WOODYARD Family from Runton, Norfolk

Surnames: Woodyard, Hoves, Everet
I have discovered that many Woodyards came from Runton, Norfolk, England (I don't know why this is so or for how many years they lived in the area - I'd love to find out though).

I am looking for any info on my relatives:
John and Mary (nee Hoves) Woodyard - b. in 1770s approx. He was a "cordwainer".They had Benjamin Woodyard (b. 1793) and John Woodyard (b. 1795).

John Woodyard married Elizabeth Everet (b. 1797) in Norfolk and had a son, John (b. in 1833). When they moved to Canada, they had several more in what is now the Peel region of Ontario (actually: Chinguacousy, Ont.).

I am hoping to find other links with family. Perhaps some of my relatives still live in the area. Thanks for your help.
