[This part of Church Street no longer exists, it was demolished to accomodate an enlargement of St Nicholas graveyard] He died 10 June 1871, aged 66, at his home. His estate, valued at under £200 was probated 4 July 1871, with his wife as executor.
The Baptisms of their twelve children are recorded at St. Nicholas, Brighton, on 2 August 1849.
Dorothy Jamison writes-
"The photo of the gravestone was taken in Brighton. The parent's of these deceased children, Thomas Francis Jr. and Helen Hayward lived there, where Tom was a grocer. This Thomas Francis was the son of Thomas Francis Hayward, Sr. and Ann Evershed of Petworth. At least these 5 of their 12 children died young. Many of them were baptised at St. Nicholas in Brighton, so the gravestone might be there also. I know nothing about the rest."
