Second son of Robert Francis Hayward of Vancouver, British Columbia and Alfreda Hayward, daughter of the Reverend Frederick Toulmin. He had three brothers, two of whom also came to Kingsgate House – Gerald Baldwin Hayward (K 1918-1923) and Henry O’Brien Frederick Hayward (K 1926-1931) who died of polio whilst serving with the Royal Buckinghamshire Yeomanry in 1943. Edward Hayward came to Winchester from Copthorne School: he played for Lords in 1915 and was Captain of his House cricket team.

 

On leaving Winchester he passed into RMA Woolwich and then into the Royal Field Artillery, joining the British forces at Salonika where he was killed on December 20th 1916.
