Hays Genealogy & History

Hays is a locational English and Irish name, derived from the Old English "haes", meaning brushwood or Middle English "hay/haye", meaning enclosure. Since spelling up to about 1800 was strictly phonetic, Hays can be interchangeable with Hayes in Hays genealogy, and variations include Hayse and Hay/Haye. While Hays/Hayes are both English/Irish names, Hay/Haye is primarily Scottish. The Hays family history includes a feudal manor in Sussex in ancient times, with other Hays families found in Cheshire, Lancashire, Nottinghamshire, and Yorkshire. In Scotland, the family primarily resided in Lanarkshire, Angus, Renfrewshire and Stirlingshire. The first Hays immigrant in America was in Maryland in 1667.
