    Death Certificate for Caroline Royes 23 Aug 1863
    Wife of Charles Royes, probably Charles John Royes sr
    Notes 
    • Death certificate identifies her as the wife of Charles Royes, Windsor Estate, St Ann's, Jamaica.

      In the family tradition it is held that Charles snr had an English wife 19 years his junior, that they had a son, that the son died at age 3 and she returned to England. So a possible scenario is that Caroline was Charles snr's wife, that Charles Hougham Royes is the son referred to and died in 1861. Note that Caroline's daughter was born about 1861 so we can further speculate that she returned to England because of the pregnancy or birth and a fear that this child might die in Jamaica. Was the daughter's illness the reason for her return?

      If Caroline was Charles snr's wife then he had children before he married her, so he did not resort to his plantation partner/s as a result of his wife returning to England.

      Note that we have subsequently discovered a bride to be identified as the only daughter of the Hon Charles Royes. She is named Caroline and would have been born about the time of the wife Caroline being in Jamaica. It seems reasonable to assume that she was a daughter of Charles and Caroline, and that "only daughter" means only living daughter.

    Notes 
    • From Norman Cameron Moore (edited): Bravo had a great friend, Royce [Charles John Royes sr], who built a house and bought an estate Windsor at St. Anne's Bay for his wife and daughter, Doocie [Caroline Ada]. Royce's wife died and he sold Windsor to Bravo who gave it to his daughtter [Louise] and her husband [John R Cameron] and family. Doocie was brought up with the Cameron family and subsequently married a Scottish Militia Colonel [William] GUILD who had a "farm" at NORTH BERWICK (Castle Mains) where we went to visit when we lived in EDINBURGH. Willie and Doocie Guild had three children (Madge [Margaret de Hougham], Sybil, Royse [John Royes]).
