The name Royals was carried to England in the enormous movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Royals family lived in Kent. Their name, however, is a reference to Roisel, France, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Royals family


The surname Royals was first found in Kent, where they held a family seat from very early times, and where they were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Royals Spelling Variations


Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Royle, Royal, Royell, Royl, Roille, Riall, Ryle, Ryall, O'Riall and many more.
