    Notes 
    • From May Crow Ravenswood Remembered (1997, Ravenswood Restoration and Preservation Association Inc.) p 11:
      "The Royes lived over near the Showgrounds. They had a very big family but when I knew them Mrs Royes lived there with her son Arthur and her granddaughter Olive. Mrs Royes was an excellent cook and I have heard that she ran a cake shop at one time. I was friendly with Olive, and it was one of my treats to spend a night at her house."
      It was common for grandparents to bring up grandchildren born out of wedlock. Her mother Jane was 21 when she was born and married nearly six years later, possibly in Home Hill. The above quote ("one of my treats was to spend a night at her house") suggests that Olive may have been between, say, 5 and 12 before her grandmother died in mid 1927. This brings us to 1920-1927. The fact that the household apparently consisted only of mum, Arthur and Olive raises questions about where everybybody else was, especially husband George. The children were all now over 22-23. George is on the Australian Electoral Roll for 1925 as living at home in Deighton St (or Bowen Road) though he may not have amended his Electoral Roll entry when it was published. He died in Home Hill.
