I too am researching the early Roys. I have not verified the information, but have you seen the Port Royal, VA website? www.historicportroyal.com/town_history.htm
"The Roy family, headed by Hugh, first came to Virginia in 1634. Hugh's son, Richard, settled in King & Queen county and was married about 1679. To this marriage were born at least four children: Hannah, John, William (or Richard Jr.), and James. (I am descendant from James.) Hannah, born about 1680, would marry that early leader of Spotsylvania County, Larkin Chew."
I too am puzzled about who Hannah's (and James's) mother is. I have read that her name is Dorothy Peyton, but have not confirmed this. Other sources say that Dorothy Peyton was married to Hannah's brother John, but this website says her name was Dorothy Buckner. Dorothy Buckner had been priviously married to Charles Smith.
I would appreciate hearing about any new information you come across.
