Notes for Thomas HAYDEN

Thomas Hayden came to Northumberland County, Ontario in 1853 says the Historical atlas of
Northumberland and Durham Counties. Specifically, it says "Thomas Hayden, Post Office Port
Hope, occupation foundry, a native of Canada, settled 1853!" It does not say where he was from
in Canada.

Our Haydens came from Wicklow County Ireland from the Fitzwilliam Estates,and came to
Canada on May 19 1848 on the ship Jessie and settled in Kingston Ontario. John Hayden,a
brother of Thomas later went to Alexandria,Glengarry county. He fought in the American civil
war.He is buried in St. Finians.

Thomas was on the Port Hope town council. -A new foundry was built on Cavan Street in
1871where the "Hayden Plough" was made and sold to farmers in the area. The home was on
Cavan St. as well. He had a schooner the albatross, which in 1881 which most likely suffered in
a storm in may of that year! The family were Wesylan Methodist!

It seems there were 2 Thomas Haydens!

The 1857 assessment roll for Port Hope says a Thomas Hayden had a residence on Elgin St.-The
name is spelled Haddon, and it says he was a laborour. Also the assessment roll of the same year
says a Thomas Haddon had property on concession one, lot 15, with 50 acres.

The 1857 city directory of Port Hope mentions Thomas Hayden, moulder, business on Cavan St!

In the old Methodist cemetery was buried a Thomas Hayden according to an 1877 newspaper
article in the Port Hope Guide, October 18..-The cemetery was vandalized in 1877, and later was
a playground. -In the 1930's a number of remains of this old cemetery were placed in a memorial
spot in the union cemetery .So, who is this Thomas Hayden? -(See above for other info)

In 1881, January, the old home on Cavan St suffered a fire at the hands of an 18 month old baby
who was barely saved from the blaze! -Thankfully, the house was not burned completely. I
wonder who the baby was?. -To thank the fire company, Thomas Hayden donated money for a
fireman's supper held in the old queen's hotel in march of that year!
The 1861 Port Hope census gives the age of Tomas as 26, so he may have been born in the

Thomas married Matilda Ada Wallace on March 27, 1857. -The WALLACE family were
blacksmith's too!

John Hayden son of Thomas had property in the Snowden Settlement in Manitoba says an article
in the Port Hope Guide, November 18,1881.

There was a Hayden printing company in Alberta .

I have been told we had a UEL connection somewhere, but I have found nothing so far.

There were other Haydens living in the area , but none are related. There was another Hayden
family who settled in Cobourg , Hamilton Township, in 1835. They were from Yorkshire,
England and are mentioned in the book" Early Cobourg" by Percy Climo! William Hayden and
his large family, who was a Congregationalist Minister, settled there. -Ten years later they
moved to Cold Springs. -William, Jane, and children John, Margaret, Joseph, Mary Ellen,
Isobel? were the family members.

Also according to some census returns there were Haydens in Murray Township. -The 1851
census mentions some Haydens from Ireland. Roman Catholic, and some English Church
(Methodist). Martin Hayden blacksmith, age 23 is mentioned, along with Ann Hayden age 50 -
Lydia Ann Hayden age 52. A.W. Hayden, age 16, maybe around our Thomas's age! Also
Edward Hayden, age 56 born Ireland, on concession B lot 13.

The 1851 Brighton census mentions Ellen Hayden age 42 living with Patrick Egan, mason, age
40, mason.


RESIDENTS. A MEMBER OF THE I.O.O.F. The oldest active businessman of Port hope died
last night at the family residence, Cavan Street, in the person of Mr. Thomas Hayden. Of the
family there remain, his wife and five sons, John C of the Standard Ideal Company of this town;
William W. druggist of Buffalo; Reginald and Sherwood who have been associated with their
father in business here, and Charles A. of the Montreal Herald.

Mr. Hayden had been in ill health for over a year, but had only been confined to bed at intervals
and recently had improved so much that he was able to attend to business with all the acumen
which distinguished him in his career in this town. He was about as usual on Saturday, and to
those whom, he met seemed physically stronger than in months. On Sunday, however, he
complained that he felt unwell, but rallied and Monday morning was able to leave his bed and
read the newspapers. Towards evening he was stricken down and never rallied, becoming
unconscious - Tuesday morning, when the attending physician, Dr. Aldrich, informed the
members of the family that the end was only a matter of a short time and accordingly the sons in
Buffalo and Montreal were summoned by telegraph and arrived yesterday. In the afternoon he
partially regained consciousness and was able to recognize his wife and sons, but soon lapsed
into an unconscious state and passed peacefully away about 8 o'clock.

The deceased was born in Kingston, Ontario, and had reached the ripe age of 82 years and two
months. Fifty-one years ago lst March he was married to Matilda Wallace, who survives him.
She was the daughter of the late Clarke Wallace. Besides the widow and sons and nearly a score
of grand children, a brother, Mr. John Hayden of Alexandria, Ont., and a sister, Mrs. Hugh
Doyle, of Kingston, Ont., mourn the death of the subject of this notice.

Deceased, as has been stated, was the oldest active business man in Port Hope, having located
here in 1851, coming from Belleville. He made the castings for the Midland Railway, which was
then in the course of construction, for the late Archibald Porter, doing the work in the old
foundry at the rear of the Curtis block. He started in business for himself in 1855, in a wooden
shop on their site of the present foundry, and he was one of the promoters and largest
shareholders of the "car shops" on Ontario Street. About that time he was actively interested in
municipal affairs and was a member of the Council and of the Harbor Board.

He was engaged in the coal business some ten or fifteen years prior to 1882, and also in the lake
carrying trade, owning the ill-fated Albatross, which was totally wrecked on the Wellington
Sounds near Pickton.

After disposing of the coal business in 1882 he again entered the foundry business and started
manufacturing plows and other agricultural implements, and in 1903 he again established a coal
business in connection with the foundry. Mr. Hayden was of an inventive turn of mind, and had
patented the box bearings for twin plow axles, now in general use, and a steel plow point which
has not yet been placed on the market.

The late Mr. Hayden was also one of the oldest members of the Independent Order of
Oddfellows in Canada, having joined in on March 11, 1873. A few years ago the Order presented
him with a beautiful veteran's Jewel for twenty-five years continuous membership. The funeral
will take place under the auspices of the Order and will be held on Friday afternoon at three
o'clock. AYDENS

 Three generations are buried in the Union Cemetery of Port Hope. The family had a foundry on
Cavan Street in Port Hope where the "Hayden Plough" was made and sold to farmers in the area.
Thomas HAYDEN (1826-1908), the senior member of the family, married Matilda WALLACE
(d. 1918) and gave issue to three children: Reginald (1875-195x), Charles (b. 1877) and John.
John married and had a son, Sherwood, and a daughter, Marion. Reginald married Linda Mary
SHORTT (1876-1948) at Hastings on 1 January 1900. This union resulted in five children:
Carrie (b. 1900), Robert (b. 1907) who had a son and two daughters, Isobel (b. 1912), Josephine
who was a nurse and died young, and Charles Edwin "Pat". In 1924 "Pat" married Jeane Anne
Winnifred McINTOSH and gave issue to 12 children.

from Bill Barone:
Winnie Hayden and Edith Hayden (Bills mother) went to visit Thomas in Port Hope and while at
the blacksmith shop they played in a sand box. The sand box was where Thomas had set up his
sand molds to be poured the next day. After that Winnie and Edith could not visit Thomas
together, they had to one at time.
