Hayward, Edward Waterfield (1841–1903)

The announcement of the death of Mr. Edward Waterfield Hayward, managing director of John Martin & Co., Limited, which occurred on Monday night, will be received with deep regret by mercantile men and others who knew the deceased gentleman. Mr. Harvard had never taken a prominent part in political or municipal fields of activity, but for 40 years he had been engaged in the busiest thoroughfare of the city, for most of the time as a principal, and few men were better known. His high commercial integrity gained for him esteem, and his genial, sociable qualities made him popular with all his friends. Mr. Hayward was born at Brighton, Sussex, England, on November 1, 1841. He came to South Australia in the Indus in 1863, and at once went into the warehouse of Messrs. G. & R. Wills & Co. He remained there until 1876, when he joined the late Mr. John Martin in business in Rundle atreet. The firm of Messrs. John Martin and Co. ultimately became a limited liability company, with Mr. Hayward as managing director. Mr. Hayward married a daughter of the late Charles Giles, of Grove Hill, Magill, and there are four sons, Messrs. C. W. (of Messrs. Henderson and Hayward). F. E. (a managing director), and A. D. (a director of John Martin and Co.), and E. W. Hayward (who is engaged in the London house of the firm). Mr. Hayward during recent years made several trips to England. He returned from the last one on May 4 last in indifferent health, and gradually becoming worse. He died peacefully on Monday night.
