  • The Royall family History provides the following comments on the move of Joseph Royall to Virginia.  Dates vary in reports.  The Moran Genealogy has the most exact date of death at 10 March 1654.  His memorial on Find a Grave, which is presumably reporting the dates from his gravestone, report just a year of death 1655.  But the memorial notes that his grave is unmarked, so these dates are not posted on a gravestone..

    Royall Family

    Joseph Royall was born in London, England, 1600 and died March 10, 1654 at Doghams, Charles City, VA. Joseph left England on the Charitie and arrived in Jamestown, Virginia in July 1622.

    He was married three times. His first wife's surname was Tomasin and by 1637 had married his second wife, Ann. In about 1645 he married Katherine Banks in Henrico County VA. Katherine was born in Northamptonshire, England in 1627, daughter of Christopher Banks. Katherine's second husband was Henry Isham, Sr. She died December 1, 1686 in Henrico County, VA. Katherine Banks Royall Isham was great-great-great grandmoter to Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the United States.

    In 1637 Joseph Royall, Sr., received 300 acres of land in Henrico County, Virginia on the south-east side of Turkey Island Creek for transporting colonists to America. According to the record, he was "due 50 acres for his own personal adventure, 50 acres for the transportation of his first wife Thomasin, 50 acres for the transportation of Ann, his now wife, 50 for the transportation of his brother Henry, and 100 for the transportation of two persons, Rob(er)t Warrell and Jon(athan) Wells." In 1638 he received 200 acres in Charles City Co., VA for transporting four persons. In 1642, he received 600 more acres for transporting twelve people, including his third (to be?) wife Katherine Banks. This plot bounded the lands of Edward Maddox "above Sherley hundred &c. on the river, to Dickinans Creeke."

    His plantation eventually grew to 1,100 acres, and he built a residence called Doghams, named after the French river D'Augham. Doghams was located on the banks of the James River above "Shirley Hundred". This tract of land remained in the possession of the Royall family for almost 300 years.
