[Lived: ]- But for the attainder of 1469 de jure third Lord Boyd, though no evidence can be produced that he ever bore the title of Lord Boyd or was recognised. Appointed Chamberlain of Kilmarnock before 2 August 1488, and had a lease of Drumcoll the same year. He had charters of the lands of Ralstoun and others, in the barony of Kilmarnock, 30 November 1492. His accounts as Chamberlain end 15 April 1504, when the lordship of Kilmarnock was granted to the Queen Margaret (Tudor), the consort of James IV, to whose sasine 19 April 1504 he was a witness. Crawfurd says that he was appointed Chamberlain in 1505, and he has been followed by later writers, but if this date is correct it can have only been a reappointment by the Queen, from whom, on 26 June 1508, he had a tack of the lordship of Kilmarnock. He is stated to have been a great favourite with King James IV. "In a grant which he had of land in 1494, he is styled "Filius Roberti quondam Domini". Alexander's sister, Elizabeth (J5), married the Earl of Angus, Chancellor to James IV. Partly through the interest of that nobleman, and partly through his own dutiful behaviour, he was, by James IV, made "Baillie", and chamberlain of Kilmarnock for the Crown, and was restored to part of that Lordship, with a grant of the lands of Bordland. He was a great favourite of James IV., and by him advanced to many honours."


This family stems from Alexander Boyd's (J2), third Lord Boyd, and Janet Colville daughter Euphemia Boyd (K8) who was their second daughter. It is through Euphemia's marriage that the Boyds have an early link with the Hays. There is, during the 1500's, a link with the Gordon's via the Earl of Huntly. It is not known, by the author, if there was ever an alliance with the Boyds and Hays during this period.
This family is traced to James Boyd (T2) who became the 15th Earl of Erroll in 1759 and the remainder of his family is outlined in Chapter 3 in Volume 1, Clan Boyd of Scotland. Thus through two separate branches - one male the other female they can be connected back to a single family. His Lordship is the 28th Hereditary Lord High Constable, and as such is the first subject by birth in Scotland after the Blood Royal, having the right to take place before every other hereditary honour, which was allowed to the 18th Earl on the visit of King George IV to Scotland, and to the 20th Earl on the visits of King Edward VII, in 1903, and of King George V, in 1911, and to her ladyship herself at the state service of H. M. The Queen
in St. Giles's Cathedral in 1953, when, however, the Sward of State was borne on her ladyship's behalf by her deputy, the Earl of Home. His Lordhip also presides (though usually by deputy) over the Court of the Verge, or Constabulary Court, and his jurisdiction is supreme in all matters of assault and riot within four miles of the Queen's person when in Scotland; which with other rights and privileges was preserved to the office of Lord High Constable or Great Constable both by the Treaty of Union in 1707 and the Act for the Abolition of Heritable Jurisdictions in 1747. His Lordship and the Earl of Angus (the Duke of Hamilton), as "the two premier peers of Scotland," are the Hereditary Lords Assessors in the Court of the Lord Lyon King of Arms. Also the Earldom of Erroll, which has precedence in England before some older Scottish Earldoms, is one of the few surviving mediaeval Earldoms to possess their own private
officers-of-arms, that of his Lordhip being called Slains Pursuivant. Although settled in Scotland since 1160, the chiefs of the Hay clan derive their name (Latinised as Haia, and later rendered into English as Hay and into Gaelic as Garadh) from an original "haie" or stockade on the castle mottee-hill at La Haye in the Cotentin peninsula of Normandy. Their arms argent three escutcheons gules have always been the same as those borne during the Middle Ages by the Ancient Norman family of La Haye, seigneurs
of le Mesnil-Geldouin (now le Guislain), La Haye-Hue (also called La Haye-Comtesse or La Haye-Bellefond), La Haye-Belouze, Villebaudon and Beaucoudray, whose fiefs bordered on that of Soules near St. Lo. The first chief of the Scottish Hays, William de la Haye, Butler of Scotland under
Malcolm The Maiden, was a nephew of Ranulf de Soules, Lord of Liddesdale and also Butler of Scotland, whose family became Hereditary Butlers of Scotland but were forfeited for plotting to seize the throne itself during the Wars of Independence. William De La Haye, Butler of Scotland under Malcolm IV and William The Lion, was among the nobles at the Scottish Court from c. 1160, was a hostage for the Treaty of Falaise 1174, and Ambassador to England to demand Northumberland for the King of Scots 1199. He was granted a charter (still preserved among the Erroll Papers) of the feudal Barony of Erroll in the
Tay estuary, co Perth, c 1178-82, most of the witness being also Anglo-Normans from the Cotentin. He married a Celtic heiress of Pitmilly and possibly of other lands near the Tay estuary, and the old legend that the lands of Erroll were acquired by a falcon's fight, in reward for an ancient victory with ox-yokes over Viking invaders, may have been derived from the clan o which she was heiress. Gilbert De La Haye, third Feudal Baron of Erroll, was one of the Regents of Scotland and Guardians of the boy-king Alexander III in 1255 and 1258, also Sheriff of Perth; swore that he was "neither of counsel nor aid" in laying waste the King of England's lands in Ireland, c 1244. He married Lady Idoine Comyn daughter of William, Earl of Buchan, and sister of the Constable of Scotland. Sir Gilbert De La Haye, fifth Feudal Baron of Erroll, on of the first nobles to join Robert Bruce after the slaying of the Red Comyn (Sir
Gilbert's cousin), present at the hurried Coronation at Scone 27/March 1306, fought at Methven (where his brother Hugh was captured by the English) and was Bruce's constant friend and companion while fugitive in the wilds; he and the Black Douglas were wounded and had their horses killed under them at Dalry 1306; commanded Bruce's bodyguard as constable and fought in all his campaigns 1306-14, was Ambassador to England to negotiate the truce after Bannockburn 1314, and signed at Arbroath the famous Declaration of Scottish Independence to Pope John XXII in 1320. Edward I had personally directed Aymer de Valence to burn and lay waste the fief of Erroll in 1306, because "after the King's great courtesy to him in London he was now a traitor", but Robert I rewarded him with the lands of Slains, in co Aberdeen, together with the office of Great Constable of Scotland, both forfeited by Sir Gilbert's Comyn cousins. That office, conferred on him before 1309, was made hereditary by a charter 12 November1314.
Sir Thomas De La Haye, seventh Feudal Baron of Erroll, Constable of Scotland, a hostage in England for David II's ransom 1354, [NEED TO CHECK IF HEAD OF CLAN BOYD ALSO HOSTAGE AT THIS TIME WITH MONTGOMERIES] received 400 francs as a present from the King of France 1385, presided as Great
Constable over tournaments and trials by combat, and maintained his own private office-of-arms called Slains Pursuivant. He married the princess Elizabeth daughter of ROBERT II, King of Scots (CHECK STEWART LINEAGE, FIRST OR SECOND?). He was styled Lord the Hay in 1405, no doubt as a great
lord or magnate who was chief of his whole Name. Sir William of the Haye, first Lord Hay, one of the Commissioners in 1423 to treat for the ransom of his cousin King James I; was arrested by the King 1424 but released in order to sit as one of the peers in trial on the ex-Regent, the Duke of Albany. After the 1428 Act distinguishing lords of parliament from the ordinary lairds in the Scots baronage, the Constable
and Marichal regularly appear among the "domini de parleamento" mentioned from 1429 and he thus became Lord Hay.

