Hi Nancy,I started reading your post and it got a little strange, I couldn't figure it out until at the end and then I realized, I know who you are.How is my favorite sister-in-law.I started researching the Royals one of the many times mom was in the hospital.She started talking all about her aunts and uncles.I thought, I should start writing this stuff down.That was at least 3 years ago.I pull all my research out every once in a while and look up more.
We have had so many rainy weekends lately, I decided to pull out the laptop. I can go all the way back to William the Conqueror in 1066.
The hardest thing was trying to keep up with Joseph Royal B-1600.This guy was busy. Had three wives and a lot of kids.
I would like to hear from anyone who can help me fill in the lines with all these kids.
1st. Wife - Ann
2nd. Wife - Thomason
3rd. Wife - Katherine Banks Isham Royall
Wife #3 was married before Joseph to to Henry Isham in 1626 in Pitchly, England
I've uncovered some cool little tidbits of info.
John Royall B-1467 He was a tax collector and held public office under Richard III and Henry VII.
Roger Royall B-1493 was a member of the Palace Guard forHenry VIII from 1513 to 1538.
Joseph Royall B-1550 founded a leather factory and made shoes for the armies of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I. I am currently E-Mailling all over England in search of that Leather factory.Will keep all posted.
