Thrilled to discover a fellow Haward/Jeaffreson etc researcher - from what you have told me it is clear that we can be of mutual help. Indeed, you have already helped by putting a Christian name to the Hayward who married Martha Sherman. I have only recently made the Hayward connection back toStowmarket and to the Sherman family, using the newly published index to the Freemen of Ipswich, but was lacking the full name of this particular man. Did you know that there is a published history of the Sherman Family ("Transatlantic Shermans" by Bertha L. Stratton), a copy of which is available at the Society of Genealogists. I have a great deal of information about the various ancestors of Sarah Haward, wife of Hayward Haward (Jeaffreson), and will e-mail you with some of this. Incidentally, although these are my husbands ancestors, he and I are related via Stephen Haward's second wife, Elizabeth Hicks. Her father, Joseph, was brother to my ancestor Robert Hicks.
