Early Origins of the Boyntent family

The surname Boyntent was first found in East Riding of Yorkshire at Boynton, a village and civil parish which dates back to the Domesday Book where it was first listed as Bouintone. [1]

"Boynton Hall, the residence of the Baronet, is a lofty and handsome mansion, beautifully situated upon an eminence in a richly wooded park; the acclivities present some fine plantations, and a large sheet of water ornaments the grounds." [2]

"Bartholomew de Bovington, living a the beginning of the 12th century, stands at the head of the pedigree; other authorities mention Sir Ingram de Boynton of Aclam who lived in the reign of Henry III, as the first ancestor." [3]

The parish of Roxby in the North Riding of Yorkshire had some more early records of the family. "This place, in the Domesday Survey called Rozebi, was formerly the property of the Boynton family, who had a considerable mansion here, and in the reign of Henry V. founded a chapel of ease to the rectory of Hinderwell, of which they were patrons." [2]

Much further to the south in the parish of Lanteglos, Cornwall, Robert de Boyton in the reign of Edward I. gave the the church of Lanteglos, to the hospital of St. James at Bridgewater. [4]

The Boyntent Motto +

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Il tempo passa
Motto Translation: Time passes.
