Thanks very much for this posting and I'm glad to hear or your interest in the SEAY surname. The more I have researched it, the less I know. The name is certainly a mystery. We do know, that at least for one line, the name is from Ireland, but we don't know where in Ireland.
There is much balderdash, misinformation and flat out error on the SEAY family all over the Internet and it drives me to distraction. This business about Abraham Seay or de Saye or Whomever falls into that category. It seems that someone, many years ago, must have noticed that the names are spelled in a similar fashion, put this in a manuscript of some kind with absolutely no poof or attestation, and it got picked up and passed on like the gospel. Not only is there no proof, the evidence argues against it. It's very clear from documentary evidence that SEAY is an Irish name and a variant of an English name in the 1500's and 1600's.
Thanks very much,
