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 but will not include the families of female Hoylands once they change their name on marriage.
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.
