1. Ancient Ancestors


King Richard II
Portrait at Westminster Abbey, mid-1390s

The Hayne Family has held a position of distinction and influence in Dorchester since the late 14th and early 15th century and was another of the old families who were later in the 17th century to strongly support the Rev. John White's efforts to establish a 'Godly Community' within the town. At this great distance in time it is unlikely that we will be able to clearly establish exact relationships between some of the earliest individuals but some key documentation still survives in the Visitations and Municipale Records of Dorchester which point to it being one Family, who like so many others at this time repeatedly named their children after themselves. I have listed below in chronological order the various documents so far located and as can be seen it is possible to tentatively draw a thread through these suggesting they were all very closely related. More documentation is held at the Dorset History Centre to which I do not currently have access and as I am about to move to Yorkshire I leave that for others to investigate.

1395: The earliest reference to a member of the HAYNE family actually living in Dorchester dates right the way back to the 18th year of the reign of Richard II which ran from 22 June 1394 to 21st June 1395. It can be found in the Municipal Records of Dorchester (MRD) under Charter 2 dated in May 1395 where reference can be found to a Robert HAYNE having a tenement on the north side of High West Street "which he had by the grant of Henry Raynold, son of John Raynald, of Dorchester, to hold of the King in capite, and by discharging for the said John and his heirs all the rents and services due from that tenement to the Fraternity of St. Mary in the church of St. Peter, of Dorchester".

1409: Fourteen years later (now in the 11th year of the reign of Henry IV) Charter 181 refers to a Richard HAYNE selling a tenement on the west side of High South Street, in Dorchester in Oct 1409

1409: Charter 238 records the purchase of a tenement on the west side of South Street in Dorchester by Richard HAYNE and his wife Alice in Dec 1409

1411: Two years later in Charter 205 is another reference to this Richard HAYNE owning a tenement on the north side of High West Street, which in all probability is the property owned by Robert HAYNE in 1395. Of later significance is the fact that next door but one is a property owned by John JURDAN Junior.

1413: Charter 244 is significant as it records The Will of Richard HAYNE as having been dated during the 1st year of the reign of Henry V on 4th July 1413, and it being proved before the Court on 6th Nov 1413. It also leaves his tenement on the west side of South Street, in Dorchester [i.e. Charter 238] to his wife Alice along with two other burgages in High West Street . It also records a son and heir Robert HAYNE. It seems likely therefore that the Robert HAYNE in Charter 2 is the father of Richard and therefore this Robert HAYNE's grandfather.

1418: Charter 313 make reference to a tenement on the north side of West Street, between the burgage of the late Richard HAYN on the west, and that of John JURDAN on the east,

1428: Charters 444 and 446 name a William HAYNE Clerk [Note:- the Rector of Bradford Peverell MRD 104] as one of 4 executors of John JURDAN of Wolverton's Will . The Jurdan family lived next door but one to Richard HAYNE see charters 238 and 313

1433: Charters 463 and 464 records William HAYNE Clerk buying a tenement on the south side of East Street

1449: Charter 495 records William HAYNE Clerk as being 'the late Rector of Bradford" [i.e. the parish of Bradford Peverell 3 miles north-west of Dorchester. Unfortunately church records for his career in the church have not survived]. His interest in a burgage granted to Matilda late wife of John Plays
[1450-1547] Note:- Not located any records during this 97 year gap, but the Will of William HAYNE of Ibberton in Dorset (transcribed at 1558 below) and who is recorded in the visitation of 1623 as the father of Richard and Thomas HAYNE died in Dorchester and was buried at St Peters church in 1558. This Will refers to Morgan HAYNE shown below as being his brother. Morgan HAYNE is not recorded in the 1623 Visitation as he died at Friar Wadden in Dorset and his will which is entirely written in Latin proved on 3rd May 1600. ]
1548: Charter 629 records Morgan HAYNE as already being one of the Capital Burgesses named in the Charter granted to Dorchester by Edward VI in the 2nd year of his reign i.e. 1548. He is reconfirmed as being a Capital Burgess in Charter 665 below in the year 1560.

