THis is the information I have on the family of George ROYLACE. I am interested in the family in Utah. My ancestor was Jame's grandson, Thomas ROYLANCE, who emigrated to Australia in 1885/6.


1. George ROYLANCE.[1] Born on 26 Jun 1781 in Lower Peover, Co Cheshire, England. George died in Allostock, Co Cheshire, England on 24 Mar 1866; he was 84.[2] Religion: Non-Conformist.

George was the son of John ROYLANCE and Ann HOLFORD. He was born in the Parish of Lower Peover , Co Cheshire, England. [3]

He married Elizabeth RYCROFT and they had seven children, all of whom lived into adulthood. In later years his children moved from the Parish of Lower Peover to the Cheshire towns of Chester, Newton, Allostock and Middlewich. Two sons, John and William ROYLANCE, emigrated to America with their families, travelling as missionaries of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, and settling in Springvale, Utah. [4] His other children stayed in England, and continued to live in County Cheshire and surrounds.

On 25 Dec 1806 when George was 25, he married Elizabeth RYCROFT, in Lower Peover, Co Cheshire, England.[5] Born on 18 Jun 1778 in Huxley, Co Cheshire, England. Elizabeth died in Allostock, Co Cheshire, England on 6 May 1867; she was 88. Buried in 1867 in Allostock, Co Cheshire, England. Religion: Non-Conformist. Occupation: Home Duties.

They had the following children:
       2       i.       John (1807-1887)
       3       ii.       James (1811->1862)
              iii.       Ann. Born on 28 Mar 1813 in Lower Peover, Co Cheshire, England.[6],[7] Ann died in England.

Ann was the only daughter of George Roylance and Elizabeth Rycroft.

       4       iv.       George (1814-1896)
              v.       Samuel. Born on 19 Jan 1817 in Co Cheshire, England.[8] Samuel died in England. Religion: Non-Conformist.

Samuel was the son of George Roylance and Elizabeth Rycroft. He was born in Co Cheshire, England at the beginning of the nineteenth century.

       5       vi.       William (1819-)
       6       vii.       William J (1819-1895)
              viii.       Thomas. Born on 3 Sep 1820 in Lower Peover, Co Cheshire, England.[8] Thomas died in England. Religion: Non-Conformist.

Thomas was the son of George Roylance and Ann Elizabeth Rycroft.
