Featured History: Barton Court near Canterbury was owned by Houghams and their descendants from 1657 to 1902. It is now a Grammar School.
William Henry Royes Featured Most Wanted: Curious about another Jamaican Royes family that would seem to have some connection to our Royes but not sure just what the connection is. William Albert Royes and his wife Alice produced 11 children between 1907 and 1926 in St Ann, Jamaica. See the Most Wanted article for details. The image to the right is that of his son William Henry.
thumb Featured Overviews: The earliest Royes ancestor could be Egil, a mid-6th century king in Sweden. His descendants ended up in Normandie and the d'Avranches from there moved to Kent, England
branches Featured Report: A new report lists the occurrence of last names, how many of each gender, the earliest and latest births for that name.
arms Featured Articles: We have made an attempt to explain the possible origin of family (last) names in our family trees.
