The distinguished surname Goy is one of the many names that was brought to France in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from "Gouy," the name of a village located on the Seine River in Upper Normandy, and was most likely first borne in England by Norman settlers who hailed from this region.

Goy Early Origins



The surname Goy was first found in the South of England, where the family was granted lands for having served William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings. The earliest known bearer of the name was Robert le Goiz, who was listed in the Curia Regis Rolls in 1201.
