight's fee to a large section of territory in the vicinity to Peter de Ey-wood, that is “of wooded island.” The latter was the reputed founder of the Heywood family in England, from which the American family is descended. This estate remained in the possession of the descendants of Peter Heywood more than five hundred years, or until 1717, when Robert Heywood sold it to John Starkey of Rochdale, whose grandson, James Starkey, dying intestate, allowed the place to pass into the hands of the Crown. It is now an attractive public park, having been donated for that purpose by Queen Victoria. The English line from this Peter Heywood is traced in an unbroken line to the emigrant in America. James and John Heywood, both about twenty-two years old, brothers, came together in the ship, “Planter,” in 1636. They were both certified from Stepney Parish, London. James Heyvood settled in Charlestown, and later went to Woburn, where he died November 20, 1642.

John Heywood of Concord, Massachusetts
Compiled by Frieda Heywood Massara

It is presumed that he must have been married before his marriage to Rebecca, because the founders of Concord frowned upon unmarried men. No such record has been found. He was 44 at the time of his marriage to Rebecca, which was quite old for first marriage in those days. Perhaps he lived in another community before he came to Concord, however, according to "The Social Circle Memoirs" 1st series Page 112, John Heywood came to Concord before 1650 and was one of the first settlers of the town.

John kept an ordinary (inn) for which he had a license. According to the book, "Concord in Colonial Times" by C.H. Walcott published in 1884, Page 139, John Heywood "was allowed to keep a house of entertainment for strangers, for lodging and to sell beer and cider." The year was 1670. In 1672, John renewed his license and had liberty to retail strong waters to the travelers and sick people.

John took the Freeman's Oath in 1670.

13 June 1676, John was made a Constable of Concord.

He is mentioned as an heir to part of the estate of William Allan, who married Susanna Atkinson, widow of Thomas Atkinson. His wife's sisters Susanna and Hannah Atkinson were the other heirs.

Cutler and Adams in their "Genealogies and Personal Memoirs", Vol. III, Page 1820 mention a third wife, Priscilla; however, I have found nothing to substantiate this.

Origens of the Name:
Hayward, Heyward:
"The original duties of the hayward seem to have been to protect the fences round the Lammas lands when enclosed for hay, hence his name (OE) hegeweard 'guardian of the fence or hedge'. This...was a dead hedge easily erected and removed, forming an enclosure (OE [ge]haeg) from which, to judge from the early and regular variation between heiward and haiward, and from his more general duties or preventing cattle from breaking through into the enclosed fields and growing crops, the hayward seem also to have been called (ge)haegweard 'enclosure-protector'.

In the Parish Register of Horringer (Suffolk) c1670-80 Hayward is regularly written Howard, and in the Walthamstow Toni court-rolls from 1678 to 1882 the marshbaley is often called the hayward or howard, so that some of our Howards were probably Haywards."

Haywood, Heywood, Heawood, Highwood:
"From Haywood (UK: Hereford, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire) or Heywood (UK: Lancashire, Wiltshire) or from numerous minor places."
