  • Notes 
    • From Genealogical and Family History of the State of New Hampshire by Ezra S. Stearns, Vol 2, p. 863:

      [Boyce] is a name of French origin, and was carried into England by Huguenots who fled from the persecutions of their countrymen in France. The name as originally spelled was Bois, which is equivalent to the English word wood, and belongs to the class called local surnames. On the adoption of surnames by the common people of France, this was taken by many who lived in or near a wood or handled wood. [1]
