    Notes 
    • Her parents were married in Queensland, but apparently moved to New Zealand soon after.

      Ron Royes: The Ferguson family moved to Australia when Phoebe was three. She was the sixth of nine children. [In fact, she appears to be the fifth.]
      Phoebe worked on a sheep property at Inglewood, south western Queensland. An unmarried mother, she gave birth to a son ROBERT CLAUDE, born in Inglewood on 13 October 1931.
      On 2 November 1935, she married Mordaunt Herbert Royes (b. 27 June 1913 in Normanton) in Townsville, Queensland.

      Steve Royes: Phoebe Amelia Ferguson was my Nana. Dad (Herbert George Royes, son of Mordaunt and Phoebe) will attest to Nana being related to the Antoninis on her mother's side I believe.
      Nana was born on 3rd November 1908. Her father did lose a wife (Nana's mother) and remarried.

    Notes 
    • Information about this family and the children's marriages (except Phoebe Amelia's) from christy1299 ancestry.com
    • The Fergusons originally lived in Brisbane before [moving] to Kingaroy. It was there, in 1919, that Katherine died. Claude de J and his brother William James pop up later in the 1930s on electoral rolls. I have also found both a Donald John and George Joseph on the rolls living as farmers in central Qld. - christy1299
