      Karen Iliff comments: For a time I also believed that Ellen's father's name was Edward, as I found it on her death certificate - from whatever source, there are a couple of Ancestry trees that show this too.  But given the further information I have collected about her, I doubt it's true - whoever he was, he wasn't a Royes anyway.
      Putting together the Someset Royes family would be an interesting task I think.  Ellen's mother was herself also born to an unmarried mother, and it seems that some of the census relationships are not quite as listed.  Some interesting stories in that history I am sure. [2]
