Notes on Christopher ROYD 1549
Notes on Christopher ROYD 1549
of Brownehill in Soyland
married first his cousin, Elizabeth Royde, d. of Brian ROIDES, gentleman
married second in Elland Grace Dewhurst.

In 1576 he conveyed 1 acre called Middillode Close to his mother Grace WODDE and sold 1 acre, 1 rood in Estflatt to Robert Townend; in 1579 he sold 3 acres called 'ffarr fflatt' and1 acre in Soyland to Gilbert Raminesden, and in 1586 mortgaged Brownehill to Andrew Holden of Haslingdon, Lancs (his son later sold it to Holden). He sold 'three four acres' in Soyland, containing 5 acres, to Thomas ffoxcroft in 1591 and Pighell, containing 1 acre 2 roods, to Edward Tattersall, and 'Severall' containing 2 acres 2 roods to Thomas Denton in 1594 (again, son sold more to Denton). Died August 1600 and buried at Elland. Succeeded by eldest son John.

RC Note: he certainly seemed to sell a lot of land! Wonder what he was spending his money on??? 
Notes on connection to the ROYD family.
Notes on connection to the ROYD family.
31/7/16: made connection between Christopher ROYD, father of John Royd who married Susannah Fielden and the rest of the Elland family. connection restored!

On reviewing this in May 2012, there was a change to the original geneology

To confirm what is backed up by (online) parish records, checked on FindMyPast, plus backup from Wakefield transcrption 9

GRACE ROYD married JOHN MARSLAND in Elland in 1646
GRACE (Gratia) ROYD was born in Elland to a JOHANNIS ROYD in 1618
JOHANNES ROYD married SUSANNAH fFIELDEN in Elland in 1607

The Pedigree of the Family Royd book does not have a John marrying a Susannah Fielden. The only mention of Susannah Fielden is of a cousin (who married an Utley). This does show a connection between the family.

The JOHN ROYD (b. 1580) originally listed as the father of GRACE ROYD in this website is listed as dying in 1602 in the Royd Pedigree book- so connection there is not possible.

Reviewing all possible options, it appears the father for Grace is the JOHN ROYD who married ELIZABETH LIGHTOWLERS in 1621. He was born in 1576, so could easily have had an earlier wife, in Susannah. To support this, a Susannah ROYDE, wife of Joh'is was buried in Elland 15 July 1620. (He also had a mother and sister called Grace, which would support naming a child called Grace). The Royd Pedigree book does appear to cover all Royds in Soyland/Elland,so unlikely completely unknown line.

The connections have been altered accordingly.

Royds Lodge History
Royds Lodge History
Status: Located;

The lineage of the Royds family was first published in 'The Pedigree of The Family of Royds', in 1910, by the Hon. Col Sir Clement Molyneux Royds CB, TD, MP. This document was updated in 1952 by the late Lt Col the Rev. Giles Royds Brocklebank, PGChaplain. 'The Pedigree of The Family of Royds', together with other archives, document the growth of the family between the 14th and 16th centuries and clearly show the development of the family name in its transition from 'del Rode' to 'Royds'.

The earliest traces of the Royds family are to be found at Soyland, then a small town approximately 5 miles south-west of Halifax, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The earliest family record refers to John del Rode, who died in 1334, and reads:

John del Rode (dead in 1393) had messuage and 24 acres 'le Brigge' in Soyland, Graveship of Sowerby, Halifax, and a messuage of 7.5 acres.

The Royds family remained in the Halifax area until approximately 1500, when they relocated to Rochdale, approximately 20 miles form their original home town and in the neighbouring county of Lancashire.

Following their move to Rochdale, records show that the Royds family held property in Wolstenholme and later in Little Wardle. They became firmly established when the right to bear arms was confirmed by Robert Cooke, Clarenceux, to William Rodes of Skyrket, County of York, in 1585.
The Royds Family Arms

During the 17th and 18th centuries, the family, appreciating the growth in trade throughout the country, developed, together with their continuing interest in yeoman farming, a strong connection as wool-staplers. An inventory of the goods and chattels of John Royds of Castleton, dated the 27th November 1731, showed he possessed a well stocked farm and comfortably furnished house. The inventory reveals a stock of 11 cows, 2 horses, 2 pairs of looms and an extensive stock in the shop, all valued at a total of £718.18.11d.

