Few details about Hayls’s life are known.  He was a contemporary and rival of Sir Peter Lely and relative of the miniaturist, Samuel Cooper.  His most famous work is his portrait of diarist Samuel Pepys, in the National Portrait Gallery, London and there are numerous references to Hayls in Pepys's Diary pertaining to his sittings in 1666.
