Patrick Hay, 5th of Megginch (Meglinch), 1st of Pitfour (bpt 23.04.1577, d 08.1603)
m1. Isabel Bryson (dau of Patrick Bryson or Boyson of Pitcullane or Pitcullen)
McGregor identifies Patrick's wife as Helen, dau of Walter Bryson of Pitcullen and widow of George Hay, Earl of Errol. TCP (Errol) identifies the widow of George, Earl of Errol, as Helen, dau of Walter Bryson or Bruce of Pitcullen, but reports that she later married Patrick Cheyne of Esselmont (as shown on Cheyne03). Patrick's first wife is not identified in Commoners but is named in TSP (Kinnoull) as "Isabel, elder daughter and co-heir of Patrick Bryson of Pitcullane". We suspect that Helen was Isabel's younger daughter.
