"Probably originally Boyville, from Bouville, a parish near Rouen, France. The Scottish family are descended from Richard Boyle of Kelburn in Ayrshire, temp. Alexander in.
(The origin and signification of Scottish surnames. Clifford Stanley Sims, 1862)
"BOYLE. This Scottish surname, by many
thought to be the same as Irish Boyle (from
O'Baoghail, Anglicized as Boghill, Boyle, and
even as Hill), is of Norman origin, from
Boyville, otherwise Boeville or Beauville, near
Caen (Baring-Gould, p. 212). DD de boiu
(= David de Boiuil) appears as a witness
between 1164-74 (Melros), William de
Boyvill was one of an inquisition held at Carlisle,
1280, and fa 1291 he was appointed to take
the fealty of the bishop of Whitherne, and
thereafter with the bishop the fealty of those
of all Galloway (Bain, n, p. 59, 124). In 1291
Henry de Boyville was castellan of the castles
of Dumfries, Wigtown, and Kirkcudbright, to
succession to Sir William de Boyville (ibid.,
n, 576, 580). Three individuals of this
name, probably all related one to another,
rendered homage fa 1296 (ibid., n, p. 203,
205, 210). In course of time the pronunciation
of the name slipped into one syllable, written
fa 1362 Boyll, 1367 Boyuil, 1482 Boyle, 1500
Boyl, 1560 Boile. Gavin Boyll was prebendary
of Abirnethy, 1547 (Rottok, 37). The name
is not common anywhere outside of Ayrshire
and Wigtownshire, where until recently it was
pronounced in common speech as "Bole." Boill
1721, Bowill 13c., BoyeD 1625, Boylle 1653.
