Emma Hayward [nee Martin] (28 September 1836 – 7 October 1903)
Emma was born in Cambridge and was the daughter of Richard and Sarah Martin. Her father was a flyman [carriage owner] and publican and she grew up at 43 St Andrews Street. In 1861 she was 24 years old, and was described on the census of that year as a ‘fly proprietor’. She married Daniel Hayward at St John the Baptist Church in Shoreditch on 18th June 1862. They had six children: Arthur [1864-1904], Daniel Martin [1865-1953], Emma Martin [ 1867-1925], Alice [1869-1925], Thomas Walter [1871-1939], and Frank [1881-1929].
The family lived at the Prince Regent on Regent Street, where Daniel combined being a professional cricketer with running a pub. She died at the Prince Regent aged 67 years old.
Daniel Hayward (19 October 1832 – 30 May 1910]
Daniel was born in Chatteris, was the son of Daniel and Eliza Hayward and sister of Emma. His father was a professional cricketer and gardener, and his brother Tom (1871-1939) was a very famous cricketer of his time. Tom partnered with Bob Carpenter to help build Cambridgeshire into one of the leading county teams.
Daniel was a professional cricketer like his father and brother, and also landlord of the Prince Regent from June 1868 onwards. He ran the Prince Regent for 42 years, and in newspapers of the time the venue was described as Prince Regent/Haywards, so synonymous was the family with the pub. He was ‘a cricketer of more than average ability, but his achievements seem to have been out-shone by the more lasting brilliance of the batting of his older brother Tom’.
His sons became cricketers – the most famous being Tom Hayward [Jnr], Daniel Martin became the custodian of the Cambridge University Cricket ground and his grandsons also played cricket.
Daniel established an annual Hayward Charity Match which was played on Parkers Piece and raised money for local causes. In September 1906 a crowd of c.10,000 gathered to see the four hour match. Daniel’s son Tom had brought at team of 13 to Cambridge including Lord Dalmeny, the Surrey Captain and Jack Hobbs. The opposing local team was captained by Daniel Hayward. The Cambridge Independent Press reported that the 1906 match had raised the largest amount so far with takings of £61, 14s and 6d. Lord Dalmeny contributed another £5, and the autographed bat which Tom Hayward had used for the match was expected to sell for a further £50. Over the years the Hayward Charity Match raised funds for Addenbrookes Hospital and the Cambridge and District Nursing Association
For the last five months of his life Daniel Hayward was bed-bound with illness, and died at the Prince Regent aged 77 years old.
Emma Martin Stubbings [nee Hayward] (6 March 1867 -31 October 1925)
Emma was the eldest daughter of Daniel and Emma Hayward. She grew up at the Prince Regent and was still living at home in 1901 aged 34 years old. She married Ernest Edwin Stubbings [1879-1931] in 1903. They had at least one daughter: Maisie Alice Hayward [1903-1982]. In 1911 the family were living at 5 Humberstone Road. Ernest Stubbings worked at the University and was the superintendent of the Medical School. Emma died at Humberstone Road aged 58 years old.
Alice Hayward (19 February 1869 – 14 September 1925)
Alice was the younger daughter of Daniel and Emma Hayward. After her parents death she was a housekeeper to her two brothers Tom and Frank at the Prince Regent . She appears to have helped her brother run the Prince Regent, and died a spinster aged 56 years old.
