Hannay, Patrick

(d. ?1629)
   He was born at Sorbie Castle, Wigtown, Scotland, where the family had owned land for generations. Early in the reign of James I, Hannay and his cousin Robert came to the English court and were favorably noticed by Queen Anne. In 1620, the cousins were granted land in County Longford, Ireland. In 1627 Patrick became master of chancery in Ireland. At some time he was general of artillery in the army of Prince Fredericke, King of Bohemia, to whom he dedicated one of his sonnets. Robert was created a baronet of Nova Scotia in 1629. Patrick is said to have died at sea in 1629. He does not seem to have married. He wrote many sonnets. Some of his publications (shortened titles): A Happy Husband, or Directions for a Maide to Choose Her Mate, 1618-19. Two Elegies on the Late Death of Our Soveraigne Queene Anne, 1619. Happy Husband 1622, (a new edition, the elegies, with some new poems). His previous works include: Philomela the Nightingale, Sheretine and Mariana, and songs and sonnets, some of which have been set to music.
