Charles Frederick Hayter 1826-1921

From the Francis Hayter Album

Case Study: Charles Frederick Hayter



Charles Frederick Hayter was the 4th child of Goodenough Hayter & Emma neé Chilton. Charles was born on the 23 Jul 1826 in Muswell Hill, North London and baptised on the 16 Sep 1826 at St Mary’s Church in Hornsey. He went to Oxford College where he matriculated from Magdalen Hall in 1847 aged 20, he earned himself a BA in 1852 and an MA in 1858, he then went onto become the Rector of East Mersea in Essex and finally the Vicar of Claybrooke, Northants from 1871. His older brother, George Goodenough Hayter also went to Oxford where he matriculated from Brasenose College in 1838 aged 17, he went on to become the Vicar of Burnham Overy in Norfolk. George is mentioned in the album but there is no photo, there was one of his wife Mary but again the photo is missing.



This photo possibly taken while he was at Oxford and before he wore a dog collar, although I must say he doesn’t look to be younger than he is in the first photo!

In 1866, at age 40, Charles married 26 yr old Mary Curtois, daughter of Peregrine & Mary Curtois. Charles & Mary didn’t have any children, according to the 1911 census when Charles said he had none. Mary had earlier died in 1893, Charles lived to the good age of 94 when he died on the 10 Apr 1921 at Leslie Lodge in Worthing, West Sussex. The probate of his will went to his neice Anna Catharine Druce, the daughter of Charles’ sister Anna Susan Druce who had also been living at Leslie Lodge, Worthing when she died in 1919.
