    Death of Edward Hougham Royes
    The text reads (verbatim):
    ROYES. - On the 23rd instant, at the residence of her son-in-law, Denham Street, Rockhampton, Edward Hugham Royes, only brother of the Hon. Charles John Royes, Windsor Castle, Jamaica and uncle of Dr Royes Bell, London, and father of Mrs. Alexander Henry, of Rockhampton. Aged 72 years. - Sydney and home papers please copy.
    [NOTES:
    1. Edward was not the only brother of Charles John Royes (who had in fact died the year before, but the Australian family seem to be unaware of that) but he may have been the only surviving brother. In which case he was the last surviving son of Solomon and Mary Royes.
    2. "Mr. Alexander Henry" is a misprint - elsewhere it is Mrs. Alex... Which daughter married Alexander Henry? probably Eleanor?]
    Buried 23 Aug 1878  Rockhampton, QLD, Australia Find all individuals with events at this location  [8
    Age: 62 
    Cause: asthma 
    • Presbyterian, Section 3 Grave 355 - listed as aged 63
    Notes 
    • He uses "Mordaunt" as the second name of one of his sons, who in turn continues this usage with two of his sons. This probably indicates an awareness of the family pedigree - his great grandmother was a Mordaunt [9]