Sir William Hay, first Earl of Erroll, appears under the style of Lord the Hay, 17 March 1449, and (though he and his successors continued to take their seat in Parliament as Great Constables of the realm) was belted Earl of Erroll in Parliament 12 June 1452, being granted the territorial Earldom of Erroll and Lordship of Slains by charter 31 July 1452. A Statue was passed in 1456 to restrain him from levying fees on all goods brought to market in the King's Fairs during sitting of Parliament, but the Act seems
to have been ineffectual, though renewed in 1457. He was a Commissioner to conclude the treaty with England 1457. He married Beatrix daughter of James 7th Earl of Douglas, and ultimately co-heiress of her unfortunate brother the last Black Douglas.

Nicholas Hay, second Earl of Erroll, succeeded in minority. At this time the Earls of Erroll held the practically unlimited powers of Regality in their fief, claiming when necessary in its interests the right of private war; building prisons, appointing judges and executive officers and maintaining a series of municipal systems within their territory, regulating weights and measures and issuing brieves from their own Chancery to their baillies and other officers, enforcing laws with the power of life and death, and being advised by a Council or petty parliament of their principal vassals (the Barony of Cowie, for instance, was held of the Earldom by a vassal). As Chiefs of their Name they were also responsible
for Hays living outside their fief, and could count on their support in war. William third Earl of Erroll who was in private war in Angus with the Earl of Buchan 1478, and who increased his power with "bonds of manner" by which became his "true men". He married Isabel, daughter of George second Earl of Huntly and grand-daughter of King James I.
