George (Ah) Hoy married Ann Christina Newlands.  Her family came from the Stanthorpe area in Southern Queensland (South of Toowoomba).

Hello again
As you can tell I am researching my family and the Hoy family is one of great interest.  I can tell you that if you have a great great and or grandfather with the names George, Robert, Alfred or Thomas Hoy (unless the father of these boys), you are not related.  Not one of these boys ever married and remained single until they died.  The gold was their mistress and mining it was their life.  They did not have time to marry.  My grandmother was the boys' niece.

You will find Ann Christina Hoy (formerly Newlands), is actually buried as Annie Christina Hoy.  Ann Christina Hoy and George Hoy (Hood) had, Agnes Jane, Ada Florence, Ann Christina, Alice (did not live past one year old), Then the boys, Robert, Alfred, George and Thomas.  Ann Christina (Jnr) married Ioan Price (pronounced Yawn). 

I hope this clears up some misconception I have been reading about.

Out of curiosity, were they Chinese?  A lot of discussion this thread about it.

This discussion has been going on for a years about 'George Hoy', of Charters Towers, QLD - was he of Chinese 'AH HOY' or Cambridge England 'HOY' ?  My recent DNA test has cleared it up I hope.
I  mentioned earlier that I'm descendant from 2 of the Fulbourn Cambridge HOYS from the 1855 ship 'Constitution', and I proposed the George Hoy of Charters Towers QLD, was a long lost brother of these Hoys of Maitland, NSW. I was put down proposing such a notion, so I sighed and put the BMD certificates away in the drawer as duds. 
But the DNA test is in and YES I am closely linked to those QLD Hoys (ref Ancestry.com trees +DNA).  So I think I'm safe to assume he wasn't Chinese, but he was a baker.  Check Trove for articles in "Toowoomba Chronicle".
But for some unknown reason c.1867-71 he was obfuscating his name to 'Hood' to make it hard to track him down; maybe like his brother William he had legal troubles? 
So case closed as far as I'm concerned.  Any Qs on the lineage just ask. bye
