Hon. Beza Hayward was the son of Nathan
and Susanna (Latham) Hayward; born in
Bridgewater, Mass., January 20, 1752;
graduated at Harvard College in 1772;
studied divinity, but never was settled.
Much of his early life was spent in
preparing young men for college and
teaching school for the higher branches
of education.
He represented his native town in the
General Court; afterward elected Senator
for Plymouth County, and afterwards became
a member of the Executive Council.
Patriotism, public virtue and love of order
were eminent traits of his character. He
possessed a peculiar tact for mathematical
calculations, and was very reliable, in the
results of his labors, when for months he
was engaged on committees of valuation in
the Legislature.
In 1808 he was appointed Register of Probate
for the county of Plymouth, which office he
sustained till his death. In all the public
positions to which he was called he was much
respected for probity, strict integrity and
impartial justice, and under bereavement the
virtues of meekness, humility and pious
resignation were graciously exemplified in
his demeanor.
He married 1st Abigail daughter of Col.
Briggs and Mercy (Wadsworth) Alden of
Duxbury, Mass., November 1784 by whom he
had John Alden 1788, and Beza. His wife
died 1800. He then married Experience
daughter of Ichabod and Priscilla Shaw,
and widow of James Russell, of Plymouth,
and had Charles Latham, John Shaw, and
Susanna, 1805.
