Arthur Hayball was born in Tudor Street, Little Sheffield (now Thomas Street) in September 1822, the second son of Thomas and Mary Hayball. His father was a joiner and builder who helped construct a number of buildings including Banner Cross Hall and St Philip's Church. Arthur Hayball spent much time as a child in the joiner's shop. Following an accident he broke his leg and during his convalescence, his father gave him some pieces of waste wood to carve. From then on, much of his spare time was spent learning wood carving. At the age of 16 he left school and joined his father in the woodworking shop at 60 Rockingham Street.
