..hard frontier life had something to do with families not being spread across a couple of decades; my Roylance ancestors were living in a thriving northern city in the middle of the English Industrial Revolution. It seems that they were all living pretty urban industrial lives working in hatting factories, as tailors, railway engine drivers and warehouse managers. It is interesting that my grt grt grandfather, Charles, had 11 kids from 1863 to 1884! And the ones recorded all seem to have lived past childhood so perhaps there were even more. I think your John Roylance and mine must have lived very different lives - ironic when they may have shared Roylance ancestors in the 18th century. Regards, Jaimie
