seton /Hay connection Scotland

Journal by marcii

my great grandfather was Peter Seton hay born Scotland.He named his son John Seton hay who named his son Seton Geoffrey Hay. I am wondering how I can find the connection and why this name has been carried down. I look at other records in the family and see that often the second name has a direct relationship to the mother's maiden name e.g. john Dalziel Hay. Mary Clarke Hay, Peter Clarke h but I cannot find the Seton connection as yet any help gratefully appreciated

Hi there, Marc11 . In researching my HAY family, Edinburgh to Otago I came across your Peter Seton Hay regularly. They are not related to my HAYS, but I found out something so interesting. A lady had bought an old family album in a second hand shop and contacted me as she thought it such a shame the family concerned did not own it. She said the photos were just lovely and I even wrote aletter to a Dunedin local paper and the Dunedion NZSG to see if anyone claimed it. No result. It was Peter S Hay's family album. If you go into NZ PAPERS PAST and enter Peter Seton HAy you will find many entries as he had a very illustrious career. Regards Genseek
