Family History: Thomas Hayden was one of the latecomers from Ireland to Newfoundland. He settled at Caplin Bay, in the Deep Cove area, on the south side of the bay. We know that Thomas Hayden's wife's forename was Margaret, but her maiden surname is not known. Since his land was never recorded under a Crown Land grant or recorded in a deed under the Hayden name, it was possibly inherited from his unnamed wife's family.
Present Status: This family surname has disappeared from Calvert over the past couple of decades, but there are descendants at Ferryland and in other parts of Newfoundland. The Haydens of Cape Broyle is an unrelated family whose ancestor moved there from Harbour Grace, Conception Bay.
