The earliest information concerning John' Hoyt, which has yet been obtained, is that he was one of the original settlers of Salisbury, Mass. His age at that time can not be accurately determined, but from the fact that he had at least two children born previous to 1639, it seems probable that he was born about 1610-15. He was chosen selectman, March, 1681-2, and moderator of town-meetings, April, 1687 (the same year he died), hence he could not have been very aged and infirm at that time. Whether he came directly from England, or had previously lived in other towns in America, is uncertain.

There is a Hoyt Street in Brooklyn, New York. I don't know the origin; if I had to hazard a guess, I would say it was the surname of someone noteworthy.
