Looking for Hoyes from the Skegness, Lincolnshire area of England. My grt.-grandfather was Charles Hoyes, born Jan 1, 1868 and married to Maryanne Smith. His parents were William Hoyes and Hannah ?. They immigrated to Canada in 1904. Charles had 2 brothers named George and Jack. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Cindy

What information do you have on George. Where did they settle and who was his spouse
I will check some war records.

Unfortunately,I have no information on George, other than he was a sibling of Charles. This is only family knowledge and not verified.

Cindy, I just saw your request regarding the Hoyes family in Lincolnshire and maybe the following could be of use to you. From the information I have there are only two Hoyes families in Britain - one originated from the Lincolnshire area ( Lincoln/Horncastle ) and the other from the Leicester area.
My father, Arthur Hoyes, was born in Horncastle in 1906 and was one of a family of 14 children. My grandfather was, as my father, a baker. The links to Skegness are not likely although one of my uncles does live in a small coastal town just north of there. From what little information I have the name seems to originate
from the islands of Scotland and therefore, given it's definitely not a name of Scottish origins, it could be considered to be of Viking origin? Certainly the Hoyes name in Britain is very rare ( less than 0.1% I'm told) and every Hoyes that I know is related to one of the two famlies - that being said there was a
marriage of a Hoyes to a Hoyes some years ago.

If the info is of any help let me know and maybe I can dig up some other details.

With best regards, Peter

PS. There was a Hoyes that was Sherrif of Nottingham for a brief period in the 1600's!!!

Hi Peter
Hoyes from Lincolnshire is very popular right now.
I have Wm Hoyes who married Jane Rook and also a George Hoyes who married Kecia Higgins from Lincolnshire.
Do you have any connection or information that could help me in my research.

Dear Barb, I am a Lincolnshire Hoyes. My grandfather was born John Thomas Hoyes(!) in Little Grimsby, Lincs. He married Ethel Daubney and they had three children - Edith, Eileen and Eric (my father) and lived in Scunthorpe. We have a photo of a formidable looking great grandfather who was also a John Hoyes. I am married to Elizabeth and we have two duaghters Rebecca and Rachel, so this particular Hoyes line will stop. From Richard

Hi there - I found your post whilst searching for DAUBNEY. I have just started to help my sister in law with her family tree. She is a HARDY from Lincolnshire and her grandmother is Caroline May DAUBNEY (known as May) born 6th May 1916 at Thimbleby. We believe that her parents were George & May DAUBNEY (poss nee COOK?) of West Ashby (waiting for birth certificate to confirm this)

George is poss son of William & Susan DAUBNEY of Highfield Farm, Hemingby born ca 1882 Hemingby but this is not confirmed as yet

Does any of this sound familiar?