1549: Charter 607 records Morgan HAYNE is a witness

1556: Charter 630 records Morgan HAYNE is a witness

1558: Municipal Records of Dorchester Page 491 records Morgan HAYNE's quarterly rent on his burgage in St Peters Parish as being 5 shillings and 10 pence. Also Wills at Fordington : Morgan HAYNE was named as an Overseer of the Will of Robert GOULD of Fordington on 14 Aug 1558.

1558:

    John CHUBB Silvestor HAYNE & Others

    Probate:- (Approximate translation) The above written Testament was heard at London on


    the 13th day in the month of December in the year of our Lord 1558 before Christopher? Robinson and administration granted to the executor named in the testament


1558/9: Municipal Records of Dorchester Page 703/4 is rather confusing as it records a conveyance to Morgan HAYNE and Cicely HAYNE Widow of 2½ acres of pasture which was late in the tenure of Oliver HAYNE deceased father of the said Morgan HAINE within the East Walls in St Peters Parish . The date recorded for the indenture has been given as 7th April in the 1st year of the reign of Elizabeth I which is more correctly transcribed as 7 Apr 1558/9 - as Elizabeth did not ascend to the throne until 17th Nov 1558. Towards the end is reference to 'Mr HAINES deed of Feoffment to Mr Denis Bond and William Derby' being endorsed. Two of the five the witnesses are then given as John WHITE and Robert CHEEKE. The date of 1558/9 is probably the date of the original indenture entered into by a member of the HAYNE Family and which had descended to his father Oliver HAYNE (1563-1622) who married circa 1589 to Cicely the daughter of William ADYN of Dorchester. Morgan HAYNE was their son and heir not born until c1592. What's more Dennis BOND was not born until 1588 and spent his youth abroad in France and Spain before settling in Dorchester around 1608. Robert Cheek arrived in Dorchester in 1595 and John White in 1606 so I think this is the confirmation of their right to the land passing to them jointly when Oliver HAYNE died in 1622.

1560: Charter 646 & 647 records Morgan HAYNE & John Palmer purchasing a property in All Saints Parish on the north side of East Street . Morgan Hayne is also a witness to Charter 653 dated 1560.

1560: Charter 665 reconfirms Morgan HAYNE to be one of the Capital Burgesses of Dorchester [See Charter 629 above in 1548.]

1563: Charter 649 appears to refer to the purchase of Friar Wadden Grange in Dorset from Hugh SAMWAYS by Richard Inkpen and Morgan HAYNE for the sum of £900 (2). This is probably how the property at Friar Wadden, which is referred to in the 1623 Visitation of Dorset (page 54) , descended to Thomas HAYNE brother of Richard HAYNE (See Section 2 below). The father of Richard and Thomas is recorded in the Visitation as William HAYNE of Ibberton and shows that he had married into the SAMWAYS Family.

1565: Municipal Records of Dorchester Page 39 Ratification of the Seals of Bailiffs, Constables as Burgesses of the Borough of Dorchester dated 22nd Sep 1565 by Wiliiam Hervy Clarencieulx King of Arms. Present is Morgan HAYNE one of the Capital Burgesses of Dorchester

1568/9: Bailiffs of Dorchester Morgan HAYNE served as Bailiff of Dorchester in the 11th year of the reign of Elizabeth I [17 Nov 1568 - 16 Nov 1569]

1569: Charter 636 records Morgan HAYNE is trying to recover rent due from John Chubb on property they own in Dorchester


1570:

    3. Richard HAYNE Mercer of St Peters Parish in Dorchester
    (Died abt March 1570)

    From the Visitation of Dorset made in the year 1623 we know that Richard Hayne was the son and heir of William HAYNE (1) of Ibberton in Dorset, a small village and parish nestling in the lee of Bulbarrow Hill on a tributary of the River Stour, 7 miles West of Blandford Forum. All it states about his mother is that her maiden name was SAMWAYS. William's Will in 1558 however confirms her name to have been Alice and that they also had 2 daughters Joane and Jane HAYNE. Unfortunately parish registers do not survive for Ibberton prior to 1761, but in all probability Richard was baptised in the parish church of St Eustachius around the year 1530. It also records that Richard was the eldest of at least two sons, his brother Thomas HAYNE leaving a son and heir of the same name who lived at Friar Waden in the parish of Portesham in Dorset. Thomas HAYNE Senior was according to his father's Will under the age of 21 in 1588.

