Did the Hiott Family of USA Come From the Hiots of France?
Are there Hiot researchers in France that can help trace this name backward for more than 2 centuries?Is there evidence that the 55 or so Hiot families of France [widely dispersed across the country] were once a single family.
Also, what of the Hyot families of France? Are they related to the Hiots?
Are there documents to show Hiot/ Hiotts of Huguenot religious persuasion that left France in the era of reformation for England [and later America]?
Are there records to show that some Hiotts migrated eastward, and became Romanians and perhaps Hungarians?
Present day locations of Hiots and Hiotts suggest these things, but little documentation has been found. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
