This family name is spelled Doyl, Doyle, Doyal, Doyell, Doyall, Dial, ETC. in the many records found in IOW/Southampton Co.
Earliest record I know is a will for Samuel Doyle, dated 1719/20 IOW naming wife Jane, children Edward, Daniel, Elizabeth and Mary.
Edward Doyle, will 1762 in Southampton Co. is believed to be son mentione4d in the first will. This Edward, b before 1719, lists wife Elizabeth and son Hardy as coexecutors, so Hardy would have been born by 1740. Other children are Edmund, Daniel, William, Josiah, Jacob, Carr, Dorcas (m. Hardy Bevans) and Elizabeth.
There are many records that I have seen mentioning DOYLE children above and their probable descendants, but I have not had much success in placing these later ones with their immediate ancestor.
My connection begins with a marriage between a HARDY (b abt 1776/80) to Mary Hart in 1801 in Southampton Co. At some point this HARDY begins to use the spelling "Doyal" and our branch has used this spelling for over 200 years. However, other spellings creep in from time to time, and we know better than to neglect other spellings when we search.
There is an Edward DIAL, DYLE, who is found early in Nansemont Co. and most of his descendants use the DIAL spelling. This family does not APPEAR to connect to the Southampton Doyle bunch.
Other surnames who marry into this family are VICK, JOHNSON, COUNCIL, BARNES etc. (Although I have other family connections in this county, I do not know much more about those in the particular branches listed here that connect to Doyles.)
I am not a real researcher--just a gatherer.
