CAY/KAY/KEY Surname only given Blacksmith 1848: Charles Cay/Key/Kay. CAY is a corruption of KEY and KAY. The Kennet and Avon Canal runs through this small market town which was on the route from Bristol - main port on the west coast to Reading, London and links to the east coast - important cut through rather than sailing round the south coast of England.
