  • Notes 
    • Also spelled Haines or Hayne.

      Emigrated in 1638 with wife Elizabeth and daughter Sufferance [Sufferana], on the Confidence out of Southampton, the same ship as Peter Noyes.

      Professional linen weaver.

      His first home was turned into a fort in the siege of Sudbury during King Phillip's War. The house stood for two centuries thereafter. An original painting of the house is reproduced in Hudson's History of Sudbury, page 224.

      From the Sudbury Archives:

      WALTER HAYNES (HAYNE or HAINE) came to America from England on the ship "Confidence," in 1638. He was a freeman May 13, 1641. He represented the town in the General Court in the years 1641, '44, '48 and '51, and was a selectman ten years. Mr. Haynes was probably one of the first grantees to erect a house on the west side of the river, which house was probably the "Haynes Garrison." He died February 14, 1665. In his will, Thomas is mentioned as being away from home, and Sufferance as being the wife of Josiah TREADWAY, and Mary as the wife of Thomas NOYES. One piece of property disposed of in his will was a tenement is Shaston, Dorsetshire, England.

      [Note: The will says only that Sufferance was the wife of someone named Treadway, not that he was named Josiah. Ella F. Elliot, NEHGR 65:295, 1911, demonstrated that her Treadway husband was in fact Nathaniel.]
