    3. Thanks all for the information on the Cornish Militia. Joy, I have all the records of William Hay's descendants, although I too can't find Arthur's baptism. Plymouth Directory records show that Arthur remained in Plymouth until at least the 1841 census, where his age is given as circa 80. I will have a look at the Lifton records to see if I can find any definite link. I think a 1728 birth may be a bit early for William if he was still alive in 1814 - although his son Arthur was long-lived! If I could find a burial record for William, it might indicate his age so I'd have more idea about a birth year. One day perhaps!

I am guessing that the Arthur HAY who named a daughter Ann Rescordel Hay might be one of them because Rescorla was the surname of William's wife, Elizabeth. Arthur and his wife also gave children middle names Vivien (his wife Dorothy's surname) and Symons (Louisa Symons Hay which FMP have mistranscribed as Hag). If you can look for marriages, baptisms relating to other children they may include clues in marriage witness names and children's middle names. I have found a baptism for Mary Rescorl HEE 1765 at Stoke Damerel, parents William and Elizabeth but I can't find Arthur's baptism or other children's baptisms. The name Arthur Hay/Hey/Hea appears down the years in the Lifton registers and a William Hay was baptised at Lifton in 1728. parents Arthur and Margaret.
