You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.
The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net. For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Origins of surname
This name is of Anglo-Saxon origin and was considered a North of England variant of Hole or Houle, found in the south. It comes from the oeld English holh, meaning hole or hollow, describing where a person lived.
There is an isolated baptism records in 1781 for William Hoyle, son of Jean and Marie Hoyle, in St Lawrence, but the first family to become established was that of William Hoyle (not the same) and Susanne Le Lievre, who married in St Clement in 1795.
