My gggrandfather HOYES LLOYD was b. 1769 in Tain Ross Cromarty Scotland,came to Canada and worked for the Hudson's Bay Co.I'am sure he was given a family name Hoyes.Do any of you Hoyes people have a connection away up there in Scotland? If so who were they? I also heard the name was derived from canal workers--"hoist".
