(Simon ?) HOYT

(Simon?) HOYT.
The Spring 1995 and Spring 1996 Hoyt Issue (S1) has received new research on Simon Hoyt by Robin Bush, an English researcher hired by Roy Olson, its editor:

Mr. Bush found Hoyt baptismals in West Hatch near Taunton, Somerset, England. Walter Hoyt was christened 29 November 1618 and Nicholas Hoyt was christened 7 May 1620. This indicates that Simon the immigrant was from Somerset, England. Also found was a marriage 4 November 1617 for Simon Hoyt to Jane Stoodlie at Marshwood, Dorset, England. This fits for the age of Walter Hoyt, Simonís first child. It was previously believed that Simon Hoyt, from Upwey, Dorset, England had married Deborah Stowers. Mr. Bush checked the Upwey Parish Registers and found the registers survive only from 1654. He found the Bishopís transcripts for the Parish only from 1731. The Dorchester Parish (Holy Trinity) survives from 1559, All Saints & St. Peterís Parish records are from 1653. None of these have bishopís transcripts before 1730/1. None of these parish records have any trace of Simon Hoyt or baptisms of his children. Mr. Olson hopes to continue further research in England. (S1).
