Kay Genealogy & History

Kay is an English and French surname with several origins. First, it was used to indicate someone who made keys or guarded them, the latter being an important job in an aristocratic house, which ultimately comes from the Old English caeg, meaning key. There's also the Old French kaye, meaning quay, and used for people living or working on one. The Welsh Cai or Cornish Key may also have developed into Kay, from King Arthur's brother. Kay family history starts with Geoffrey Cai, noted in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk in 1197. Well-known members of Kay genealogy include British singer James Kay, known professionally as Jamiroquai, Canadian author Guy Kay, and former British Lord Justice of Appeal John Kay.
