Quote from "The Doty-Doten Family in America" p 499: "Nowhere after Isaac Doty's settlement at Oyster Bay is his name ever written as Doten, nor does that spelling anywhere appear among his descendants. His name is given in the various documents quoted above as Doty, Dotey, Dottie and in other ways that imply the same pronunciation, and even as Doughty, but never with the termination 'en'. The frequency of the spelling Doughty is undoubtedly owing to the presence in the western part of the same county on Long Island of the very numerous and influential family of that name, descended from the Rev. Francis Doughty of Maspeth or Newtown, between whom and the Oyster Bay residents there must have been frequent intercourse. . . . But notwithstanding this occasional misspelling on the records of the town, the name Doty never seems to have been lost or given up by either Isaac Doty or his descendants. . . and of his children, but one (James) ever appears to have even occasionally used the name of doughty. And still nowhere among the living representatives of Isaac Doty was there any tradition or record tracing their ancestry to the Plymouth emigrant.
