Genealogy Note:

Somerset County, England - 2 Oldest "Hoyt" surname records

Page 275
Researched by Mr. Munckton of the Rolls of Curry Rivell at Doctors Common, London
Curry Rivel, during reign of 4th & 5th Henry V, 1417-1418, a
John Hoyt of Curry Rivel, who appears to have been a baker.

Page 276
Also a Record furnished by John Rocke Hoyte of Glastonbury,
Thomas Hoyt, accompanied the Abbot of Glaston in a "Progress made about the Liberty of the
12 Hydes of Glaston", in the County of Somerset, on the 16th day of July, 1503.
The spelling HOYT used in the 2 oldest records of the name yet discovered.


After reading the Hoyt Book of 1871, the Hoyte Families in England, pages, 273-pg.281, David W. Hoyt, was given a record by Mr. Munckton, that dates a John Hoyt back to the reign of 4th & 5th Henry "V", 1417-18. Which means we have to fill in dates and names back to this John Hoyt born probably before 1380, being 37 yrs. old, as a baker, when this record was taken. Then you can add a Thomas Hoyte being, with the Abbot of Glaston, being 40 yrs. old at that time of 1503 date........Using the existing above linls of Robin Bush's research, and my logs of Hoyt surnames & it's variant findings off the ancestry.com CD's of the Counties in Southern England...we now have a good enough established lineage of Simon Hoyt/e's, possibly back to 1380,. (As per our Timothy Hoyt Branch being Flour Millers for 5-6 generations, and finding the oldest John Hoyt, a baker, whom works with milled grain, or whom possibly did the milling is a nice finding......per John E. Hoyt)

(For more Perspective of European Historical Timeline-----Scroll to bottom of page.)

At the start of the period, concurrent with the accession of Henry IV (r. 1399–1413), England's first Lancastrian king, the British Isles are rife with internal tensions, including Welsh revolt, a series of baronial rebellions led by the Percy family of Northumberland, and ongoing warfare among the Anglo-Irish nobility. In 1415, Henry V (r. 1413–22) renews the war with France that has continued, with interruptions, for nearly a century. His endeavors are temporarily successful, gaining large territories in France and securing his claim to the French throne. During the reign of his son Henry VI (1422–61; 1470–71), however, the English are expelled from France with the help of Joan of Arc, a French peasant girl, and political turmoil erupts at home when the king's frequent illnesses place England in the hands of a Protector, Richard, duke of York. By the end of the fifteenth century, civil war between the Yorkists and Lancastrians seriously undermines the power of the monarchy and leaves the nobility fractured and vulnerable to the prevailing Tudor family.

SIMON's DESCENDANT - ENGLAND to AMERICAN WEST - OVANDO HOYT of OVANDO, MONTANA

A PART 1 SERIES OF 3 FILMS ON OVANDO, MT

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw00HHY8x_I

 

Sheri Ritchlin's Email to John E. Hoyt (Author) on 01-23-2017

OVANDO, MT

Dear John,
I hope this reaches you from snowy Ovando, Montana--town of 50, founded by Ovando Hoyt! In my opinion, the greatest little town in the world (and I have lived in many places in this country and abroad.) In fact, I have enjoyed living in the town so much that I wanted to give something back. I am the town's recluse writer, living above the Stray Bullet Cafe, so I am not as active in community events as I should be. My give-back is a gift to our wonderful museum and historical society. I am only an amateur videographer but I've taken on a History of Ovando in 3-parts. Part 1 is "Simon Hoyt's Legacy." You can imagine that your Simon Hoyt website was invaluable to this project. I think you will enjoy it.
I would love it if you could share this video link on your website and with any Hoyt family descendants. You could also send me a list and I would email them with this as well. As you know, Ovando was the son of Azor and Minerva Hoyt. He was quite a remarkable fellow, as you will see in the video. Minerva is buried right here in Ovando!

Please encourage "Simon's Family" to pay a visit to this great place. They would be welcomed by everyone in our friendly little town: Our Blackfoot Mercantile and Commercial Company and Inn (lovely rooms available: http://www.ovandoinn.com/), Stray Bullet Cafe (breakfast and lunch), the Blackfoot Angler (except in winter), the Brand Bar Museum and Trixi's Antler Saloon. We have a splendid school--K-8--about ten children. Ovando lies in the Blackfoot Valley at the edge of the million acre Bob Marshall Wilderness. Anywhere you go from here is beautiful and there are plenty of good fishing places. Folks at the Blackfoot Angler can help you. Check in with Fred or Leigh Ann at the store and make yourselves known!

Here is the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw00HHY8x_I
If you search the site on Google, please make sure that it is the version with the ".rv" after it. I have copied this email to Terry Sheppard who is the Historical Society person to contact in the town. I'm sure that she would like to hear from you.

My best regards to you and your family and gratitude from all of us for your terrific website.

