Eva married William DE LA HAY of Erroll, 'Cupbearer' (Pincerna).1 2 (William DE LA HAY of Erroll, 'Cupbearer' (Pincerna) was born about 1140 and died after 1201 1.)

  Marriage Notes:

"He (William de la Hay) is a witness to some of the later charters of Malcolm IV., in one of which he is styled pincerna or cupbearer. He is also so styled in some early charters of William the Lion, and in a charter by himself granted in 1171. The charter in which Ranulph de Soulis styles himself pincerna plainly falls between 1165 and 1170. The pincerna of 1171 is clearly the person who married Eva, got with her the lands of Petmulin, and was the father of David de Haya..." (page 555)

"He was alive in 1201, as appears from a charter in the Benholm Charter-chest probably of that date, but died soon afterwards, leaving issue by Eva, his wife" (page 556)

from Scots Peerage (vol 3)

"He (William de la Hay) married Eva de Petenalin, with whom he obtained the lands of Petenalin, which he and Eva his wife gave to the Priory of St. Andrews, which was confirmed by their son David, and ratified by William the Lion."
