    Notes:

    "As 'fils et heir Willialme del Hoy, seigneur de Lochiwort' he was one of the hostages for the liberation of David II specified in the Treaty of 13 July 1354, and under the designation of 'Thomas fitz and heir William de la Hay de Lochorward' was one of those hostages when that Treaty was concluded 3 October 1357, being given to the custody of Henry Strother, Sheriff of Northampton. He is mentioned as Thomas de Haye as being in the custody of the Sheriff of Northampton 20 May 1362, and 20 June 1363, and would seem still to have been in custody 16 May 1369, when he got a safe-conduct from Edward III to go to Rome. He was back in Scotland before 1373, when he is mentioned as Sheriff of Peebles. He is the first of the name who appears as Sheriff of Peebles, an office which became hereditary in his family, and was enjoyed by them for three centuries till the second Earl of Tweeddale sold it, together with his whole estates in Tweeddale to William, Duke of Queensberry in 1686. Thomas de la Haye had a share of the 40,000 francs which John of Vienne, Admiral of France, brought with him in 1385, as a present from the French King to the principal Scottish nobles, 400 livres Tournois being allotted as his share 26 November. At Dundee on 29 August 1392, Thomas de Haya, Lord of Lochorwart, granted a charter of the lands of Glaswell and Torburne in the barony of Kyrimure, co. Forfar, to his cousin Walter de Moravia of Drumsargart. Tliis charter was confirmed by William (of Douglas), Earl of Angus, 8 March 1422, and by one under the Great Seal about 1488. He appears to have died shortly after 1392, and certainly before 1 December 1399, when his wife was living, a widow." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below]
