The Hay Family Crest

The Hays, of Eastchester, N. Y., claim descent from James Hay, of Netherinch, Scotland, one of the followers of the Pretender, who escaped to this country in 1745. One of the crests and the motto are found in Burke as being those of the Hays, Earls of Erroll. The three shields of the coat of arms, the motto, and the crest A, were given in 980 to a rustic Scot, who, with his two sons, saved King Kenneth III., of Scotland, from being defeated by the Danes. As a reward, the King ennobled the three peasants, and gave them so much land as a falcon from a man's hand flew over till he settled.