I urge ALL EXTENDED HOYT FAMILY MEMBERS, to Please WATCH this Wonderfully produced video, as Sheri explains the ENGLISH HISTORY & TIMELINE for Simon Hoyt/e family of coming to America & descendants to the Amerixcan West, from "Shore to Shore" of our Country, during the pioneering days of hardship and wonder for our Simon Hoyt's, particularly of Ovando Hoyt & his silbling families born in Deerfield & area of Franklin County, MA (famous for the 1704 French-Indian Masacure), and died in Ellensburg, Kittilas Co., Washington...

LINK TO READ - On Biblical References

The people to be reigned over by David's throne were to be descendants of the tribes of Israel, who migrated from Palestine

through Europe to the "appointed place" (2 Samuel 7:10), identified as the (British) "Isles" (Isaiah 41:1).
In Genesis 12:2, God declares: "I will make thy name great". Only one nation today is called great -- Great Britain. This promise is even more significant when it is noted that the Hebrew root word for "Brit" means "covenant" and the word "ish" means "man". The compound word "British" therefore is literally "covenant man" and "Britain", "covenant land".

NOTE: Since the Simon Hoyt/e descendants have E3b & E3 Haplogroups, could it be we Hoyt/e's might have the Lost Tribes or Great Britian's heir to the Throne of David's & Dan's, Bloodline, as well as, the Queen of Elizabeth bloodline, that shows a direct line to the ancient biblical kings?

Our, Hoyt/e E3b (now E1b1b) haplogroup, is shown to have evolved in the Middle East. It expanded into the Mediterranean during the Pleistocene Neolithic expansion. It is currently distributed around the Mediterranean, southern Europe, and in north and east Africa.

WESTERN EUROPEAN HISTORICAL TIMELINE - 1400's (15th century)

British Isles

http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/ht/08/euwb/ht08euwb.htm

At the start of the period, concurrent with the accession of Henry IV (r. 1399–1413), England's first Lancastrian king, the British Isles are rife with internal tensions, including Welsh revolt, a series of baronial rebellions led by the Percy family of Northumberland, and ongoing warfare among the Anglo-Irish nobility. In 1415, Henry V (r. 1413–22) renews the war with France that has continued, with interruptions, for nearly a century. His endeavors are temporarily successful, gaining large territories in France and securing his claim to the French throne. During the reign of his son Henry VI (1422–61; 1470–71), however, the English are expelled from France with the help of Joan of Arc, a French peasant girl, and political turmoil erupts at home when the king's frequent illnesses place England in the hands of a Protector, Richard, duke of York. By the end of the fifteenth century, civil war between the Yorkists and Lancastrians seriously undermines the power of the monarchy and leaves the nobility fractured and vulnerable to the prevailing Tudor family.

France

http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/ht/08/euwf/ht08euwf.htm

15th century The dukes of Burgundy are an influential presence in French politics, involved in various struggles for control of the throne. By mid-century, their possessions include much of the Netherlands and the duchy of Luxembourg, but pass to the Habsburg family with Mary of Burgundy's marriage to Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I (r. 1493–1519) in 1477.

• 1405 Christine de Pisan (1365–ca. 1434) publishes La Cité des dames, a celebratory history of female virtue. Her treatise is modeled on Boccaccio's Concerning Famous Women of 1401.

• early 15th century The Limbourg brothers, a family of Netherlandish painters first trained as goldsmiths in Paris, enter the service of Jean, duc de Berry, for whom they produce two illuminated manuscripts: the Belles Heures (in the Cloisters Collection) and the Très Riches Heures.

• 1453 The Hundred Years' War ends with the expulsion of English forces from France. The French victory owes much to the intervention of Joan of Arc (ca. 1412–1431), a peasant girl urged by voices to aid the dauphin who, with her assistance, is crowned King Charles VII (r. 1422–61) in Reims in 1429. Taken prisoner by the English in 1431, she is burned at the stake in Rouen. Charles's reconciliation with Philip the Good, duke of Burgundy, facilitates his gradual reconquest of towns and territories in northern France.

Iberian Penninsula (Spain & Portugal)

http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/ht/08/eusi/ht08eusi.htm

ca. 1400–1492 The artistic traditions of Islamic Spain continue under Nasrid patronage, even though the period is marked by internal strife and marred by the gradual erosion of the kingdom. By mid-century, much of Nasrid territory is under Christian control, and in 1492, following a ten-year onslaught, Granada falls to the forces of Ferdinand and Isabella, bringing to an end almost 800 years of Islamic presence on the Iberian Peninsula.

• ca. 1416 Prince Henrique (Henry), called "the Navigator" (1394–1460), youngest son of João I of Portugal (r. 1385–1433), establishes a naval base and a school of navigation at Sagres, setting the precedent for Portugal's rise as a major sea power. As master of the affluent Order of Christ, he sponsors numerous expeditions to Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, Madeira, and the Azores. By the turn of the sixteenth century, Bartolomeu Dias (ca. 1450–1500) rounds the Cape of Good Hope (1488) and establishes a sea route to Asia, Vasco da Gama (ca. 1460–1524) voyages to India (1497–99), and Pedro Álvars Cabral (ca. 1467–1520) reaches Brazil (1500). Through purchase, trade, and conquest, the explorers return to the Iberian Peninsula carrying luxury goods from these countries—including spices, precious metals, gems, textiles, and porcelain.
