John Sayes was Bailiff of Tenby in 1649, and Mayor in 1657.

"Sayse, a surname in Tenby in 1405, signifies the Sassenach, a sobriquet given to many Anglicised Celtic Welsh by their countrymen, and afterwards converted into a surname, which has been modernized into Seix in Ireland, where some of this name were falconers to the Earls of Kildare, and others gentlemen in the household services of the Earls of Ormond. The sex of the mason appears to be the modern type of the short sais, or short sword, whence the Saxons are said to derive their designation."--Ex "Arch. Camb.," New Series, Part XIV.
