In March 1679, if not before, he acted La Marre and spoke the epilogue to The Ambitious Statesman. On 14 April he was given a protection warrant and went off to Edinburgh. Joe was not the only King's Company player to leave for the north; among other deserters were James Gray, Cardell Goodman, Philip Griffin, Thomas Clark, Mrs Corey, and Joe's mistress, Mrs Knepp (Pepys's old friend). Haines was still in Edinburgh as late as 20 January 1682. The second prologue to Ravenscroft's Titus Andronicus said "Haynes does head the Rebell-Players there," though it is not certain he was the actual leader of the group.

His Highness would like to know, however, what kind of a person he is and as much as can be discovered about his situation, wherefore, Your Most Illustrious Lordship should do his part in finding him out. The London envoy, Francesco Terriesi, did, indeed, find out and replied on 17/27 December 1686: That which I have found out about Joseph Haynes, concerning whom Your Most Illustrious Lordship asked me information, is that he once was in the service of the Duchess of Cleveland {Lady Castlemaine}, and that it was he who introduced into her house that comedian {Cardell Goodman} who then, together with herself, made and still makes the world gossip so much, and who took the place of the aforementioned Haynes.

But 1672, like 1668, seems too early for the Catiline incident, because the story, if any of it is to be believed, makes a point of saying the troupe was under Hart's sole command (which was true only in 1677, briefly) and that Joe was one of the leading players in the company (which he was not in 1668, certainly). The weekly salary of 50s. sounds absurd for Joe in 1668, highly unlikely in 1672, and perhaps not even possible in 1677 (Mrs Barry, at the height of her career in 1694, earned that amount).
