Per a book by David Webster Hoyt:

John b. 7/13/1644 at Windsor CT., married 1st Mary Lindall, 9/14/1666 & 2d Hannah Unknown. He lived in Norwalk & Danbury; d. about 1711, leaving a widow Hannah.

John Hoyt was nominated for freeman in Norwalk in 1667, & John Haite was a freeman in N. in 1669 (p. 14). We find John Hoyt's land mentioned in a boundary at N., without date. On a table of "The Estates of Lands & Accommodations of ye town of Norwalk", Feb., 1671, is John Hayte, 100; & on a list of "The Children of the Town of N" on child is put down for him, 1672-76, no exact date. John Hayt was one of "the masters or overseers of those pounds lieing by five mile river side", Feb., 1679; & he drew lots nos. 17 & 19 in two divisions of land in Norwalk in 1684. He removed to "Paquiack", or Danbury, before June, 1685, as we learn by deeds from John Hoyt in 1685, 87 & 93. Rev. Thomas Robbins, in a century sermon delivered in Danbury, 1/1/1801, says John Hoyt was one of the eight original settlers of D. in 1685. The births of five of his children are recorded at Norwalk from 1669 to 79, with the spelling Haite.

From the Fairfield probate records we learn that Samuel Hoit & John Hoit, sons of the deed, were ap. adm, est. John Hait late of Danbury, 3/11/1711-12. Invent. 305-9s.-4d., presented 3/27. There is also found on record, in 1712, & agreement between Hannah Hoit, widow of John, & his children.
