Yes, the Hoyts were MA->CT->NY->everywhere. Jackie, you need to do much more work on your own and probably go to the Hoyt board. You need to be aware that the sir name can be spelled many ways and not get too caught up on the spellings. Remember they were in Stamford by the 1630s. They were not as prolific as some sir names but with 20+ generations there are a lot. Too many to get any kind of concideration un less you can go back a century or so. However, it does not hurt to try.
