Daniel Hayes, son of Patrick Hayes, was born in Limerick, Ireland and attended Trinity College Dublin and the Middle Temple. Hayes spent his adult life in London, where he was known for quarreling with any who cast aspersions on Ireland. He died young, with the reputation for wildness which gained him the name of "Buck" Hayes among his fellow students.
