More About the Hayhoe Family

Robert Hayhoe was buried in Swaffham on 22nd October 1838.  The entry for the burial in the Parish Records states that he was 82 years of age, which gives him an approximate birth year of 1754.  I have found no record of a Robert Heyhoe being born in Swaffham around that time but have found 2 baptisms enties in Parish Records, eithe rof which could be the aforementioned Robert.

The entry I favour is for the parish of Mattishall, Norfolk : 30th September 1754 Robert son of Rob and Sarah Hoyhow.  The birth year is correct and the family names fit.

The other entry is for the parish of Hingham, Norfolk: 31st March 1751, Robert son of Thomas Heyhoe.

This Robert was the son of Thomas Heyhoe and his second wife Frances Spurn.
