    NEW 2014, I believe that Simon Hoyte as told, sold his Windsor "Hoyt's Meadows" in 1646. He o wned a house lot and 2 1/2 acres bordering the common in Fairfield, CT; 5 acres at "Sascoe Ne ck" on "Hoit's Island," and land purchased from John Green.(31), and his death was recorded a t Stamford, but he was living in Fairfield, some 11 mioles away. His Wife Susannah Hoyte wa s still living, so what did she do with the body, as they had just moved for 10th year. 1446 -47-1657.
    Did Sussannah leave up to the Sons, John (Oldest), Walter (Next) or Nicolas 3rd eldest.??

    Dear Grace,
    What is the name of the Oldest or Old Cemetery that you have in Stamford? and is it availabl e online for viewing?
    I have been trying to locate my immigrant ancestor, Simon Hoyte (Hoight) (Haight) d. 1657 gra ve,
    through the Fairfield County cemeteries web pages at link:
    and have not found the people that were buried, especially the 'founders' cemetery.

    John E. Hoyt
    * various surname derivations
    Note #1 -Bush further cites account rolls for West Hatch that mention Simon Hoyt's payments t o the manor for new grants of tenements through1631, and by 1632-3 his name was crossed out a nd replaced by another. He acquired two tenements in 1627-8, not long before Simon the immigr ant left England. If the latter is the same as West Hatch Simon he would have signed away th e properties when he was in either Charlestown or Dorchester, MA. He had become a freeman i n 1631, so he may have felt sufficiently established in the Massachusetts Colony to undo hi s realestate ties in England.
    Bush notes that the above court entries are all under the subheading of the manor tithing o f West Hatch. This makes a fairly certain connecton between the Simons - the son of Michael o f West Hatch, the father of Walter and Nicholas of West Hatch and the immigrant to Massachuse tts Bay.
    Note #2 -In New England
    Simon Hoyt appears on a list, with Stowers and the Sprague family, ofthose who were the firs t to live in Charlestown in the Massachusetts BayColony.(15) The date given for the list, whi ch appears in the townrecords, is 1628, but scholars can safely say that the document was mad esomewhat later. Although a few families were living in the vicinity ofwhat became Charlestow n by 1628, the so-called Higginson Fleet of shipswhich sailed in the Spring and Summer of 162 9, sent by the MassachusettsBay Colony, carried some if not most of the people named on tha t list.Gov. Endicott of the Massachusetts Bay Colony approved the removal of the Spragues an d "three or four others" to explore and settle what became Charlestown. Given the probable pr oximity of their origins in England,Simon may not only have sailed with them but joined the a s one of those others to Charlestown. On the above-mentioned list, Simon is listed one name a way from the Spragues.
    Simon appears on the first list of "Names of such as tooke the Oath of Freemen" of the colony , dated 18 May 1631,(16) and is presumed to have been in Dorchester. The first record found o f Simon in that town is from1633, leaving in question where he was in 1631. On 3 April 1633 D orchester town records state that a double-rail fence with mortices in the posts was ordere d to be put up by the cow-owners of the town, 20 feet of length per cow. Simon's fencing wa s to be 40 feet.(17) On 8 October of the same year he was appointed a fenceviewer for the "ea st field."(18) Onthe 6th of January of the following year he was included in a division of"ma rsh and swamp."(19) He was elected a fenceviewer for the "north field"on 24 May 1634.(20) O n the 2nd of June he was in another division of marsh and swamp, a parcel of about 8 acres o n the north side of the"neck." On 10 February he was ordered to keep one bull with the heifer s on the "neck of land," for which he was to be paid.(21) This action surely was taken to mak e calves and that Simon was to oversee the process. The last mention of Simon as a Dorcheste r resident was on 17 February 1635 (Old or New Style date?), when it was ordered that "the lo tt of medow that was Symon Hoytes next to boston side Joyning to John Witchfield shall be dev ided betwixt Mr. Rodger Williams and Gyles Gibbes."(22)
    a Simon and his family moved to Scituate, MA, by the time he and his wife joined the church t here on 17 April 1635.(23) Given the last two references to Simon in the Dorchester town reco rds, the move can be placed between the 10th of February and the 17th of April. Rev. Lothro p of Scituate listed the house lots and their occupants from the time he arrived in November ? of 1634 to December? of 1636, the months being unclear.(24) Simon had a house lot there bet ween those dates. Dean'shistory of Scituate indicates that "Goodman Hoyt" was granted land i n the"Greenfield" section of Scituate between April? and June? of 1635, although it is not cl early stated and there are no sources cited in this work.(25) However, given all this evidenc e, it is reasonable to say that the Hoyts moved to Scituate in late Winter of 1635 and had es tablished themselves sufficiently enough to join the church and build or buy ahouse there wit hin the next 4 months.
    The time of Simon's removal to Windsor, CT, is not known, but speculated to have been betwee n 1636 and 1639, when groups of settlers from Massachusetts Bay went there. He apparently doe s not appear in Scituate town and church records after 1635-1636. In 1677, Matthew Grant reco rded that there were 2 children born to Simon in Windsor (how accurate was this over 30 year s after the fact?), suggesting that he moved there with the 1639 party headed by Rev. Huit.(2 6) He was surely there by 7 May1640, when the Particular Court of Connecticut ordered that "S imon Hoyette and his family are to be freed from watch & ward until there be further Order ta ken by the Courte."(27) The reason for this may be found in where Simon was granted land in W indsor. He appears in an inventory of land ownership dated 28 February 1640-1.(28) He had bee n granted "fourscore" acres of upland and meadow and the same amount on the northside of th e "rivulet," with 30 acres of the latter designated for his son Walter. A copy of this recor d describes the property as being on the eastside of the "rivulet" (presumably what is now th e Farmington River), but given the meandering of the river, it can be considered as both. Thi s area became known as Hoyt's Meadow and was enough distant from the main settlement known a s the Palisado to excuse Simon and Walter from gaurd duty. A record of January 1659-60 says h e had a "long seat" in the Windsor church, for which he paid 6 shillings.(29) He had died i n Stamford, CT, by this time. The record refers to pews associated with houses and their orig inal owners, although the latter are not named, and Simon was likely among them.
    Simon supposedly sold his homestead lot in "Hoyt's Meadow" in1646 (to the Thrall's*).(30) H e owned a house lot and 2 1/2 acres bordering the common in Fairfield, CT; 5 acres at "Sasco e Neck" on "Hoit's Island," and land purchased from John Green.(31) This land is listed in a n inventory for the town of Fairfield dated 6 March 1649. He may have bought some of it nea r the time he sold his Windsor land in 1646 and made his move in that year.
    Simon's death is recorded in the Stamford town records on the 1st day of the 7th month 1657 ( Old Style dating), translating to 1 September1657.(32) An inventory of his estate was taken o n 9 October of 1657. This Fairfield Co. probate item is given here as it was transcribed fo r David Hoyt's book. It is described as worn and partially torn. The end of it is clearly mis sing.

