    John Kay was born in April 1742, at Gibraltar near Dalkeith, son of John Kay, mason, and Helen Alexander. He was apprenticed to George Heriot, barber of Dalkeith, and purchased the freedom of the Society of Surgeon-Barbers of Edinburgh 19 September 1771. William Nisbet of Dirleton took him into his household, and he there he learnt to draw and paint in miniature, in which he was encouraged by the family. After his patron's death, Kay published some etchings, and these were so successful that he gave up his old profession in 1785 and supported himself entirely by his etching and by miniatures.He married a Miss Lilly Steven, 6 March 1765, by whom he had his son William who did some etchings. She died in March 1785. He married again in 1787, Margaret Scott, who surv ived him and died in November 1835. John Kay died 21 February 1826, his son William predeceased him. The National Library of Scotland has a Catalogue of the works and other genuine property of the late Mr John Kay of Edinburgh, the celebrated caricaturist engraver, print seller, and picture dealer, to be sold by Mr Walker of the Agency Office, in his rooms, opposite the College, on Mondaythe 22d day of February 1836, and following days .He had meant to publish his etchings during his lifetime,and prepared some short memoirs for the publication, including a brief autobiography. After his death the plates were acquired and published by Hugh Paton, a carver and gilder, with biographical notes by James Paterson. The parts began to appear in 1837. A Prospectus for the part edition of 'The Works of the Edinburgh Caricaturist the late John Kay' is in the appendix to the Edinburgh Directory for 1838. The text was revised for the 1842 edition. By then the plates were showing signs of wear, and most in that edition were offset onto lithographic stones and printed that way. A subsequent edition published by A. & C. Black in 1877, has the plates reentered by the graver.

    James VI granted a privilege for making paper in Scotland in February 1590 to Peter Graet Haere, and a grant of a monopoly under the Privy Seal to Pietter Gryther and Michael Kysar almanis on 5 December 1590. Michael Keysar in partnership with Mungo Russell opened a mill at Dalry very shortly afterwards. On Mungo Russall's death in 1591, the inventory of his will shows him owed a large sum for printing paper by Robert Waldegrave, the King's Printer. In May 1594 Gideon Russall made a grant of the Dalry Paper Mill for eleven years to Keysar and Seillar who are described as almanis [i.e. Germans], on condition that they do not set up any other paper mill in Scotland during that time. Waterston illustrates a watermark of the royal sign manual IR6 with a crown from a Privy Council Paper of 15 December 1589, and another with IR and AR monograms and a crowned thistle from another of 25 January 1593.
