Joynt History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The Irish surname Joynt is originally a Huguenot name, from the Old French word "joint" meaning "united," or "joined."

Early Origins of the Joynt family

The surname Joynt was first found in counties Limerick and Mayo. Most of the Huguenots arrived in Ireland via England, but there were five Huguenot regiments recruited directly from Holland by English King William of Orange, in his fight against the Irish forces of the deposed James II in 1690. Following William's victory at Boyne, most of these Huguenots settled in Ireland.
