Hi David, SAXON TIMES (before 1066 AD)
As requested, I am posting some of the information in this regard, originally researched by my cousin Fr. Harold Conway, who corresponded with Col. Desmond Fitzgerald Hoysted, of England.I quote:"An area in north-eastern England 30 miles west of Newcastle has been called Housesteds since Saxon times. This name seems to be a Saxon spelling of an older Danish name left by one of the waves of Danish invasion since the ninth century...The following excerpt from a letter Brigadier Desmond Hoysted received some years ago from the Director of the Danish Genealogical Institute .."There is an almost certain possibility that your family is of Danish origin. We have here in Denmark at least 5 different old manors bearing the name of Hojsted, which name is pronounced the same as Hoysted.."" More information is available by snailmail. Good luck in your research.

Ron Hebert [McEntee/Hoysted]
