    Notes 
    • Baptism at Parish of St Lawrence [Sydney], County of Cumberland NSW
      Lived at Cleveland St and Father was Mariner (Ch of England)
      In Death Reg. Mother listed as Maria BOYLE (could be error from submitter)

      Reference in Queensland Gazette Under Dept. of Public Lands, Brisbane 1st September 1888 page 15: Return of all Applications for Timber and other Licenses made to and granted by the Land Commissioners during the months and at the places hereunder specified... Ravenswood (for the month of July 1888) George Royes 'To cut Firewood' 10 shillings (AU$0.10).

      There is a male "H ROYES" listed in the Home Hill Cemetery died 5 Jan 1934 and buried 6 Jan 1934 in grave #369, aged 90, cause of death senility. I believe this is George Hougham Royes but would be aged 87 - I need further confirmation before changing his data. There is also a "J ROYES" in the Home Hill Cemetery list and I suspect this is his wife, Jane.
