About Captain Joseph Royall

Joseph Royall III (1646-1732) was the son of Joseph Royall and wife Ann Banks. He was born in Virginia. Joseph served in the Colonial militia, rising to the rank of captain.. He served as Sheriff of Henrico and as vestryman of Curles Episcopal Church in Bristol Parish. He was a Justice of the Peace for Henrico County July 1702-1722.

Joseph married twice. His second wife was Mary, widow of George Archer, whose daughter Margery (Archer) Bullington, mentions in her will dated 20, January 1691/92 her brothers John Archer and Henry Royall. There are many claims but NO documents that one of his wives was Mary Eppes, daughter of Francis Eppes and wife Elizabeth Littlebury. There are claims that his first wife was named Thomasin, but again, no proof. I think those sources are confusing the generations of Joseph Royalls. This Joseph's father DID marry a Thomasin.

Joseph appeared in many court documents and land transactions during his life. These serve to verify his life as well as to give us an impression of him.

  • In 1678 Grand Jury presented to Joseph for playing cards on the Sabbath
  • He made a deposition 20, February 1681/82, Henrico, stating he was 26 years of age or thereabouts.
  • With Captain William Randolph and Francis Epes, the husbands of his half sisters, Royall was joint patentee, 20 April 1680, of 580 acres known as "Martin's Swamp" lying in Bermuda Hundred Neck on the south side of the James River and adjoining lands of the three grantees.
  • In her will dated Nov. 1686, Katherine Isham bequeathed "to my son Joseph Royall all my lands" and made him one of her executors.
  • In 1690, he received a large land grant as headrights for paying passage of colonists and slaves. Henrico County taxed Capt. Joseph Royall on ten levies and 1,200 acres in 1736.
