Corrick Abbey

The Hay family of Letterbrat


No. 50 is the burial site of William Hay of Letterbratt and his family. In 1762 two leases between John Campbell of Letterbratt and John Hamilton of Dunymana are witnessed by William Hay of Monterleny. The lives mentioned include James, son to William Hay of Letterbratt and the properties are in Aughylane and Letterbratt. In a lease of 1763 William Hay’s property is mentioned as “High Letterbratt”. In 1780 William Hay of Letterbratt is mentioned again, and in a lease of 1786 there is mention of James Hay of Letterbratt, gent. It is likely that the William Hay mentioned in the leases is buried in No. 50. Campbells are also mentioned in these leases and they are the Campbells of No. 56.
