NoteSupport for Israel Hoyt and Mercy Raymond being the parents of Raymond Hoyt is from two sources.

By way of Library and Archives Canada, an excerpt is provided from the Hoyt Family Fonds, CAIN nbr. 159758, Council of Archives, New Brunswick, a portion of which is as follows:

Loyalist Israel Hoyt (1742-1803) the son of Joseph Hoyt, was born in Norwalk, Connecticut. He married Mercy (Mary) Raymond, and they came to what is now New Brunswick on the ship 'Union' in the spring fleet of 1783, settling at Kingston, Kings County. Israel and Mercy had six children: Hezekiah, Samuel, Israel Jr., Raymond, Anna, and Esther. Israel was one of the first church wardens of Trinity Church, Kingston, elected in 1784.


The second source, rather more sketchy, appears in A Genealogical History of the Hoyt, Haight, and Hight Families: with Some Account of the Earlier Hyatt Families, A list of the First Settlers of Salisbury and Amesbury, Mass., etc. by David W. Hoyt, Providence, 1871.

Page 426 gives a list of the children of Israel and Mercy. The associated information has problems, but does mention that son Raymond Hoyt married Eleanor 'Ghent'.
