Herbery Hayman was a capital hard-hitting bat and excellent outfield, he began to assist Middlesex in 1893, and in all matches for the county made 3,518 runs with an average of 25. His highest scores for the side were 152 v. Yorkshire at Lord's in 1896 and 110 v. Gloucestershire on the same ground in 1901: in the former game he made 218 for the first wicket with A. E. Stoddart and in the latter 200 with P. F. Warner. Against Kent at Catford in 1898 he carried his bat through the innings for 104, and twice at The Oval - in 1896 and 1901 - took part in the Gentlemen v. Players match. For the Hampstead CC, for whom he played with Stoddart, Spofforth and other first-class cricketers, he did some remarkable things. When the club made 273 for two wickets in 95 minutes v Eltham, at Hampstead in 1901, he and B. Everett took the total from 100 to 178 in 20 minutes; on that occasion he carried out his bat for 164, at one period of his innings making eight 4's and a 6 in successive scoring hits. Four years later, also on the Hampstead ground, he made 201, run out, after Upper Tooting had declared at 377 for 7, leaving the home side two and a half hours in which to bat. In that time 348 were made for the loss of four men, Hayman, hitting three 6's and thirty 4's, and obtaining his runs in 80 minutes.
