Editor's Message

A big thanks to all those who so graciously supplied articles for the Newsletter!  The issues are much larger now, and that should appeal to all subscribers as well as your editor.  The more information we can distribute, the better our chances of making the needed connections.
Another large issue is already in the making for Volume III, No. 3; it will include the materials collected for the BOYT/BOYETT families in the state of Mississippi, with some ancestral connections, and all the census and other records which have been located for documentation.  The issue has been placed on a computer, and is now being edited and reviewed by one of the chief participants in this project, Frances Parkinson.


Anyone who has evidence or sound oral tradition of a French Huguenot origin of their BOYT/BOYETTE ancestors should contact Deloyce Conrad who is having a search made in the earliest French and Dutch/Flemish (BOYDT) repositories. A photocopy of the earliest Contemporary record of your ancestor is needed, along with your reason for believing the Huguenot origin, even if the ancestor sailed from a British or Irish port.  She also wishes to contact any descendants or researchers of the Huguenot family BOYD who arrived in SC before 13 July 1687.  Mr. James BOYD was the son of Jean BOIDET and a native of de Bordeaux Province de Guienne.  His children were Jeanne, Elizabeth, Jacques, & Jean Auguste born in Carolina.  Deloyce Conrad, Friedinger Str. 6 8031 Seefeld, West Germany.

Editor’s note:   In the original text, some capitalization of names was used, this has been incorporated; additionally, when the surname BOYTE was used in the text without all capital letters, your editor took the liberty to do so in this version in order that proper notice might be given all BOYTE entries.

Also, the footnotes includes in the text were numbers 71-74, but my computer will only allow footnotes to begin with number 1, so please note this difference.

Since this BOYTE family includes given names that appear in several generations and many BOYT/E BOYET/T/E families in the Southern States,  it appears that my long belief that all the BOYT/E BOYET/T/E families originated in Virginia was wrong. If anyone has additional information on this Thomas BOYTE, please share the data with the Newsletter subscribers.

Notes:    Jesse BOYET was born about 1773 in North Carolina.  He was in Bedford County, Tennessee in 1830.  Jesse BOYET was in Carroll Co., Tennessee on 15 October 1833 when he wrote a letter to James BOYET (a brother) in Bedford County.  In the letter he said he had heard from his son Jehu who was in Warren County, Mississippi and that old Aunt Isabel HAYES was well.

Isabel HAYES  and Priscilla BOYET were sisters,  daughters of Thomas and Isabel JERNIGAN.   Their daughter Priscilla JERNIGAN married Etheldred BOYET and were the parents of Jesse and James. Their daughter Isabel JERNIGAN was the wife of Jesse HAYES.  She was listed in 1830 as between the ages of 80 and 90, but was probably closer to 80 than 90 and is probably the older woman residing with Henry J. HAYS as shown above.

Jesse BOYET went into partnership with Thomas H. HAYS to buy land in Carroll County on 8 March 1831.   He sold out to Thomas on 5 June 1834.


October Court 1815: 28 July 1814.   Michael CAMPBELL in his own right and as executor of Philip PHILIPS dec'd of Davidson County to Catharine BOYET and James HANEGAN, adms. of Jehu BOYET dec'd of Bedford County, $95 for 46 acres, 14 poles, on the waters of Rock Creek beginning at John AKINS southwest corner in Michael CAMPBELL’s old line at a cedar stake running west 80 poles to a cedar stake and hickory then north 100 poles with the county line to an elm then east 70 poles to a hickory and stringwood to John AKINS northwest corner then with his line south 100 poles to the beginning.    Signed:    Michael  CAMPBELL,  Executor  of  Philip PHILIPS. Witnesses:  Rob’t McCRECY, John AKINS.



29 January 1812, Bedford Co., TN.   Deed from John RECORD to
Etherald (sic) BOYET.  There were four witnesses to this deed:
Sion RECORD, Jehu BOYET, Jonathan McMUREY (sic), and James BOYET.
The deed was proved in court on the oaths of Jonathan McMURRAY
and James BOYET.


    A deed from Jesse and PAtience WATKINS to Etheldred BOYET, dated 8 October 1801, is recorded three times.   These are in Volume 8, page 75, Volume 9, page 2, and Volume 9, page 281.  Of particular interest, is that the witnesses in the first two deeds are listed as John HAYS and John BOYET, but in the third record it clearly shows that it was JEHU BOYET.  In this last recording an additional notation is added that the deed was proved at the August 1804 term of court on the oath of Jehu BOYET.  This is the deed  Lazarus  HOWELL  wrote  to  Etheldred  BOYET  about  after Etheldred had moved to Tennessee.

Note:  These records show that Etheldred's son was named JEHU and not JOHN.  The handwriting of the period, as well as the unusual name Jehu, have caused the names to be used interchangeably in the records of Etheldred's descendants.

Therefore, in the Newsletter, Volume I, Number 2, page 15, the marriage of John BOYT to Cathy WILDER should read:

Jehu BOYT to Cathy WILDER.

Richard Sassman reports:   "Reading a photostatic copy of the original bond, Jehu BOIET (sic) appears twice in the text and the signature is either Jehu BOYT or Jehu BOYET.   The curly line surrounding the word "seal" goes over the "e" if there is one. Catherine KILLINGSWORTH married first, 27 February 1798, John WILDER."
