    Name Meaning

    French: altered form of Flemish Van Oye or Van Hoye (or perhaps an Americanized form of any of their French variants, such as Vanoye, Vannoye, and Vanhoye), a habitational name for someone from a place called with Middle Dutch oye ‘(water) meadow’, as for example Hoye, near Ghent, Belgium. This form of the surname has apparently died out in France. Compare Van Hoy and Vanoy .

    History: According to the family tradition, the ancestors of Vannoy family were Huguenots from France who first settled in the Netherlands and later moved to North America. However, their surname is not listed in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors, nor in the similar register of the Huguenot Society of America.
