The name Duboyes 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.

Duboyes Early Origins



The surname Duboyes was first found in Lincolnshire where Nicholas del Bois was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1201. Versions of this name can also be found in the Domesday Book of 1066, as tenants of Norman nobles.
