Re: HOY FAMILY
Looks like you and I are related.
My grandfather Henry Thomas Hoy( 1871 - 1953) would appear to be your G/F's elder brother. His father Henry Thomas Hoy (1842 - 1911), born Cheltenham, Gloucester, UK, died Christchurch NZ.
His mother I have as Maria Wallis (?)
One further generation back, I have, father William Robert Hoy ( abt 1792 - Dec 1848), born Cheltenham, died and buried Royston, UK married Ann Hannes, ( death March 1865).
My father - Alfred Patrick Hoy ( 1914 - 2001) son of Henry Thomas above, mother Mary Margaret Kerrigan ( 1872 - 1960 ish) had 6 brothers & sisters who like me were also quite productive !
There are quite a few of us here in NZ.
Where are you from ?
I'd be please to correspond with you sir.
with kind regards
Nick Hoy ( 1952 -)
