Content he purchased victory with life,

And nobly careless of his own distress,

He bade his mourning comrades onward press ;

Bade them (the hero victor o'er the man,)

Complete the conquest which his sword began ;

Then proudly smil'd amidst the pangs of death,

While thanks for victory till'd his parting breath."!

HAY, OF LEYS.

HAY-BALFOUR, DAVID, esq. of Leys, in the county of Perth, and of Randcr-
ston, in Fifeshire, succeeded his father in 1790, and is now male representative of the
noble family of Hay.

Htntagt.




The traditional origin of the house of
Hay runs thus :— In the reign of Kenneth
the Third, anno 980, the Danes, who had
invaded Scotland, having prevailed at the
battle of Luncarty, near Perth, were pur-
suing the flying Scots, from the field, when
a countryman and his two sons appeared in
a narrow pass, through which the van-
quished were hurrving, and impeded for a
moment their flight. "What," said the
rustic, " had you rather be slaughtered by
your merciless foes, than die honorably in
the field ; come, rally, rally!" and he headed
the fugitives, brandishing the yoke of his
plough, and crying out,that help was at hand:
the Danes, believing that a fresh army was
falling upon them, fled in confusion, and the
Scots thus recovered the laurel which they
had lost, and freed their country from ser-
vitude. The battle being won, the old man,
afterwards known by the name of Hay, was
brought to the king, who, assembling a par-
liament at Scone, gave to the said Hay and
his sons, as a joint reward for their valour,



so much land on the river Tay, in the dis-
trict of Gowrie, as a falcon from a man's
hand flew over till it settled ; which being
six miles in length, was afterwards called
Errol ; and the king being desirous to ele-
vate Hay and his sons from their humble
rank in life, to the order of nobility, his
majesty assigned them a coat of arms, which
was, argent, three escutcheons, gules, to
intimate that the father and two sons had
been the three fortunate shields of Scot-
land. The stone on which the falcon lighted
is still to be seen in the carse of Gowrie, in
a small village called Hawkstone. So much
for tradition. But the incontrovertible
fact is,

William de Haya, who obtained a grant
of the lands of Errol, from William the
Lion, espoused Juliana, daughter of Ra-
nulph de Soulis, Lord of Liddesdale, and
had issue,

1. William, his heir.

2. Robert, witness to a charter con-
firming the liberties of Durham and
Coldingham Abbeys, in 1204. He
was ancestor of the Tweeddale
family.

William de Haya, who held the office of
king's butler (Pincerna Domini regis) dur-
ing the reigns of Malcolm IV. and Wil-
liam the Lion, died about the year 1170.
and was s. by his elder son,

Sir William de Haya, who obtained from
William the Lion, the manor of Herrol,
now Errol, in Perthshire ; erected into a
barony, for the service of two soldiers, to
which Hugh, Bishop of St. Andrews, is a

witness. He m. Eva de Petenalin, and
thereby acquired the lands of Petenalin ;
which he and his wife, Eva, gave to the
Priory of St. Andrews. Sir William died
towards the close of the twelfth century, and
was a-, by his son,

David de Haya, who wedded Helen,
daughter of Gilbert, Earl of Strathern. and
had two sons, viz.

1. Gilbert, who succeeded his father
at Errol, and was ancestor of the
noble house of Errol, which ended
in heiresses in 1717 ; the youngest
of whom espoused the Earl of Kil-
marnock, and her descendant is now
Earl of Errol (See Burke's Peer-
aye and Baronetage).

2. William.

The second son,

William de Haya, obtained from his
brother Gilbert, in 1235, a grant of two
carucates of land, in Errol, called Leys ;
which grant was afterwards confirmed, in
1451, by William, Earl of Errol, to Edmund
Hay, of Leys, the lineal descendant of this
William. He was s. at his demise, by his
son,

— de Haya, of Leys, father of

Edmund de Haya, of Leys, an eminent
patriot, who distinguished himself in favour
of King Robert I. In 1312 he obtained,
to himself and his son William, a lease,
from the abbot and convent of Scone, of the
lands of Balgarvie. From this Edmund de
Haya, the estate of Leys passed from father
to son, to his great-great-grandson,

Edmund Hay, of Leys, to whom, Wil-
liam, Earl of Errol, granted a charter of
confirmation in 1451. He had issue,

i. Edmund, his heir.

II. Peter, from whom descend the fa-
milies of Kinnoul, Melginch, Pit-
four, Seggieden, &c. (see Hay, of
Pitfour, and Hay, of Seggieden.)

estate in 1496. He had four sons,

Peter, who predeceased his father.

Patrick, successor to his father.

Walter, ) both mentioned in a charter

son,

Patrick Hay, of Leys, who m. Eliza-
beth, daughter of John Moncrieff, of Mon-
crieff, and had a son,

Edmund Hay, of Leys, who had a char-
ter, as heir to his father, upon a precept of
clare constat, 18th and 20th March, 1513.
He espoused Elizabeth Durham, and was
*. by his son,



Patrick Hay, of Leys, who left at his
decease an onlj daughter, Margaret, who
renounced, in 1577, her succession to the
lands of Leys, in favour of her cousin, John
Hay. Patrick Hay dying thus, without
male issue, his estate passed, as heir of
tailzie, to his nephew,

George Hay, of Leys, who had an only
son,

the lands of Leys, and his uncle Edmund,

his son,
