One-Name Study for Hoyland
This website records the study of the Hoyland surname. It began with my own Hoyland ancestors from Yorkshire but will have a global scope, eventually spreading out to Hoylands around the world. The study is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies and will look for anyone with the name Hoyland.
If you have any Hoyland stories, records or other information you would like to share please get in touch.
I am also keen to hear from any Hoylands who have done or would like to do a Y-DNA test.
My inspiration for embarking on this search through time and place for Hoyland people was the centenary of my late mother Rachel Hoyland who was born in Sheffield, Yorkshire on 16th July 1916.
