On 16 Feb. 1758 he unsuccessfully applied to Newcastle to make his brother dean of Gloucester: ‘I have attended the service of my country with great assiduity for one whole Parliament and half another, which may be presumed to have some merit, nor have I troubled your Grace before.’2 Hayward did not stand again in 1761.
