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. Thomas Hayden wife's maiden name is not known at this time. However, his land was never recorded under a Crown Land grant in the Hayden name, so it is possible the property may have been inherited from his wife's family.
Present Status: This family surname has disappeared from Calvert over the past decade or so, but there are descendants at Ferryland and in other parts of Newfoundland. The Haydens of Cape Broyle are an unrelated family whose ancestor moved there from Harbour Grace, Conception Bay.