Thi s has been proven to be i n error and the first wife of Simon Hoyt is now proven to be "Jan e Stoodlie ". [Hoyt'sIssue, Spring 1997, :1358]. [see GMB, II:1032 fo r explanation pertainin g to second wife's maiden name, which is not "Smit h".] Her maiden name remains undiscovered . The reference in early records to "the Smith" was reference to the village "Blacksmith" no t to the maiden name of 2d wife, Susanna(h).
    MARRIAGE: Early writings claim Ruth and Deborah as being children of Simon Hoyt. Without th e Upwey dates previously claimed and found in error, there is no evidence to conclude that th ey were daughters of Simon Hoyt.

    THE HAIGHT FAMILY both numerically and by
    virtue of their ability and energy have for many years
    occupied a prominent place in the annals of the central
    Hudson River Valley.
    The family descend from Baron Johannes Von Haight (***Wrong*** not of European dna)
    who went from Normandy to Britain in the thirteenth
    century, and the American branch trace their ancestry
    to that sterling Puritan, Simon Haight who was born in (Simon Hoyte never spelled or wrot e his name as Haight,
    a couple of his sons did, though)
    Dorsetshire, England, in 1596, and sailed for America
    October 6, 1638 on the vessel "Abigail," with Col. John (We now know it was the Lyons Whelps )
    Endicott who was afterward appointed Governor of the
    Massachusetts colony. In colonial records the name is
    spelled variously Haight, Hait, Hoyt and Hoit.
    Simon Haight brought with him to America his wife
    and son, John, and two other children who probably died
    in infancy as no further record of them can be found.
    The family settled &st at Salem, Mass., and a few years
    later removed to Stamford, Conn., where Simon Haight
    died Sept, 1, 1657. Several of his descendants live in
    this section of Connecticut and for many generations
    have spelled the name " Hoyt ."
    John Haight (or Hoit), eldest son of Simon was born
    at Dorsetshire, England in 1614, and died at Rye, Westchester
    County, N. Y., Sept. 1, 1684. He was in his
    fourteenth year when he accompanied his father to
    America. He lived for some years in Fairfield County,
    Conn., and in 1665, removed with his family to Westchester
    County, N. Y., purchasing a large strip of land
    from Thomas Pell, whose name is perpetuated in the

After this date, hisname no longer appears at Charlestown but i s found in the Dorcestorrecords several times. Simon's name does not appear in Dorcestor reco rdsafter Feb 10, 1634 . He moved on.
    In Stiles' History, on page 149, we find Simon Hoyt listed with those whopaid for seats in th e meeting house. He moved from Windsor to Fairfieldbefore 1659. In Fairfield, there is mentio n of him on pages 29 and 30 ofthe land records of that town. Other residence info includes tr ansactionswhich refer to him as Symon Hoyt of Stamford. (Hoyt, The Hoyt and HaightFamilies i n America, (2 - Vol), page 286, 287.) From Dorcester, he movedto Scituate, Massachusetts, pro bably early in April 1635, as Symeon Hayteand wife joined the Scituate Church on April 19, 16 35 or 1636. FromScituate, Massachusetts, he went to Windsor, Ct. His party arrived in1639.

On 10 Februar y 1634/35 "Simon Hoyte" was ordered to keep one of thebulls in the neck of land [DTR 10]. O n 17 April, 1635, it is "orderedthat the lot of meadow which was Symon Hoyte's next to Bosto n sidejoining to John Witchfeild shall be divided betwixt Mr. Rodger Williamsand Gyles Gibbes " [DTR 11]. In his accounting of houses built atScituate, Rev.

    Notes for *Simon Hoyt:
    Simon apparently sailed to Charlestown from Gravesend on the "Abigail"with Gov. John Endicott , arriving Sept 6,1628. Info from "Passengers &Ships" and "The Hancock Genealogy". Other sour ces suggest he came on theHigginson Fleet, "George" or "Lyons Whelp", 1629 .

    Dear Grace,
    What is the name of the Oldest or Old Cemetery that you have in Stamford? and is it availab le online for viewing?
    I have been trying to locate my immigrant ancestor, Simon Hoyte (Hoight) (Haight) d. 1657 gra ve,
    through the Fairfield County cemeteries web pages at link:
    and have not found the people that were buried, especially the 'founders' cemetery.
