About us

This project is dedicated to exploring the origins of those bearing the Boyette surname, including its variants Boyett, Boyet, Boyte, Boyt, Boit/e, Boyatt, and Boyat. Most of those in the US bearing this surname are believed to be descended from Thomas Boy(e)t who arrived in Virginia sometime in the late 1600's. Variants of the Boyett(e) surname exist not only in the US and UK, but also in other English-speaking countries, as well as France. As Thomas Boy(e)t's exact origins are unclear, we are interested in extending our project to those outside of this country in order to establish possible links to those bearing our surname abroad.
