      FOOTE, RICHARD, (1666-1724), of Stafford County, nephew of Nicholas Hayward, developer of the Brent Town speculation in the Northern Neck Proprietary. Foote's father was one of Hayward's partners, and a successful merchant in London. The son lived in the Brent Town tract, and represented the owners in Virginia.


      Richard Foote, born in London 31 January, 1666, was, himself, the son of a Richard Foote, born 10 August 1632, in Cardenham,Cornwall, England. The first Richard Foote left Cornwall for London at an early age and went to work for the London firm of Nicholas Hayward, factor, (sometimes called "grocer"), agent in England for several wealthy Virginia planters, among them, William Fitzhugh. The first Richard Foote married, 19 Dec 1657, Hester Hayward, daughter of Nicholas Hayward. They had fourteen children, of whom Richard II was the third son. Nicholas Hayward had six children, Nicholas, Hester, Samuel, Edward, Joseph and a daughter. Nicholas, the son, (24 Mar 1639-ca. 1698) took over his father's London firm. Samuel (ca. 1641-1696) moved to Stafford Co. Va. where he served as County Clerk. He married Martha Washington, great aunt of George Washington, mentioned in his diary as "Aunt Hayward." They had one daughter who died unmarried. Edward remained in London and succeeded his brother Nicholas on the latter's death in 1698. Joseph came to Virginia where he died suddenly in 1691 leaving no children. The daughter also came to Virginia, where she married Samuel Todd.
