Thanks for visiting our Hayes family website.
Welcome to this place where we can all share our family stories of this great pioneering farming couple and their descendants.
Mark and Maria HAYES arrived in Australia on 14th March 1851.
The descendants of Mark and Maria Hayes have spread all across Australia plus a few who have lived and worked overseas for a time. Most have remained in Victoria and there are still several families who have continued in the farming tradition.
Here is a place where we can remain in contact wherever we are.
The Committee has had the pleasure of getting to know an increasing number of members of the wider Hayes family from the various branches.
Please use this website as a place to connect with your relatives.
