Boys Family History

Recorded as Boys, Boyse, Boice, Boyce, Boyson and others, this interesting "British Isles" surname has a number of possible origins. Firstly, it may be a topographical name for someone who lived by a wood, and hence deriving from the Old French word "bois", probably introduced by the Normans after the Conquest of England in 1066, secondly it may be a patronymic from the Middle English occupational word "boy" meaning a lad or young servant, thirdly it may derive from an Old English and Welsh pre 7th century personal name Boia.