    Richard married Alice HAYWARD around the year 1558 and settled in St Peter's parish in Dorchester to live where he traded as a mercer, or dealer in textile fabrics. From his Will dated in 1569 and transcribed below it is clear that he left three sons John, Oliver and William but only the first two are listed in the Visitation of Dorset so the assumption is that William died prior to 1623. The Visitation(1) also tells us that his heir John HAYNE (born about 1560) had died by 1623 without leaving any living issue, so his estate descended to his son Oliver HAYNE (1563-1622) of Dorchester.

    Will of Richard HAYNE
    Dated 24th August 1569 - Proved 18 Mar 1570 - PROB 11/52

4. Oliver HAYNE (1563-1622) Gentleman and
Capital Burgess of Dorchester


    Oliver HAYNE (1563-1622) was the second son of Richard HAYNE (d.1570) a Mercer of Dorchester and was elected to serve as Bailiff of Dorchester three times in the years 1602, 1607 and 1613. Because of the death of his elder brother, he became heir to his fathers estate sometime prior to 26th June 1610 when Charles 1st named him in his charter of that date as one of the original 15 Capital Burgesses of Dorchester. As one of the most senior Capital Burgess of Dorchester he was one of those that endorsed the appointment of Sir Frances Ashley as Recorder of Dorchester on 19th jan 1610/11 and also the bye laws introduced on 22nd Oct 1621 by the newly formed Company of Freemen.

    Oliver married circa 1589 to Cicely the daughter of William ADYN of Dorchester and had the following six children.

    (1) Mary Hayne born circa 1590 who married William PERKINS of Holton [Hilton] in Dorset prior to 1623

    (2) Morgan HAYNE (1592-?) Mercer of Dorchester ; Born about 1592 he matriculated at Hart Hall in Oxford on the 16th June 1610 when he was aged 18 (5).

They had 5 children together (as shown below ) before Rawlin died on 4th Sep 1627 (6). He was clearly a man of some influence and trust in Dorchester and on 4th Aug 1620 he is recorded in the Municipal Records of the town as holding money donated for use in the Hospital. Morgan Hayne's name is also written into the Constitutions of the Company of Freemen which were made on 22nd October 1621 as the first receiver of the company Freemen of Dorchester. He was elected Constable of Dorchester in 1623. The following year he was one of the original 119 investors in John White's ' Dorchester Co'; According to the visitation of Dorchester he moved to Newcastle-on-Tyne to live ; cousin to diarist William Whiteway (1599-1635);

    DEATH: According to William Whiteway the Younger's diary (which records his daily life in Dorchester between 1618 and 1635) Mr Oliver HAYNE Alderman of Dorchester died on 13th December 1622. His place as Alderman was taken by Mr John BLATCHFORD who was duly sworn in at sessions on 3rd January 1623. His memorial plaque in St Peter's church in Dorchester (reproduced below) suggests it was the day before, but adds the fact that he was aged 59 years.

(2). Probate of the Will of Morgan HAYNES of Fryar Waddon in Dorset [referred to in the 1623 Visitation of Dorset as 'Ffrier Waden'] was granted on 3rd May 1600 (available to view on ancestry.com under prerogative Court of Canterbury PROB 11/95). Fryer Waddon Farm is in Portesham Dorset and 19th century documents survive at the National Archives. Morgam Hayne's will is written entirely in Latin but referts to both Thomas HAYNE and Oliver HAYNE but needs proper translation to ascertain relationships etc.
