Mary Ann Hayward [nee Dent] (c.1868 – 9 August 1931)
Mary was born in Cambridge and was the daughter of George and Caroline Dent – she appears to have been known as Pollie through her life. Her father was a smith, and her mother a college bedmaker. She grew up at 32 Park Street  and later at 98 King Street [1881/1891]. She married Daniel Hayward in 1891. Pollie and Daniel had two children: Hilda Mary Martin [1895-1978] and another child who died as an infant.
They lived at 44 Panton Street  and Daniel was a professional cricketer at this time. By 1911 they were living at 5 Gresham Road, The University Cricket Ground and Daniel was working as the custodian of the University grounds. Pollie died at the cricket grounds in 1931 aged 63 years old.
Daniel Martin Hayward (11 December 1865 – 2 February 1953)
Daniel was the son of Daniel and Emma Hayward, brother of renown Surrey cricketer Tom Hayward, younger brother of Arthur Hayward, and part of the famous Hayward cricket dynasty. He was born in Cambridge and grew up at the Prince Regent, on Regent Street. His father Daniel [known as Dan] combined being a professional cricketer with running a pub. Just prior to marrying Pollie Dent he was working as an athletic outfitter assistant. By 1901 he was working as a professional cricketer, and from c.1907 onwards he worked as custodian of the University Cricket Ground.
He was still working as custodian when his wife died in 1931, and in 1939 was living with only daughter Hilda and her family at 191 Huntingdon Road. He died at Huntingdon Road in 1953 aged 87 years old.
