Nicholas Hoyt (also Nicholas Hayts or Nicholas Hoit) (May 7, 1620 – ?) was a deputy of the General Assembly of the Colony of Connecticut from Norwalk in the session of October 1673.

He was the son of Simon Haite[5][6] and Deborah Stowers. He arrived in America on September 6, 1628, with his father and brother, Walter Hoyt, at the age of eight.[3]

By 1630, the family is recorded as being settled in Dorcester, Massachusetts.,[3] but later relocated to Scituate, and by 1640, to Windsor, Connecticut.[3]
