    Notes 
    • A Sam. Tyson Royes listed In Index to Quarter Sessions cases, Sydney, Oct 1831. He was charged with stealing 11 shillings one penny from his employer, Capper Pass, Baker in George Street. He presented to his trial two references
      (1) from Thomas Dobson of London dated 5 Aug 1829 to Robert Lambert of "Bathurst, Sydney" to "introduce... Mr Samuel Tyssen Royes – he purposes visiting New South Wales in hopes of making his fortune. I have had the pleasure to know his father for upwards of thirty years - a very respectable upright honest man..."
      (2) from ? Lachlan of 22 Great Alie Street [Whitechapel, London] dated 3 Aug 1829 to J. Coghill of Sydney: "I take the liberty by this of introducing to you Mr Royes (son of a highly respectable gentleman) who visits Australia in search of employment. If you want a Clerk or Superintendent on your farm you will oblige me by taking Mr Royes he has ever conducted himself with the strictest sobriety, integrity, industry and ability..."
      It seems his employer claimed that he had stolen £8.15.0 but it appears that Samuel challenged this for there are subsequent statements from his employer stating inter alia that "I cannot swear whether the prisoner informed me before he went into the hospital about 3 weeks ago [from 13 Sep 1831] that he had received the said moneys or not."
      Samuel pleaded guilty on the 20th and was sentenced on the 25th "to be imprisoned in His Majesty's Gaol of Sydney for and during the of [sic] three calendar months". And that is the last we know of Samuel.

      One Tyssen had Hougham as a second name and there are several Samuel Tyssens, one of whom married a Hougham. Samuel Tyssen Royes is a cousin. I believe it is safe to assume that this Samuel Tyssen Royes is the son of Solomon Royes and Mary Hougham, and that he arrived in Sydney towards the end of 1829 (based on his letters of reference)
