Re: Origin of Hoysted name

My grandmother was Caroline Hoysted. Married Patrick J Cullen in Dublin C 1903.
She was the daughter of Piele Hoysted from Waltertown House, Kildare.
I have the family tree back to early 1600s. Some members of the family went to Australia / NZ and others to Canada.
One of the last Hoysteds with that name lives in Birr, county Offaly in Ireland. Frank has a lot of family information. He told me that the Hoysteds came to Ireland with Cromwell and that they had been in Essex in England but had originated in Denmark. The name Hoysted when translated back to Danish means "Hill of Sacrifice"
I hope this is of some interest.
Peter.
