TROY Family History

This is a very interesting locational surname. It is of French origins. Recorded in several forms including Troy, Troye, Troyes and Troys, it is from the city of Troyes in France. It was probably introduced into England at the time or shortly after the famous Conquest of 1066, although the first recording we have is not until the Hundred Rolls of 1273, two centuries later. This can probably be explained by missing records, although it is also true to say that for at least the first three centuries after the Conquest, there was regular passage of soldiers and merchants in particular, between the countries.

I am a descendant of Margaret Troy who left Ireland with her two daughters (Ellen and Mary) and resettled in Newfoundland in 1833. She may not have directly arrived in Newfoundland but perhaps Boston or surrounding area. I believe that she was from County Waterford. Any information would be helpful.
