    Notes 
    • Charles John snr. helped Charles jnr. to acquire  the Knapdale property which he later sold and bought a property near Riversdale where he cultivated bananas for export. Apparently mosquitos and malaria became a problem in that area and the next generation moved to Kingston. However note that his obit says "late of Knapdale".

      A Charles Royes jr is listed on the Register of Voters for St Ann's in 1860.

      A Charles John is listed as b1858-d1860 on http://royesfamily.com/family_tree.htm but is probably Charles Mordaunt Royes (1858-c1860)
