There was a John Royal son of Charles Royal in the county in 1769. I
believe that
this John was also the son of Charles who had died in 1755. There was
also an Arthur Royall 1730-1799 who sold land in 1763 that had belonged to
Charles Royall. This same Charles patented land in Duplin-Sampson and New
Hanover co. NC in 1750. This Charles likely was The brother of Thomas
(above) who had first settled in Pasquotank Co. Area in 1720. Thomas or a
son Thomas may have lived in Sampson prior to 1800.

of Cornelius Royall. He may have married ________ HARDY.

Elizabeth Barnsfeld was the daughter of Anne and William
Barnsfeld who died about 1715.

Royall Jr.

Note: Barnsfeld is a German name-----Barfield/Barefield is English
