      Joan Hayward was the daughter of Sir Rowland Hayward or Heyward (c.1520-1593), a clothworker who was Lord Mayor of London in 1570, and Joan Tillesworth (d.1580). In February 1576 she married John Thynne (c.1551-November 21,1604). Their children were Thomas, Dorothy, Christian, and John. From 1580 until 1604, Joan was mistress of Longleat House, one of the great mansions of Elizabethan England. After that she lived primarily at Caus Castle in Shropshire.... As a widow, she managed her own affairs and added a lead mine to her holdings. ... Biography: Oxford DNB entry under “Thynne [née Hayward], Joan;” Alison D.
