An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017

Origins Available: English, Scottish


The name Boyse was originally derived from the Old French "bois," which meant "wood." The name was no doubt originally used in France by someone living or working in the woods. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Boyse Early Origins



The surname Boyse was first found in Essex where William de Bois was listed as holdings land there at the time of the Domesday Book in 1086.

However, due to the literal translation of the name into English, we cannot presume that there is one main branch from which all others have evolved. By example, "De Bois-Arnaud, hereditary stewards of the counts of Breteuil, sires of Poilly," signatures appeared in the charter of William Fitz-Osborne to the Lire Abbey during the reign of William I.

De Bois-Herbert who were barons of Halberton, Devon were listed there in 1050. Apparently they flourished in Dorset, but the Devon record was a branch of the family at that time.

A little further to the north in Buckinghamshire, De Bois-Robert from whom Robert de Bois descended held estates there in 1086. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Another source notes that some of the family were Protestant Huguenots who fled to England from Brittany settling in Thorney, Canterbury, Norwich and London. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
