"John Hayes" was a pseudonym of Edward Henry Fletcher. Fletcher was born in Hammersmith on the 23rd July 1857 (some sources say 1851). He was the son of a Bengal river pilot, and having spent his early years in India, the family returned to England while he was still a boy. He was educated at the Christ`s Hospital and later at the Chelsea School of Art where he became a close friend of Daniel Sherrin, the landscape artist.

After his marriage, Fletcher lived in Blackheath and owned a small Auction House. At about forty, he suffered a serious illness and gave up the business to become a professional painter, having previously painted as a hobby.
