Does anyone know how the Hoyle Bank/ Hoyle Lake area came to be named?

Currently researching our Hoyle family History, and I've often wondered about the use of the name locally.

Bert you forgot to add a pinch of salt and forget about the beautiful scroll they advertise unless your printing your own money.

Salt is bad for you, don't forget a lake is a hole before it fills up with water. think

Thanks Bert - I'm aware of the origins of the surname, as I believe my Yorkshire family are descended from the Breton, de Hoyle.

It would appear then that the local name was derived from a geographical feature rather than any connection with the surname. wink

Some info here:

http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/place/place_page.jsp?p_id=1157

http://hoylakeandwestkirby.com/#/history/4537948692

The present name of Hoylake is derived from the "High Lake" or "Heye-pol", which once extended several miles along the coast from Hilbre to Dove Point at Meols.
At low tide it had a depth of up to 20 feet of water and was protected by a wide sandbank,known as Hoyle Bank, providing a safe anchorage for ships that were too large to sail up the Dee to Chester.
