  • Notes 
    • James Haynes was born in Sudbury, MA on March 17, 1660/61. He was the eighth child of John Haynes and Dorothy Noyes, daughter of Peter Noyes, and grandson of Walter Haynes. James married, in Sudbury, Sarah Noyes of the same town. There are contradictory records of the date of the marriage, it was either November 21, 1689, or December 21, 1690. Sarah was born in Sudbury on September 28, 1669, the daughter of Joseph Noyes and Mary Darnell or Darvell. Sarah was not a descendant of the Peter Noyes who is so often linked with Walter Haynes in the history of Sudbury. Her father was of the Newbury Noyes clan, but a link between that family and the family of Peter Noyes, back in England, has been established.

      James was a defender at the Haynes Garrison House during King Philip's War. He was a farmer, and a deacon in the church at Sudbury from 1706 to 1715. James contracted to build a new meeting house for Sudbury. He was to be paid in merchantable Indian corn, peas, beef, pork and malt. James and Sarah had seven children. James died in Sudbury on October 15, 1732, and is buried in the old cemetery, called the Revolutionary War Cemetery, at Sudbury. Sarah died on September 13, 1756, but her death is not recorded in Sudbury vital records.
