    Notes 
    • Was a carrier who drove for Irvinebank Co, coaches for Chatfield and later was a guard on Mareeba & Normanton lines.
      Hist. record Ravenswood: 1888, Herbert Royes, 5yrs, Bowen Rd, Father Carrier
    • The Royes family provided carrying services in several goldfield areas of North Queensland.

      At the inaugural Mareeba Show in 1907, eleven very creditable entrants for the "neatest and tidiest turn out in single harness" entered the ring, the vehicles being well got up and the horses more than stylish. The "Blue" went to Mr H.C. Royeses' very pretty chestnut with dog cart, while Dr Savage secured second. Bert was a carrier who drove for Irvinebank Co, drove coaches for Chatfield and later was a guard on Mareeba & Normanton Railway lines. It is reported that all train whistles blew long and hard when they finally had a son, George, after six girls.

    There is some debate about who is who. The one on the right with the round face is most like Mary. If this is the case, then the girls are Barbara Maud (who died at 16) in the rear, then Jean, Ruth and Mary from left to right. The photo would have been taken when Barbara was about 14 (let's say 1919) and the others are aged 7, 5 and 10 respectively??
