The Seaboard Railroad opened the town of Boyette up to new markets in 1902. The train makes it run starting in Turkey Creek picking up crops along the way to market in Palmetto. Farmers would leave crops along the tracks for the train crews to pick up. Boyette was a maintenance center and water stop for the train. As the train continued south the next stop was Wimauma which was named after the daughters of the railroad builder Captain Davis (Willie, Maud and Mary).

The area was first named Fishhawk until the railroad came through and the Post Office opened with Sarah Boyett/e as the first postmaster. (FISHHAWK - Established February 21 1902, with Sarah T. Boyett as postmaster. Name changed to Boyett, April 29 1902.) http://files.usgwarchives.net/fl/hillsborough/history/earlypo.txt
Correction 2/3/2012: Sarah's name is Sarah Elizabeth Boyett and should be listed in the postal records as Sarah E. Boyett not Sarah T. Boyett. S.T. Boyett was Sarah's husband Samuel Thomas Boyett. See Marriage record: https://pbase.com/daveb/hillsborough
Sarah Elizabeth Dormany, Boyett, Alderman, Clark: (b. 1869 d. 1946) http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi/http%22//trees.ancestry.com/tree/19807769/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=8541787

According to an article in the Tampa Preservation, Inc. Issue 4, 2008 Newsletter, Fish Hawk was renamed after the postmasterís husband, Thomas Boyett. James M. Boyett was the Postmaster in Peru/Riverview in the late 1880's which is located on both sides of the Alafia River and a short distance from Boyette. Originally Peru was on the south side and Riverview on the north side. The Boyett family was one of the early Peru settlers (government lot 5, on the river) and descendants of the Boyett's who settled in Benton Co FL in 1842. Benton Co was later re-named to Hernando Co. This line of Boyett's likely share a common ancestor with:

1. Thomas Boyt b. 1665
2. Thomas Boyt Sr. b. 1695, Married Rebecca
3. Edward Boyet Sr. b. 1715, Married Abigail
4. James Boyet b. 1745, Married Sabra Sasser (b.1750)
5. Edward Boyett b. 1775 m. Rebecca
6. Edward Boyett Jr b. 1812 m. Nancy
7. Samuel Thomas Boyett b. 1863 m. Sarah Dormany
