Commander William Hay (circa 1770-after 1828)
Captain William Hay is first mentioned in Hardy's East India Register as third mate of the East Indiaman 'Rockingham', which sailed from Portsmouth to Calcutta on 27 June 1796. In 1805 he had his first command in the 'Retreat', a new ship owned by Robert Wigram, which sailed for Madeira and Bombay in April, returning in May 1806. Between this date and 1828 he made many more voyages to the East. For details of his career see 'A register of ships employed in the service of the Honourable the United East India Company, from the year 1760 to 1810' by Charles Hardy.
