My father's grandmother's mother's mother was a Roylance. We have in my family a 17-page letter from JOSHUA ROYLANCE, sent in 1852 from Ward's Island NY, where he had recently arrived.
The letter is to Joshua's mother, back home in Styal, Cheshire, England. Does anyone here have record of Joshua? The letter has been passed down in my family (in England) for these 150 years. I would love to know what happened to him next.