Two generations later in 1786, James Royds of Falinge purchased land at Brownhill and later, in the same vicinity, built Mount Falinge. Mount Falinge was built in a commanding position on sloping land between Cronkeyshaw and Falinge Road. The 18-acre park stretched from the junction of Sheriff Street and Falinge Road to Cronkeyshaw.

In 1826, James Royds produced a hand-written account of the family. This account was found at Mount Falinge shortly after his death on the 2nd February 1842. The account revealed that James Royds married Mary of Rochdale (1767-1816), the fourth and youngest daughter of Charles Smith and Theodosia Ann Eyre of Lisbon, in 1784. They had 12 children, of which Clement was the eldest. The account also documents Albert Hudson's lineage, describing how he married Jane, the daughter of Charles Hudson of Halifax, in 1810. On the 11th September 1811, their first child, Albert Hudson, was born at Mount Falinge. He was followed by Emma, Edmond, William Edward, John and Julia.

In 1827, Albert Hudson's father, Clement, entered the world of banking by purchasing the Rochdale business of Messers Rawson & Co. and began the process of ending his wool-stapling affairs. Clement lived until 1854, having been the Chief Magistrate for many years and, in 1850, the High Sheriff of Lancaster. The bank, better known as the Rochdale Bank, and at one stage as Messers Clement Royds and Company, was later merged into the Manchester and Salford Bank. The bank was then absorbed by its London agents, William Deacons Bank, and is now part of the Bank of Messers Williams and Glyn.

Found on

WILLIAM PLANT, a veteran terra cotta and brick maker, of Toronto, and one of the oldest in the business in that city, was born in 1824, in Staffordshire, England, son of James and Lucy (Pearson) Plant, the former born about 1784, and the latter in 1786. James Plant died in England aged about forty years, from the effects of heavy lifting, his widow surviving him until 1866.

William Plant grew to manhood and received his education in his native land, there learning the terra cotta and brick-making business, in which he engaged when twenty years of age. In 1863 he came to Canada and settled in Toronto, where for a short time he worked for Thomas Nightingale, a brickmaker of the Queen City, but the following year he embarked in the manufacture of terra cotta on his own account, his plant being located at Yorkville. After continuing here for some time, Mr. Plant removed to the grounds now occupied by the Western Cattle Market, where he engaged in brickmaking for two years, then purchasing twenty-two acre of land on Wells Hill, where he continued in business for twelve years. He then sold out his business and purchased 240 acres of land at Niagara Falls, where five or six years were spent, at the end of which time Mr. Plant returned to Toronto, and now resides at No. 13 Fisher street.

In 1844 Mr. Plant was married to Miss Sarah Whitehouse, born at Albury, England, in 1825, who died in Toronto in 1900. She was a woman of sweet disposition and an exemplary Christian character, influencing for good all who met her. She was a daughter of Stephen and Harriet (Franks) Whitehouse, who settled in Canada in 1863, Mr. Whitehouse being a brick-maker who will be remembered by many of the early settlers of Toronto. To Mr. and Mrs. Plant were born the following children : Harriet, who married James Waword, of Muskoka, and has six sons and three daughters ; James, a well-known brickmaker of New York State, who received the gold medal for terra cotta work at the World s Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893, and who married Sarah Edwards, and has three children, James, L and Louise ; and Lucy, wife of William Rankin, a well-known business man of Toronto, and the mother of one child, Annie, who holds the degree of B.A. from the University of Toronto, and is well known in literary circles in Canada and the United States.

Mrs. Plant died in the faith of the Presbyterian Church, to which her husband also adheres. In political matters he has always been
a Reformer.

William Robinson in Stockport Sports
This is an extract from Sport Around Stockport, The Early Years, a book by Simon Myers. He examines the history of various sporting clubs around Stockport, including the rugby club.

The first team captain was to be William Robinson - 'With the exception of Fred Saville probably no importation of the Stockport Rugby Club has done the first team greater service'...'One of the most dangerous wing three-quarters in a Lancashire Senior Competition.' He had been at the club for 3 years, joining from Heckmondwike (West Yorkshire) and now played for his adopted County. William was still playing for Stockport when the club folded, and died in 1949 aged 75, living in Castle Street, Edgeley.

[the club folded in 1903]
