The family of Cay (or, as the name was
formerly spelt, Key) is believed to have
enjoyed very fair possessions in the Eastern
Borders. The following traditional account
of the loss of their ancient patrimony is still
recorded : at a remote period, the head of
the family having quarrelled with another
gentleman, they agreed to settle their dis-
pute, by combat, within the Poundfold of
Alnwick. Having procured the key, they
locked themselves in, and threw it over the
wall. Key killed his antagonist, leaped
over the wall, and made his escape on foot
to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, which was, at
that period, without the jurisdiction of the

This murder and flight constituting March
treason, Key's possessions were forfeited,
and he spent his life, in great indigence, at
Newcastle. His son or grandson, how-
ever, found means to be bound apprentice
to a brewer in Newcastle, and for several
generations they pursued that business, the
family continuing to this day freemen of the
Corporation of Brewers and Bakers there.

In this line of business, a considerable
trade was at length established by Robert
Key or Cay, of Newcastle, which was much

extended by his widow, when left with a
large family, for whom she amply provided.
By her exertions a good deal of property
was acquired to the family in Newcastle
and elsewhere. She was twice nearly ruined
by fires, yet, by economy and prudence, she
grew rich, and built houses for four of her
sons, to whom she gave an excellent educa-
tion. At a late period of her life, she con-
nected herself in trade with her third son,
Robert,* but being obliged to pay debts con-
tracted through his extravagance, was re-
duced to poverty. Her resolution was,
however, not to be shaken — she began the
world again, throve, and grew rich, leaving
ample provisions to her family.
Her eldest son,

Jabez Cay, studied at Edinburgh Uni-
versity, in the reign of Charles II. when
James, Duke of York, was high commis-
sioner in Scotland, 1682. He was one of a
number of students, who, according to an-
nual custom, on the 5th November, burnt an
effigy of the pope, at the gate of the palace of
Holyrood. For this, he, along with others,
was summoned before the privy council,
and was banished from Scotland. He went
to Padua, to complete his studies, and hav-
ing taken the degree of doctor in physic
there, he returned, and practised in North-
umberland, where he accumulated a con-
siderable fortune, and, in conjunction with
a person of the name of Hutchinson, pur-
chased the estate of North Charlton, in 1696.
Dr. Cay dying in 1702, unmarried, left his
share of the property to his brother,

John Cay, esq. who obtained also from
the representatives of Hutchinson, their
interest in the estate, and thus became of
North Charlton. He m. Grace, daughter
and co-heir of Henry Woolff, esq. of Bred-
lington, and had issue,

went to Ireland, and became ancestor of the Cays,
of Londonderry and Burncranagh.



Robert, his successor.

judge of the Marshalsea, and was
author of a well known edition of the

ment of the Statutes. He m. Miss

Mr. Cay was*, at his decease by his eldest son,
Robert Cay, esq. of North Charlton, and of
the Laygate, Durham, b. in 1694. This gentle-
man was engaged in considerable mercantile
speculations, the manufacture of salt, &c. He
published a letter in the newspapers of the
day, signed with the initials B. K. suggest-
ing the institution of an infirmary at New-
castle. The proposal was followed, and
thus gave rise to that excellent establish-
ment. The circumstance was commemo-
rated by giving the name of B. K. ward to
one of the departments of the infirmary,
which name it still retains. He to. Eliza-
beth, daughter of Reynold Hall, esq. of
Catcleugh, and had issue,

quarian knowledge, was the correspondent
of Horseley, and contributed to the cele-

brated map of Northumberland as well as
to Horseley's great work, the Britannia Ro-
mana ; the whole of which passed through
Mr. Cay's hands to the press, and underwent
many corrections by him. The eldest son,
